The town is full of historic buildings such as an 18th century leeches store and there is a wonderful 14th century market cross. There's plenty to keep you entertained in the town, from a local petting zoo, Big Sheep Little Cow, that children will love, the Bedale museum where you can find out more about the history of the area, as well as the beautiful Thorp Perrow Arboretum. For those looking to get outdoors, why not pay a visit to the Bedale Golf Club or Aerial Extreme Bedale?
