7. Yorkshire Dales National Park
This high-elevation park includes massive pastoral landscapes where sheep are raised for the thriving wool industry. Millions of tourists have visited since the area was designated a national park in 1954, taking in its rolling limestone moors, dales, and waterfalls. Several long-distance walking and cycling routes cross the area, and there are five visitor centres.
The parks many points of interest include Bolton Castle, the Yorkshire Three Peaks and the spectacular Aysgarth Falls, a triple waterfall enthused over by visitors including the Victorian art critic John Ruskin, J.M.W. Turner, and William Wordsworth.
