Located in West Yorkshire, Calderdale is the southernmost of the Yorkshire Dales and part of the beautiful South Pennines area of river valleys, moorland and hill country. Whilst not as well-known as its Northern neighbours, as it doesn’t fall within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Calderdale has a tremendous amount to offer you, time after time.

Ideally located off major routes, getting here couldn't be easier – you’ll be able to arrive relaxed and raring to go, whether travelling by road or rail.

If you’re arriving by coach as part of a group, you’ll need to know your drop off and coach parking locations.

When you’re here, the friendly and knowledgeable staff at our three Visitor Information Centres are ready with their expert local information to help you get the most from your stay.
