I'm traveling from the U.S. to Harrogate next June for a graduation at Fountains Abbey. I'll be flying into London Heathrow and taking a train to Harrogate. What are my transportation options from Harrogate to Fountains Abbey (the graduation is on a weekday evening), or would staying in Leeds give me more choices for transportation? I appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks in advance!

HI guys! I'd like to ask if you lovely people out here know by any chance the best way from the nearest airport to knareborough, North Yorkshire?

What are the options for getting from York to Whitby??
Is there a bus or buses ??
Spending a few days in Whitby, England. I want an excellent restaurant for fine dining to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Love seafood, French Food and excllent service. Can you advise please?
We will be travelling to Great Britain this June. I had hoped to go to Stratford from York and stay a couple of days before continuing to Chipping Campden (where we are renting a cottage for a week). Then on the way back to London we would stop in Oxford for another couple of days.
The problem is that even though in terms of location this makes the most sense, I can't seem to find reasonable public transport from York to Stratford (13 hours and 2 stops!) whereas I can get to Oxford from York directly in just a little over 3 hours. Is there any more direct public transport from York to Stratford that I'm missing, or is backtracking the only way to make this work? (Renting a car is not an option.) Can anyone help? Thanks.
Hi, Can anyone give me information on the 5 day tour by Hotel Bus from York to Whitby? Am not sure that it is still operating. Tku in advance.
Ersh... There's so much transportation advice here and online, it's doing my head in. Most of them give advice to take busses to/from places that aren't even on normal maps!
Any advice on the best way (other than driving) to get from central Manchester to Hawes? Do I have to get a train up to Kendal and then somehow get east from there?
We're currently in York, until Friday. We'd like to walk a little in the Dales next weekend, but don't have a car. We can get to Skipton or Harrogate by train/bus, and then (I think) arrange to get to the Dales, but which town would be best? Or would anyone recommend Nother? We walked in the Cotswolds all last week. Love all the walking paths here.
I hope someone here can help me. In 1994 I spent my honeymoon in York. For our upcoming 20th anniversary I wanted to revisit it and ideally stay in the same place we originally did but am having a hard time locating the B&B/Hotel we stayed in. (I think it would have been classed as a B&B, but even that detail is hazy to me now!)
Here's what I remember about it:
Located outside the inner city walls, but within easy walking distance of them. (5/10 minutes max.)
A Victorian house with a lot of Victorian interior decorations, including a stuffed Owl in a glass jar in or near the reception desk
4-poster beds (At least in the room we had.)
It had a high-end restaurant with a prix fixe menu. Back in 1994 it was 25 pounds per person, no idea what it would be now.
Both self-service and full service at breakfast cooked to order
Of course it is possible it has either closed or changed hands/names since 1994, but if anyone knows York hotels well and can positively identify one way or another it I'd really appreciate it.
I'm considering one of those walks through the Yorkshire Dales. About 3 or 4 days--hopefully with 3-5 hours between each location. Here's the rub: I love nature, but need a destination as motivation. (Yep, love to walk, but aimless scenery walking doesn't do it for me.) I know there are lots of pretty villages all around (with pubs, which serve as a perfect motivation for my tastes), but there are so many different walks listed online I'm at a loss as to what to choose.
I'm currently looking at maybe purchasing a book called: "The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales: 76 miles, 6 days, 26 pubs..." and only doing a portion of it. Does anyone have any other reference material they know of similar to this one?
Y'all won't like this, but I think I might be doing it in November. There's something about the damp cold, the wet, the drizzling rain, and the mud, that appeals to me. Might not make for great photos, but that sort of fresh, cold air really helps clean the cobwebs from my soul.
How do i find my direction from Aberdeen airport to a nearest airport at York.
Please may i know the nearest airport to Shell center at York road, London.
Hi, I am staying with friends in York for 4 days. I would welcome advice on activities in the surrounding area, particularly hiking and cycling.
Thanks in advance
I am planning a trip to York, renting a house or apartment. I'd like to take the train to Durham, Leeds, or ??
Is it easy to get to those places by train and can anyone suggest any other place?
Also, any suggestions on finding an apartment to rent for a week?
is there a bus service running between whitby and scarborough?
So the family and I (all 6 of us!) have decided to visit York in September. Here's the thing - I need info on a good place to stay that is
-child friendly (ages ranging from preschooler to teenager!)
-close enough to exciting activities to keep everyone happy!
-retail therapy for me (the matriarch)
-pubs for the DH
Any personal experiences and advice are warmly welcomed.
We want to visit the North Yorkshire Moors to go hiking and are wondering when is the best time of the year for it? For us it would be the best in late March but we are thinking that the nature might not be that great that early during the year. An alternative would be in June. What do you think? When does the heather bloom, when do the trees get leaves? Would you recommend going in March?
Thanks a lot for the advise
My husband is considering a job in the North England area. We have a 5 year old and need to know good areas to begin our housing search (we will be renting at first) and which schools to look into in York. Also, is there an US expat group that I can contact there? There is a Women's American group in Surrey, I didn't know if a resource like this meets in York. Very excited about the possible move. We have heard amazing things about the area.
Thanks for the tips!
Hi all, I received a ton of responses (all good suggestions) on my question regarding buying a converter charger thingy for my ipod/cameras- thank you all! Now I am trying to find a hotel for 2 older British ladies and myself, who will be staying in York for 2 days. These are relatives of mine. I need a hotel with a good breakfast-no greasy fat laden stuff. I like a buffet with eggs, toast, cereal, etc. Anyone have any ideas for a place in the central area of things, with a great breakfast and not too pricey? Cheryl
Does anyone know the name of the Hotel next to Railway Station in York (hope there is only one station)
My daughter and I will have luggage and would like something handy as we will then be going on to London. We will not pre book from Australia as we want to be a bit free.
Or maybe another hotel suggestion. Have read members like Dean Court...is that close to rail?
Time of year...April...early May

I have to spend a couple of nights in Guisborough & wondered which of the following is the better option: The Fox Inn OR Three Fiddles Hotels.
Both are virtually the same price - but recommendations are always useful.
Thanks in advance for any information.
