12 things that prove Yorkshire is better than Lancashire.
But we thought it would be useful to get together just SOME of the reasons why we know that we live in the greatest county, not just in the north, but in the country:
Yorkshire is much bigger than Lancashire - and we all know size matters. Bigger is ALWAYS better, right? RIGHT?! The name says it all, really. It's not Tour de Lancashire, is it? Leeds Festival, Tramlines, need we say anymore? Them lot can keep their Parklife. According to the Sunday Times best places to live list in 2018 - York came out on top. We're not surprised, in all honesty. Our nectar wipes the floor with the version from over the hills, Lancashire Tea. Who would do that to themselves? People the world over don't have the Lancastrian Rag Pudding on their Sunday dinners do they? There's no competition, really. Yeah, we invented it over this side of the Pennines. You can keep your Premier League giants, we'll take this accolade thanks to Sheffield FC, the world's oldest club. While we're on the sports theme, we'll claim Rugby League too, which was invented in Huddersfield back in 1895. Sure Lancashire has Oasis, Stone Roses and a few others, but we think Yorkshire owns this one, just. Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Def Leppard and Human League all score highly here. That's right. Another mention for York, or Jorvik as it was known when the Vikings settled here. There are no arguments here. We see your Thwaites and we raise you Tetley's...and Samuel Smith's, and several others. Lancashire didn't get that name did they? Looking at Yorkshire, it's clear to see why its beauty would lead to such a fitting title.
