You may even go around the grounds of a magnificent mansion. Across the region, there's something for everyone, so have a look and make the most of the beautiful weather.

HEBDEN BRIDGE

If the twisting streets of Hebden Bridge appear familiar, it's because this eccentric and charming town has attracted the attention of many a television and film director, pushing it to stardom. And with good reason: it's easy to see why. Hebden Bridge, in the Upper Calder Valley, is known for its creative culture, intriguing history, and dedicated inhabitants who have played a key role in its progress. There's much to do, from walking along the lovely Rochdale Canal to visiting arty stores and cafés.


Heptonstall is one of the most historic communities in the Pennines, perched hundreds of feet above Hebden Bridge. This historical weavers' community has a lot to offer.

ROBIN HOODS BAY

The Yorkshire Coastline's Robin Hood's Bay is a genuine beauty. A community of small picturesque homes spills straight down to the edge of the sea, surrounded by brooding cliffs. This charming spot is ideal for a romantic break, where you can marvel at the village's unique architecture and learn about the bay's mysterious smugglers' secrets.
