Guided Walking in Britain

South Yorkshire Dales 


The Yorkshire Dales are located in North-Central England not far from the Scottish border. The rugged Yorkshire Dales National Park is rich in wild-flowers and waterfalls and is excellent hiking country. We stay at lovely Malhamdale for a week of exploring this fabled region... the home of the Brontes and James Herriot. On our walks we visit the graceful ruins of Bolton Abbey; Studley Royal Estate and its water gardens. There is much history in the region. Step back in time at East Riddlesden Hall, built during the Civil War by a passionate Royalist, with its dramatic history and panoply of ghosts. Yorkshire is steeped in history and tradition with attractions like Skipton Castle, one of Britain’s best-preserved medieval castles.
