According to the Visit England website, “English Tourism Week is an annual week-long celebration of events showcasing the quality and vibrancy of our visitor experiences and the value our industry brings to our nation.” This year it runs from 5th – 13th March.
The visitor economy provides 2.6million jobs and is worth a staggering £106billion a year to England, so it’s most definitely something that we are truly passionate about!
Our Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre is based at Hawes, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park; an absolutely stunning area, with incredible views, walks, and of course, a whole range of fantastic local businesses and tourist attractions.
In addition to our popular Visitor Centre, the market town of Hawes hosts a local weekly Tuesday market. You’ll find independent pubs and cafes, accommodation providers, butchers, bakers, outdoor & gift shops… as well as many other attractions to explore, including the Dales Countryside Museum, Outhwaites Ropemakers, Gayle Mill, and much, much more!
It’s certainly an iconic Yorkshire Dales market town with a lot to offer.
Celebrate English Tourism Week with a visit to Hawes and enjoy all of this and more, with the beautiful backdrop of Wensleydale, one of the most English views around!
