A large county in Northern England. Sometimes referred to as the "Texas of England" And rightly so, everything is bigger and better in Yorkshire. Origin of various great accents, ratty little yorkshire terriers and the famous yorkshire pudding. It's titular city is York - a popular tourist destination and it's symbol is a white rose. Yorkshire has a historical feud with neighbouring county, Lincolnshire. Yorkshiremen are stereotyped as wearing flat caps and owning whippet dogs and being miserly.
I've lived in Yorkshire for a decade, luckily no one has realised I'm originally from Lincolnshire!
