Essential information

Planning a trip to the Yorkshire Dales National Park? Find out where to stay, what to do and how to get here by bus, train or car.

Find local weather forecasts and grab a map of the area. Get advice on bringing your dog, where to pick up Wi-Fi and information on the all important toilets and car parks. When you arrive, pop in to a National Park Visitor Centre.

We even have electric vehicle charging points at all of our car parks!

Or maybe you want to come on a guided minibus tour or the novel experience of the Dales roads from a motorbike – if so have a look at tours and excursions.

You can also download the official smartphone app for the National Park or our special app for people planning to do the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

If you have mobility difficulties then there is lots of advice on our access for all pages, including miles without stiles routes.

Or you want to find a short walk or a suggested cycle ride, ideas to keep the kids happy or information on our major visitor attractions.

And remember to use your sat nav with caution!  Sat navs don’t always work in the Dales, so if you think you are being sent in the wrong direction, you probably are!
