Nidderdale Greenway and Nidd Gorge

We absolutely love the Nidderdale Greenway walk here at Harrogate Mumbler.  It’s a great one for all the family, including the dog. It’s part of an old railway line and the main paths are suitable for bikes, prams and wheelchairs (don’t follow the woodland route if you’ve got wheels, as there are steps back up. It can be steep in places, paths may include steps and boardwalks and it can be slippery in wet weather). The main Nidderdale Greenway runs from Harrogate to Ripley and takes in some spectacular views of Nidd Gorge along the way.

The Nidd Gorge is a magical place where children can spot otters, kingfishers, herons, mallards and many other birds. You might even see the lesser spotted bear from Peru! The Paddington 2 movie was shot in Nidd Gorge, which the Nidderdale Greenway crosses on a viaduct. The Nidd Gorge woodland spans over 100 acres, divided in two by the river Nidd running through the gorge. All in all, there are plenty of different routes and walks to take here.
