Visit the Dales


Towns and villages

Our stunning stone-built villages are great starting points for any visit. The larger settlements - such as Reeth, Hawes, Sedbergh and Grassington - all have places to stay, pubs, shops and car parks. Market towns at the edge of the Dales are also great places to visit such as Skipton, Settle, Ingleton, Leyburn, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kirkby Stephen and Richmond.

Eastern Dales towns and villages

The thriving towns of Pateley Bridge, Masham and Ripon are all worth a wander!

Northern Dales towns and villages

From a market day in Hawes to the cosy pubs of Reeth, the Northern Dales towns and villages all give a warm welcome.

Southern Dales towns and villages

Take in the peace and quiet of Clapham, the hustle and bustle of Settle or the iconic views from Ribblehead and Malham.

Western Dales towns and villages

Sedbergh is a book lover's paradise or savour the tranquillity of Garsdale and Dent.
