Situated on the Dales Way, Grassington is one of the best loved towns in the Yorkshire Dales thanks to its attractive location by the river Wharfe and beautiful Yorkshire backdrop.
The small market town of Grassington is the perfect location for a relaxing break, whether you want to enjoy great views, excellent walks or explore the local history and heritage. The bustling cobbled market square is fringed by shops offering local produce, speciality gifts and unique arts and crafts, making it the perfect place to eat, drink or catch your breath as you watch people strolling through the quaint, narrow streets.
Within the area are Bronze Age burial mounds, Celtic villages and farms, Roman settlements and medieval farmsteads, while a visit to the Upper Wharfedale Museum depicts the town's fascinating history.
For family days out there's Kilnsey Park, home to wildlife, nature trails, fly fishing lakes and around 20,000 trout! The nearby show caves of Stump Cross Caverns also offer underground adventures for big and little kids alike. If you prefer to explore above ground, Grassington is set amongst perfect walking country, with walks alongside gentle rivers and woodland strolls or challenging treks over open fells, past ancient priories, churches and beautiful countryside.
