Plan A Wharfedale TourThis tour itinerary covers a total of 103 miles, using the medieval city of York as its starting point. Use it to plan:
- a short, overnight break in Yorkshire
- an extension to my suggested 5-Day Yorkshire City Gems itinerary
- a whirlwind day trip.
Day Trip or Overnight?Although you can cover this territory in a day, remember that country roads in the UK are usually slower than what you may be used to in North America and parts of Western Europe. Expect to spend at least twice as long covering distances as you might at home. You could spend most of your day in your car, with little time to take in the villages and sites on this itinerary.
With that in mind, I'd recommend at least an overnight stay in the popular village of Grassington
