Of course we always knew this - sorry paywalled

Its supporters have been calling it God’s Own County for years and finally recognition has come. According to the latest Lonely Planet guide, Yorkshire — the land of flat caps and Wensleydale, Hockney and Herriot and roast beef and misshapen pudding — is the third-best region in the world.
“Only third?” will come the response from Rotherham to Richmond, from Yorkshire folk aghast not to have beaten Sikkim, a Himalayan state of India, or The Kimberley in Western Australia. However, Yorkshire’s tourist industry will no doubt seize on the accolade awarded to “the world’s hottest trends, destinations and experiences”.
