Family Fun

The Yorkshire Dales provides plenty of opportunities for families to enjoy time together, from quiet and peacful gardens, through to the wild fun of the nearby Lightwater Valley theme park. The simplest form of family entertainment in the region is an open hike across the dales (as many a local youngster will know) but a whole range of activities can be enjoyed. When the weather is good horse-riding, climbing, cycling and visiting the many animal farms and centres are amongst the favourite family pursuits. If an indoor attraction is required butterfly sanctuaries, reptile houses and multi-floored children's play centres are always popular. Some of the local castles offers themed tours and interactive areas that are great for both young and old visitors.
