When to Visit The Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales offers a huge landscape, meaning there is something for everyone here. It displays untouched countryside and natural beauty and combines this with quaint towns and villages, alongside centuries of history.

Generally, the climate is overcast and humid with average temperatures of around 20°C. If you aim to visit the Yorkshire Dales when the weather is at its best, July or August typically have warmer days and more sunshine.

The Yorkshire Dales in spring offers a mix of sunny days and cooler, wet weather. This is a great time to visit for those who plan on getting active as the milder temperatures create the perfect environment for hiking, biking or other activities. For those looking to challenge themselves, a trip to Ingleton to attempt the climb up Mount Ingleborough means spring is the perfect time to visit. Between March and May, the temperatures average around 8°C to 15°C, with the occasional rain shower.

Many describe the climate in the Yorkshire Dales in winter as ‘moody’ with the changing weather consisting of rain, snow and wild, windy days.

It is also an excellent time to visit quaint villages such as Settle, Hawes and Leyburn as they display cosy Christmas markets.

The highly protected area is home to plenty of wildlife for those on the lookout. Visitors to Malham should also be sure to make their way to Malham Cove – an intriguing natural limestone formation that has been created over millions of years.

Visit Bronte Country, the North York Moors for a day by the sea or swap the coast for the Lakes with a trip to Windermere.
