Welcome to the Yorkshire Dales
The Yorkshire Dales are considered by many to be amongst the most beautiful areas of Britain. This alone would justify a visit, but there is more than spectacular scenery in the Dales. Much more!
The enormous range of opportunities for having fun or doing business is well worth discovering and this web site is dedicated to the comprehensive signposting of activities and events for all those visitors attracted to our own Yorkshire Dales.
Attracting visitors and locals to make use of this area is key to the economy of the Yorkshire Dales and it is, without question, one of the most beautiful areas in the world; and what’s more after you have enjoyed its picturesque views and laidback way of life we’re sure that you’ll want to come back.
The Yorkshire Dales is loved by people of all ages and it’s easy to see why. The area really offers something for everyone. Thrill seekers can engage in a variety of adventure sports such as caving, fell running, fishing and abseiling, while the more reserved can simply sit back and take in the stunning landscapes and an abundance of wildlife, especially rare birds and flowers.
Dotted in and around the dales there are also a number of small towns and quaint villages which offer unique shopping experiences as well as fantastic places to eat and drink, including a number of real ale public houses and Michelin starred restaurants.
Accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales is varied and suits all budgets. Outdoor types may want to consider one of the region’s campsites, while those seeking ultra-sophistication should consider a five star hotel. There are also plenty of family-owned village guest houses, bed and breakfasts and traditional cottages to choose from.
At YorkshireDales.co.uk, we understand that many visitors wish to spread their wings a little and spend some time in the towns located just outside the boundary of the Dales so we have included guides on those areas also.
We also have sections on the history of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, how it is governed and the individual activities you can take part in, so along with our wide-ranging events in the Yorkshire Dales calendar, making plans to visit us should be as easy as eating a Yorkshire pudding. Enjoy the dales.
