On Our Routes

There are loads of things to see and do along our routes, as well as great places to eat and stay.


Bus Route - 30/30X

Thirsk is a traditional North Yorkshire Market town superbly positioned midway between the stunning North York Moors and the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. It is near to the medieval city of York, Harrogate, Ripon and our county town Northallerton and also the home of the The World of James Herriot.

Visitors can enjoy a number of flat short walks through the town and along the river or may prefer to travel a little further afield to explore the small pretty villages with their sandstone cottages. More strenuous walking can be found on the Hambleton Hills and the moorland tracks such as The Drove Road. The Swale Way long distance path passes through Thirsk connecting Boroughbridge and Kirby Stephen.
