Known as ‘The Great Yorkshire Forest’, Dalby packs a lot of surprises into its wooded hills, valleys and moorland areas. It is home to England's largest mountain-bike trail centre: there are 55 miles (86 km) of cycling trails to explore in the forest, with gentle rides and challenging terrain offering something to suit all levels.

Looking skywards, adventure park Go Ape has an aerial ropes course and hilltop-to-hilltop zip wiring, while forest-track Segway tours offer another unique way to see this southern section of the North York Moors National Park. And by night Dalby is a Dark Sky Discovery Site, making it one of the best places in the UK for gazing at the Milky Way.

Events and activities run year-round, including ‘Forest Live’ concerts, where big-name musicians entertain crowds amid the trees.

Dalby Forest is 35 miles (56 km) from York, which is 2 hours from London by train.
