Updated Tier 2 Guidance For Visitors To The Yorkshire Dales

    Following the implementation of new Tier 2 local restrictions across North Yorkshire and Cumbria, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has updated its guidance for anyone planning to visit between now and Christmas.

    National Park Centres at Aysgarth Falls, Grassington, Hawes and Malham will re-open at weekends - in line with the Centres’ normal winter opening hours. The Dales Countryside Museum at Hawes will also re-open.

    David Butterworth, Chief Executive of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, said: “We would encourage anyone planning a visit to the National Park between now and Christmas to check how the Tier 2 local restrictions affect them, especially for anyone living in Tier 3, where travel outside their area should be avoided.

    Our website has been updated to reflect the new guidelines, and there’s lots of additional information for new and seasoned visitors on staying safe in the National Park during the winter months.

    “Finally, the safety of visitors and communities throughout the National Park remains our number one priority, so we would ask everyone to stick to the social distancing rules and to wear a face covering in local shops”.      

    The latest guidance can be viewed on the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority website.
