Visitor Information



Nidderdale Limited was established in September 2015, a wholly-owned subsidiary company of the Nidderdale Plus Partnership, providing services for visitors to Nidderdale.

Nidderdale is an extremely rich place to visit. In Pateley Bridge, there’s the Old Workhouse, home to artists’ workshops and the Nidderdale Museum. There are the attractive independent shops down the High Street (including the Oldest Sweet Shop in the World) and in the tiny King’s Court – and across the river, past the Recreation ground with children’s play area and bandstand, there are more specialist shops at Bridgehousegate. Details of local businesses can be found at the Nidderdale Chamber of Trade website:

Stay overnight – or longer – to enjoy Nidderdale hospitality and spend time getting to know the hidden corners of this beautiful Yorkshire dale. We have a wealth of accommodation available including hotels and inns, campsites and caravan sites, bed and breakfasts, treehouses and shepherd’s huts.

Further afield, the upper dale offers tourist attractions such as the Studfold Experience, How Stean Gorge and Ramsgill Studio, with lots of places to eat and stay in the dale, from camping through to BnBs, self-catering and the Michelin starred Yorke Arms.

The Coldstones Cut is a must for all visitors, spectacular landscape art that overlooks the working quarry at the top of Greenhow Hill. Visit for further details and a fantastic gallery of images.

The Washburn Valley is an attractive area of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, dominated by the reservoirs of Fewston, Swinsty and Lindley. Visit the Washburn Heritage Centre to find out more about the local history, natural resources and community of this valley.

National Trust sites in the area are also a must: Brimham Rocks with amazing rock formations and views across Nidderdale – and Fountains Abbey, a world heritage site with abbey ruins and formal water gardens.

Nidderdale offers a fantastic array of walks and cycle rides, with plenty of fine views and places for refreshments along the way. Pop into the tourist information point (Station Square, King Street, Pateley Bridge HG3 5AT) for details and local recommendations. Or check for recommendations.
