In this section we try to give a selection of things to see and places to visit around Middleham

The Yorkshire Dales has so much to offer its visitors - from its picturesque villages and market towns; the rivers and waterfalls; the castles and ruined abbeys; cathedral towns such as Ripon and York to vibrant and cosmopolitan towns such as Harrogate and Ilkley. This is not only an area of great beauty, but also one of great variety, and consequently each of the Yorkshire Dales has it's own unique character.

Perhaps the last word should go to James Herriot; the vet made famous by his book - and later the television series, All Creatures Great And Small. He declared that Coverdale with its 'stark beauty' was his favourite of all the Dales, and he described unique and historic Middleham as 'The jewel of the whole Dale'. surely the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful area.
