The Yorkshire Dales
The Yorkshire Dales is a place of outstanding scenery, wildlife, and cultural heritage. The park stretches from the Pennines to Cumbria, and is a very special place to explore. The natural beauty of the Dales is unrivalled, with wildflowers, scrubs and trees decorating the landscape. There are animals of many species in the National Park, including a number of birds living in the moorland.
Amid miles of undulating country land, there are villages and hamlets, which are also a part of the Dales. Many of them have been there for thousands of years and are very charming destinations to discover.
The Dales are famous for its wonderful scenery. Deep valleys, known as dales, with roads meandering between drystone walls and a patchwork of hay meadows and field barns. Up above is heather moorland and distinctive hills, such as the much loved Three Peaks. Get there on the famous Leeds-Settle-Carlisle railway, one of the most spectacular train journeys in England, which cuts through the National Park using tunnels and viaducts, including the iconic Ribblehead.
