Team Building in the Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales boasts some of the most beautiful landscapes you can find anywhere in the British Isles. Being positioned near the great northern cities of Leeds, Bradford,  Manchester and Newcastle allows it to be at the heart of any team building programme, corporate awayday or corporate event that your organisation may wish Fire Events to run. The surrounding area is littered with beautiful market towns, historic houses and fabulous hotels that give the Yorkshire Dales the edge when it comes to the needs of your organisation’s corporate training and team building needs.

At Fire Events we will do everything we can to make your event less stressful and less work for you. Nothing is too much for us. The team building events that we have run around the Yorkshire Dales and the UK since our incorporation have included events as diverse as family fun days, team away days, icebreaker exercises, conference energisers through to large sponsored charity events.

Our base in Ilkley on the southern flanks of the Yorkshire Dales allows us to be centrally positioned for all locations around the UK.

About the Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park lies between the Lake District in the west and the North York Moors in the east; it was designated as a National Park in 1954.

Covering an area of approximately 1,769 km, the Yorkshire Dales National Park boasts some of the finest scenery in the North of England. The name ‘Dales’ comes from the Scandinavian ‘Thal’ and refers to valleys in the area made boggy by rivers flowing down from the Pennine Hills.

The distinctive natural features of the Yorkshire Dales were shaped by the melting of glacier ice, eroding the limestone and sandstone rocks some 300 million years ago. This created crags, hills, caves and expanses of fissured rock pavements, valleys and waterfalls. Lead mining began in Roman times and continued into the 19th century. Quarrying for the high quality limestone, the clearing of woodland and building of villages, farmsteads and low stone walls so distinctive of the area, are the man made features of the Dales.
