The perfect base for jaunts around the south Dales, Grassington’s handsome Georgian centre teems with walkers and visitors throughout the summer months, soaking up an atmosphere that – despite the odd touch of faux rusticity – is as attractive and traditional as you’ll find in these parts.

Highlight of the year is the Grassington Festival (, a two-week arts extravaganza held in June that attracts many big names in music, theatre and comedy, and also includes offbeat events like drystonewalling workshops.

The tourist office is beside the big car park on the edge of town.
