Places to visit in the Yorkshire Dales and Harrogate

Looking for things to do in Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales? Walk among patchwork green valleys, craggy cliff faces, and farmland laced with limestone walls. It’s not tough to work out why the Yorkshire Dales feature so much on the big screen, appearing in Calendar Girls and the Harry Potter series. The hills are alive with the sound of wildlife – woodpeckers, cuckoos, and wood warblers. And as of late, they’ve been joined by the world’s biggest cycling event, the Tour de France. In August heather covers the moorland like a purple carpet. Follow the footsteps of Georgian gentry to spa towns like Harrogate to discover the pump rooms, manicured flower gardens, and quant tearooms.
