Great place to visit to see how the cheese is made, but most importantly to taste it and buy it. Shop also sells lots of interesting gifts and there is a lovely cafe to have lunch. We visited on a rainy day in February. Worth a visit anytime though if you like cheese!

£2.50 per adult at time of writing. The tour is very short - the museum is pretty good for a museum dedicated to cheese but the tour is a small storyboard with foggy observation windows of cheese production. A very well stocked shop, cheese shop with free tasting and plenty of cheese for sale and a great restaurant overlooking Hawes... More

We had 2 hours to spare on a wet day so we called in at the Wensleydale Creamery, an excellent choice. There is a large gift shop where we bought tickets for the museum and the cheese making demonstration. The museum was very interesting covering not only the history of cheese making but of the area. The demonstration of cheese... More

We visited the creamery on a very cold January's day but the venue was full of people of all ages. The viewing gallery was not as good as it might be and you have to be there early to see the whole process. However, the route to the gallery was dotted with things to do for children but what was...

Great attraction, especially with the newly added museum. It's super cheap and a good day out for all, surrounding by gorgeous scenery.

This is a wonderful place. In fact it's the best place in England for people who love real cheese. The cafe provided an excellent meal. The only complaint was that we were provided with too much food. It's always a shame to send excellent food back to the kitchen just because you are full. Time to stock up on cheese... More

The price is cheap and what is there is interesting. I'm guessing the price will go up as further public spaces are created. We enjoyed learning, viewing then tasting the cheese! Good place to go if doing a few things in the area. The cafe was not good. My cake and hot choc were rubbish. The collection of staff stood... More

You have to visit this place if you are in this wonderful area. The short film sets you up for your tour round and from its information you can easily pick up the theme and soon be able to tie up the processes from one to the other. The history of the place is worth reading and hearing about as... More

The Wensleydale Creamery is well worth a visit. We really enjoyed the museum and the tour which takes about 30mins and cost £2 per person. There are some fun things to engage the kids as part of the tour. There is really good shop, fantastic cafe and free cheese tasting!
