Hospitality and tourism businesses in and around the Yorkshire Dales National Park are being invited to pick up copies of the just-published free official guide to the Yorkshire Dales National Park – The Visitor 2018.
Packed with features and useful information, the 68-page magazine contains a huge events section and a centre-spread map.
The popular guide can be found at the National Park Centres in Aysgarth Falls, Grassington, Hawes, Malham and Reeth, or at Tourist Information Centres in and around the Park, such as in Kirkby Lonsdale, Kirkby Stephen, Richmond, Sedbergh and Settle.
The Visitor has been published since 1981 and now has an annual print run of 125,000 copies.
“If you run a B&B, café, attraction or activity centre, The Visitor is an ideal guide to put in the rack to help guests and customers get the most out of their visit,” said the magazine’s editor, YDNPA Communications Officer Sarah Nicholson.
“This year’s edition has features on caving, on the new ‘Swale Trail’ family-friendly mountain bike route and on the famous Malham Landscape Trail, which this month was voted into the top three of ITV’s Britain’s Favourite Walks. There is a bigger than ever events listing, as well as key information on what to see and do; how to get here and around; and where to eat and drink.
“Our job as a National Park Authority is to promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the area by the public – and The Visitor is one of the best ways we can do that.”
The magazine is distributed nationally and can be found as far afield as the American Embassy in London.
