Arrived just in time to watch a cheese making demonstration that was very interesting and informative. Lots of free cheese samples in the cheese shop and a lovely gift shop. Well worth a visit for the price. If only we had had a fridge to store the cheese, we would definitely had purchased some.

We really enjoyed a trip to Wensleydale Creamery. The visit around the museum/factory is interesting and informative. There are also interactive areas for younger children. We paid an extra £1 to visit the cheese making demonstration talk. This was absolutely fantastic and even kept teenage boys engaged! Vanessa was so knowledgeable and really made her demonstration interesting for all ages.... More

When your friend says "do you want to spend the afternoon in Hawes", maybe get him to clarify before the 5 hour drive from London. Not going to lie, I thought he meant something completely different... Initial disappointment aside, we decided to make the most of it. In the end we loved it, we had a 'grate' day out. Car... More

Took 2 grandsons and there was plenty for them to be involved in. For adults the process and seeing the factory answers questions. As for the shop, living in Wensleydale I can get a range of cheeses (Sorry but I don't like typical Wensleydale) but here they have varieties I haven't found. Fountains Gold is available and lovely but the... More

What a great place to visit. We spent 2 hours there followed by a yummy cheese scone in the cafe and a lot of cheese tasting in the shop. A really fun morning.

The Wensleydale Creamery and Visitor Centre has expanded since our previous visit a few years ago. The Creamery tour is still available, although as we were on a coach trip we had a timetable to consider so we did not take the tour this time - I expect that it is just as good as on our previous visit. We... More

Visited during February half term and t was quite busy. I would think it gets very busy in the summer. However we had plenty of time to wander around this fascinating exhibit. There were things of interest for all ages but dont expect your toddler to show interest in the cheese making process, Have a picture with Wallace and Gromit... More

We really enjoyed going through the history of the Wensleydale Creamery. So interesting and love the Wallace and Grommit connection, lol. We had a lovely meal here, and were made welcome by really nice staff members. Would reccommend the tour followed by a visit to the licensed restaurant.
