About this book

The Yorkshire Dales is one of the best loved and most visited National Parks in Britain. Yorkshire Dales - The Bradt Slow Travel Guide celebrates the beautiful limestone landscapes it contains, both above and below ground. It encourages visitors to stray away from the honey-pot venues, sampling wildlife in the hidden corners and meeting the true Dales-folk in sleepy villages off the beaten track.
