Peaks, canals, valleys and reservoirs - come to the Colne Valley and explore a wealth of outdoor delights and a rich industrial heritage. Former inns are award-winning restaurants; walking shoes, not clogs, tread the footpaths; and canal boats, once used to transport coal, carry holidayers along the longest, highest and deepest tunnel in Britain. Marsden is a haven for real ale; there’s the Riverhead Brewery Tap. A landscape steeped in history, from prehistoric man to historic trans-pennine transport routes. The Old Goods Yard exhibition brings the Moor to life for you – follow a 4, 8 or 10 mile heritage trail to see the key sites. Visit Pule Hill for magnificent 360 degree views; Wessenden Valley for spectacular sunsets; and the scheduled ancient monument Eastergate Bridge which dates back to the 17th century.

'The Dark Peak' doesn’t sound like the most welcoming of places for walkers, and cyclists, we promise it’s well worth the visit. There are reports of ghost planes and a magical vista around West Nab on the remote Meltham Moor – can you find the remains of the US B-17 ‘Flying Fortress’ which crashed in 1945? Wander alongside the water's edge of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and retrace ancient packhorse trails, to Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Centre - the longest, highest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain.

Haworth is the epitome of Emily Brontë's legendary Wuthering Heights. There's an enchanting mystique to the wild and rugged moors that surround this beautiful village - you can practically hear the echoes of Catherine and Heathcliffe around every cobbled and heather strewn corner. Prepare to fall in love with Haworth and its living, breathing past. Haworth's heart is its stunning Main Street. In summer it's a buzzing hive of activity with shops, crafts and tea rooms, and magnificent moorland views that compel visitors to pause for a photo opportunity practically every other step. During the winter months the wonderful rolling mists cloak the landscape, making easy to lose yourself in the famous Brontë Parsonage and immerse yourself in the history of its historic graveyard. As well as some spectacular walking trails out to ruined farmhouses and waterfalls, Haworth boasts a fabulous old railway station. Stand on the bridge and watch the vintage steam trains puff their way in and out of the valley, or jump aboard and imagine you're in The Railway Children as you travel to the Edwardian Oakworth station - the location for the famous 1970s film. Boots and wellies to the ready, it's always the perfect day to explore the beautiful South Pennine moorland around Haworth. Follow the path beside the parsonage and you'll be out the wilds in minutes, climbing up and out of the village and into a world of labyrinthine trails. Spot the signs to Top Withins - the inspiration for Earnshaw's house in Wuthering Heights - and make tracks to the beautiful Brontë Falls. Of course there's more to Brontë Country than just Brontë. For a fascinating day of history and curiosities visit Cliffe Castle Museum, the once spectacular mansion of local Victorian millionaire H I Butterfield. The house is now a large museum and is filled with an array of glittering minerals, rocks and even a 2m long fossil newt. Don't miss the William Morris stained glass, original chandeliers and old toys.

Wander the creative, bohemian streets of Hebden Bridge, and you can feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the town around the 70s and 80s.

Wander the creative, bohemian streets of Hebden Bridge, and you can feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the town around the 70s and 80s. From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafés and charming picture houses, the town is justifiably proud of its artistic identity. Walk along the canal is relaxing away from the bustle in the town centre.
Picturesque vales, secluded woods and vibrant towns and cities, the vivid, varied landscapes of Wakefield have inspired artists for centuries. The birthplace of world-renowned sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth is home to a thriving artist community today. Be wowed at multi-award-winning venues Yorkshire Sculpture Park and The Hepworth Wakefield as you discover magnificent works of art, and use their settings as space for personal reflection. The Wakefield district has a history stretching back thousands of years. From the Roman settlement of Lagentium - present-day Castleford - to the story of medieval might at Pontefract Castle, the Palladian grandeur of National Trust Nostell, the world’s first nature reserve (thanks to Victorian conservationist Charles Waterton) at Anglers Country Park and Haw Park Woods and above all, coal mining. The toil for “coyl” is in the very fabric of the district. Come and experience the fascinating stories of the work which became a way of life at The National Coal Mining Museum. But that’s not the only legacy of the many mines across the district. Spend a long, lazy day at RSPB Fairburn Ings or Pugneys Country Park and experience the beauty of these man-made lakes, carved out of the earth by local mining activity and now home to myriad plants, insects and birds. Wakefield loves good food. Whether you’re after afternoon tea in cosy cafes, exciting fusion and innovative city center cuisine, or the wholesome flavours of field to fork, we’ve got it in spades. The city also hosts the legendary Rhubarb Festival each February. A tribute to Wakefield’s history in the Rhubarb Triangle, it’s packed full of delicious local produce, cooking workshops and demos, as well as a full programme of live entertainment. Beer lovers rejoice: we’re proud to have a commitment to real ale, with small, local breweries producing show-stopping flavours to suit every palate. And there’s so much more, too. Defying gravity or whizzing down real snow slopes at Xscape. Taking in the panto in the splendid surrounds of Theatre Royal Wakefield . Exploring the nature trail at Newmillerdam Country Park and so much more.

The exact origins of this market town of ancient walkways, cobbled alleys and secret passageways are shrouded in mystery. But one thing's for sure, Knaresborough has carved out a real character for itself with a Tudor prophetess, once royal castle, magnificent viaduct and breathtaking countryside views.

Sheffield is quite simply alive with possibilities, making it an ideal destination for a day trip, weekend break or longer stay. Rising from industrial roots is a city with an ever growing passion for music and sport, so it's no wonder the sound of laughter and fun sings through its bustling streets. And as the greenest city in Europe, with the magnificent Peak District on its doorstep, there really is something for everyone. A day getting up close and personal with nature in the Winter Gardens, Sheffield Botanical Gardens and Peace Gardens gives you a great excuse to relax. The Winter Garden alone has over 2,500 plants from around the world and this giant temperate glasshouse is large enough to house 5,000 domestic greenhouses! With so many sights and sounds on offer, visitors young and old will be delighted in equal measure. Whether you're in the mood to pray, ponder or gain a new perspective, the doors are always open at the magnificent Sheffield Cathedral. And when you've feasted on its Norman stone and Tudor monuments, be swept onwards towards the city's many other historical treasures. There's also Kelham Island Museum, which showcases Sheffield’s industrial story, from early industrialisation to modern times where ‘Made in Sheffield’ remains a mark of quality known worldwide. You can also catch a unique glimpse of life at home and at work at a rural scythe and steelworks dating back to the 18th century with a trip to Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet. Little explorers can get hands on Up for an afternoon of discovery and adventure? Then make a beeline for Weston Park - it's no ordinary museum. This is an interactive experience that brings history to life. From Egyptian mummies to a traditional butchers shop to living ants and bees, the five family trails lead you on a weird and wonderful journey that starts millions of years ago and ends in the present day. Alternatively get fired up at the National Emergency Services Museum and meet some of the rarest emergency service vehicles around.
