Leeds YorkshireLeeds lies in Yorkshire, the largest of all England's counties. In the northwest of the county lies the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a lovely patchwork of limestone hills, gentle valleys and the high peaks of Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough. The classical Yorkshire Dales spread to the north from the market and spa towns of Settle, Skipton, Ilkley and Harrogate in North Yorkshire, with most of the larger southern dales such as Ribblesdale, Malhamdale and Airedale, Wharfedale and Nidderdale running roughly parallel from north to south, and the more northerly dales including Wensleydale, Swaledale and Teesdale running generally from west to east. The North York Moors is the county's other national park, with bleak upland moors and a magnificent rugged coastline. To the southeast of the region lie the Yorkshire Wolds, formed from chalk hills that arc from the Humber estuary west of Kingston upon Hull up to the North Sea coast between Bridlington and Scarborough.
