The first episode see Rose travel by train to Garsdale Head and community run bus to begin his visit of Wensleydale.

He visits the market town of Hawes, Aysgarth Falls and the medieval Bolton Castle, following the River Ure before finishing up in Leyburn at the eastern end of the dale.

He is then challenged by British racing cyclist Annie Simpson to the cycle up the Buttertubs Pass, which at its peak is 526m (1,726ft) tall. It was also part of the route for the Tour de France in 2014, which was the catalyst to the Tour de Yorkshire.

He then meets Tom Orde-Powlett at Bolton Castle whos home is an actual castle. Plus much more.

This all starts next Saturday on BBC Two at 7pm (Saturday 18th May).

Episodes two and three of The Yorkshire Dales will see Paul Rose explore Swaledale and Wharfedale.

It’s great that Yorkshire is being highlighted like this, its our base and we love living here. If the sun is shining check out these stunning waterfalls to visit while they are great to visit all year around, there is just something magically about visiting a waterfall when the sun is out.

There are plenty of reasons to visit Yorkshire, and we are hoping this TV show highlights some more of them.
