Tourism business support

The Landscape Partnership worked alongside local tourism businesses to develop tourism in Upper Nidderdale that will help visitors get out and explore the area’s landscape. Following a series of workshop discussions with businesses, three strands of work were agreed:

  • Walking routes – a selection of new walking routes that show off the special qualities of Upper Nidderdale
  • Dark skies – taking advantage of the low levels of light pollution in Upper Nidderdale for visitors to experience the magic of star gazing
  •  Nidderdale Way guide – an updated online guide to the long distance trail, featuring accommodation providers and things to do along the route

Dark skies business development grants

Tourism businesses operating in the Upper Nidderdale were able to apply for funding towards the purchase of equipment for dark skies tourism.

Low resolution versions are available to view below – if you are an Upper Nidderdale business and are interested in making use of these images, contact and someone will send you the full images.
