Visit Bedale - - Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales

Discover Bedale

Within a stone’s throw of Wensleydale lies the Georgian market town of Bedale and a rich seam of history that stretches back to the Domesday Book. Surrounded by some of Yorkshire’s finest scenery, it is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the county.

Bedale’s Georgian heritage is reflected in the elegant buildings which line its historic market square and the 12th century Church of St Gregory is commonly named as one of Britain’s finest places of worship.

The town has unique shops, scenic walks and attractions for all the family. Bedale Museum is a definite highlight, housed in a magnificent 18th century building and standing proudly in parkland at the top of the High Street. The fascinating exhibits found within it depict the social history of Bedale and the surrounding villages.

If you want to explore some of the other local delights, you should take a ride on the Wensleydale Railway which winds its way through some of Yorkshire’s most breath-taking vistas. Nearby Thorp Perrow Arboretum also boasts one of the largest collections of shrubs and trees in the north of England. There you can explore acres of stunning woodland, run wild and free in the adventure play area, or meet exotic birds and animals.

Shop for delicious local cheeses in the cobbled square, explore the unique 12th century church or take in Yorkshire’s finest scenery from the winding Wensleydale railway.
