Things to see and do

This very special part of the Yorkshire Dales has been given national park status because of its beautiful countryside, amazing wildlife, cultural heritage, and the fantastic opportunities it offers for recreation, and to protect these special qualities for future generations.

So, as you can imagine, there is lots to see and do, from spotting red squirrels in Snaizeholme and walking along the unique limestone pavement at the top of the 80 metre high Malham Cove to learning about the generations of people who made the Dales home at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes.

It's a special place to visit and you don't want to miss a thing!
