This small market town (market day on Tuesday) forms a natural gateway into Wensleydale.

A rather special feature is the village pump on Wycar Green with its stone shelter. There is a small village museum, and a good range of local shops, inns and cafés. The recently re-opened station on the Wensleydale Railway offers a regular service of trains to Leyburn and Redmire.

Thorp Perrow Arboretum (website opens in new window), three miles from Bedale, is one of Britain’s finest private collections of trees.
