Attractions & Where to Stay

Nidderdale Plus offices in Pateley Bridge are home to the Tourist Information Point for the whole of Nidderdale.  Please visit us for more information, we are always ready to help.

Nidderdale is an extremely rich place to visit. The market town of Pateley Bridge sits at the heart of Nidderdale and is a wonderful place to visit. One of its attractions is 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 the tiny King’s Court, full of small, independent shops and cafes.  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: www.nidderdale.co.uk

Walking & Cycling

Nidderdale offers a fantastic array of walks and cycle rides, with plenty of fine views and places for refreshments along the way. Pop into our office in Pateley Bridge where our team of staff and volunteers can give you more information and recommendations.

The Nidderdale Way The Nidderdale Way is a 53 mile (85 km) walk through the wonderful landscape of Nidderdale. It is traditionally walked in four stages, none of which is longer than 15 miles, so there is plenty of time to take in the many interesting features along the way, including Ripley Castle, Brimham Rocks and How Stean Gorge.  To find out more about it and download a ‘Walking Guide and Accommodation Directory’, click here http://uppernidderdale.org.uk/visit-nidderdale/nidderdale-way-guide/
