Opened in 1997, this new National Park Centre provides a gateway to the North York Moors, welcoming around 130,000 visitors each year. It provides opportunities for people to gain a greater understanding of the North York Moors through its successful hands-on Window on the Park exhibition, a well stocked bookshop and countryside trails.

A series of special events take place throughout the year: temporary art and craft exhibitions and demonstrations, children's activities, and discovery walks with National Park Rangers and specialist Park staff. Situated near the edge of the Whitestonecliffe escarpment, there are a number of excellent short walks from the Centre, with spectacular views over the Vale of York to the Pennines.

Enjoy delicious food and drink at the tearooms or browse quality gifts and souvenirs in the shop.

With your appetite whetted you’ll find plenty to occupy you in this stunning corner of the National Park.
