Fodor's Expert Review Grassington National Park Centre
This visitor center 10 miles north of Skipton has guidebooks, maps, and bus schedules to help you enjoy a day in Yorkshire Dales National Park. Grassington is deep in the dales on the tiny B6265, also known as the Grassington Road; buses travel here from nearby towns. A small stone village, it makes a good base for exploring Upper Wharfedale. The Dales Way footpath passes through the village, where there are stores, pubs, and cafés. In summer it becomes overwhelmed by day-trippers and hikers, but you can escape them on the many local walks.
