Discover the Nature in the Dales
Discover the wonders of nature in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with our new sister site, Nature in the Dales. Whether you are a visitor to the National Park, a naturalist, professional or student, there is something for you. With stunning photography and detailed information about the species and habitats found in the National Park and where you can see them, we hope you enjoy our new website.
Le Tour - wasn't it fantastique?!
The Tour de France has been and gone, and we are sure it will live fondly in people's memories for many years to come. So what now? We think that the best way to get over the 'post-Grand Départ blues' is to come to the Dales and see the beauty of the National Park for yourself, and find out what cycling here is all about.
You can also help Yorkshire's transport authorities by telling them if and how you travelled to watch Le Tour. They are interested in how you made your travel choices and what level of disruption you experienced on the roads and public transport services. This information is very important as it will help them to manage transport for major events in the future.
Get 'Appy' in the Three Peaks!
Enjoy the National Park...safely
It's fantastic to get out in the winter weather to enjoy the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, but make sure you stay safe.
