holiday and travel guide to the UK

Hawes, in Upper Wensleydale, popular in summer with walkers and visitors driving through the Dales, almost the main centre in the Dales themselves.

It's still a market town, the market is on Tuesdays, with local manufacturing companies producing traditional cheese and carrying on the local ropemaking tradition.

There is a National Park Visitor Centre here, which can help with walks and information.
