Yorkshire Dales National Park
A prime tourist
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is unique - this beautiful place offers a delightful range of things to do and places to visit amongst the stunning Dales limestone scenery.
The Park is home to a rich collection of landscapes, from heather-topped moors to colourful hay-meadows.
There are limestone crags and underground labyrinths of potholes and caves. Traditional stone-built villages are set amongst rolling farmland embroidered with stone barns and drystone walls. There's something to inspire every mood, whether your preference is for the wild and windswept or the quietly tranquil.
