Explore the incredible Yorkshire Dales on this full day tour from York. 

Leaving York in the morning we head to the Yorkshire Dales national park, well known for its breautiful rolling hills and lazy rivers which flow down the dales (or valleys).

First stop will be for a morning coffee break in the market town of Masham, were you can enjoy the town for about 40 minutes. 

Onwards we travel through the gently sloping Dales towards Castle Bolton, where you will see some of the best scenery Yorkshire has to offer.

Castle Bolton is one of the country’s best preserved medieval castles, Bolton was originally built, by Sir Richard Le Scrope, to rival the finest and most luxurious homes in the land. Completed in 1399, its scars bear testament to over 600 years of fascinating history including involvement in the Pilgrimage of Grace, Mary Queen of Scot’s imprisonment and a Civil War siege. 

Afterwards we continue on our journey through the stunning landscapes of Yorkshire traveling towards Aysgarth Falls.

Here you will have the chance to view the famous waterfalls of the River Ure, which drops over three major falls in less that one mile. An amazingly scenic stop, the falls are a showcase of the beauty of nature and were also the settling for a famous scene in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.

For lunch we head to the charming market-town of Hawes. Nestled in Upper Wensleydale in North Yorkshire this beautiful place is surrounded on all sides with scenery the Yorkshire Dales is famous for. It is simple beautiful.

Hawes is also home to the Wensleydale Creamery, famous for its array of cheeses which are much loved by fictional, animated characters, Wallace and Grommit. Explore the creamery and have a taste of the real Dales in their sample room. There is plenty of time to shop for your favourite cheeses and marvel at the beautiful surroundings the creamery sits within.
