Discover The Yorkshire Dales United Kingdom

The breathtaking scenery at the Yorkshire Dales National Park makes it well worth the 4 ½ hour drive from the Big Smoke. Then again, why drive when you can hop the route of the famous LNER's Flying Scotsman from Kings Cross?

Whereas the variety of festivals and markets are bound to keep you occupied, it's well worth donning a pair of walking boots and exploring the natural surroundings. Just make sure that you take an up-to-date map, as walking routes are subject to change.

For a short or long stay, it's worth renting a railway cottage - the ones which skirt the stations at Garsdale and Thornton-le-Dale are particularly charming and good value for money.
