We’ve put together a selection of the best views in Yorkshire Dales National Park, home to some of England’s prettiest landscapes
Having just moved to the area and started our exploration of the Yorkshire Dales in earnest, we thought it appropriate to share some of the wider scenery the Dales have to offer.
Yorkshire Dales National Park (YDNP) was designated in 1954 and extended by 24% in 2016 to cover 2,178 km2 in total. YDNP is famed for having some of the finest limestone landscapes in the UK with crags, pavements and caves set amid an expansive heather moorland of rolling hills and dramatic waterfalls, all criss-crossed with miles of dry stonewalls and picturesque villages.
The park attracts over 3.5 million visitors every year looking to explore the beautiful scenery be it by foot, cycle or kayak – to name just a few of the available options. With that in mind, we’ve put together a selection of the best views in the Yorkshire Dales.
