Yorkshire Dales National Park Travel Guide: 136 reviews and 503 photos

A beautiful area of northern England which is full of hills, lush green valleys (‘Dales’), white limestone cliffs (‘Scars’), rivers, caves, waterfalls, quaint old villages, fields encased in dry-stone walls and much wildlife – superb for walkers, hikers, cyclists, artists, drivers – a delight to meander through and enjoy the countryside and the company of the friendly locals.

It’s a big area, some 680 square miles (1768 sq km), so there’s a lot to see – you’ll need a good map, good walking shoes and some wet-weather clothes! – anyway, I hope my photos will give you some indication of what the Yorkshire Dales has to offer.

    This page blew me away! What a great overview, Ben! I plan on doing a walk this November right when the weather we be cold, damp, and miserable. But that's nothing compared to the weather I get here, so I'm sure I'll be fine. (Famous last words?) Cheers, Ed.

    One day my YD page will look like yours I hope! :) Btw Richard III also lived at Middleham as a child. Add Dalesbus.org to your tips and it will be perfect.

    Excellent pictures and tips of this beautiful part of Britain. The great scenery, castles, abbey ruins and quaint villages look very tempting. Wish I could have a car there to see it all.

    All these places look so picturesque and serene. It's a pity you are not coming to Poland, but now I understand - there's so much beauty close to you. Great page.
