Welcome to Yorkshire: This magical little market town is England's highest, set 850 feet above sea level. Hawes was first recorded as a marketplace in 1307 & the lively Tuesday market still entices shoppers in. Home to the world famous Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese & set amidst breath-taking scenery, it's no surprise Hawes is one of the honeypot tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

HAWES

HAWES is the Upper Dales capital, centrally located within the National Park in an idyllic landscape, & accessible via the M6 or the A1 to the east. It is still very much a working town with a farmers mart & The Wensleydale Creamery. Nearby is Hardraw Force waterfall - one of the highest in England at over 100 feet. The Kevin Costner 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves' was filmed here & Artist JMW Turner visited in 1816. 'Hawes' translates as a 'pass between mountains' - the stunning high grounds of Fleet Moss & Buttertubs & is at the centre of an outstanding area for cycling & walking - The Pennine Way runs through the town. The NEW A1(M) creates a continuous motorway from London to just north of Scotch corner for the very first time. Central London 250 miles, Edinburgh 160, Newcastle upon Tyne 72, York about 64 miles & Manchester about 2 hour s drive.

RIGHT PLACE - RIGHT TIME

The town is THE tourist attraction of the Yorkshire Dales National Park - an absolute tourist magnet. Anecdotal evidence suggests that Hawes (& the immediate surroundings) attracts some 500,000 visitors a year or over 1350 per day.

The Yorkshire Dales punch well above their weight with a population of about 24,000 (28 per square mile) & 9.5 million Visitors a year, spending £693 million (2017) - National Park facts & figures.

NATIONAL PARK S HELP

In December 2019 it was announced that a new Local Plan will lead & promote development across the whole Park from 2023 to 2040. THE YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK MANAGEMENT PLAN is the single most important document for the Yorkshire Dales National Park & sets out the vision & ambitions for the future of the area.

2 key objectives are:

To further Improve the quality, variety & marketing of the tourism offer to encourage more overnight stays & more visitors in the quieter months, so that the value of tourism grows by at least 5% in real terms by 2024. &,

To develop & promote new events, festivals & attractions based on the National Park s special qualities & local distinctiveness, so that at least 10% of visitors each year are coming for the first time. www.yorkshiredalesmanagementplan.org.uk

NB 1: Tourism in the National Park was worth £693 million in 2017 & grew in 2018 to £753 million, an increase of 4.5% in real terms.
