New scenic Sunday buses to Harrogate, Fountains Abbey, Richmond and plenty of places in between - starts 16 May
2 weeks ago
It's good news if weekend days exploring our wonderful county are right up your street.
From 16 May we'll be running a new route in partnership with DalesBus - 825 from York and Poppleton to Richmond, with a whole host of amazing destinations on the way including:
Knaresborough - a bustling town with plenty of outdoor space at the castle and along Waterside next to the River Nidd - where you can enjoy boating too - or head down to Mother Shiptons Cavem England's oldest visitor attraction.
Harrogate - an iconic Victorian town with beautiful floral displays, plenty to see and do for visitors of all ages, and the best selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants you could wish for to keep you fuelled along the way too.
Brimham Rocks - a National Trust site in beautiful Nidderale with an amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations, sculpted over centuries by ice, wind and rain.
Fountains Abbey - another National Trust treasure, and one of England's largest and best preserved Cistercian monasteries. Check their website to book ahead of your trip.
Masham - a vibrant and friendly market town with lovely Georgian buildings bordering the market square, and plenty of opportunity for a walk along the River Ure, or a coffee with friends in little local cafes.
Jervaulx Abbey - an enchanting and atmospheric ruin of a Cistercian Abbey
Leyburn - a proud Wensleydale town with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, unusual local shops, cafés and traditional pubs.
Richmond - an inspiring market town, with a Norman castle, views onto the River Swale and cobbled streets around the beautiful market square.
With a trip there and a trip back each Sunday, timed to give you a great day out at any destination along the route, there's something for everyone.
Only heading to Knaresborough or Harrogate? A return is just £6.
For all other destinations on the route, our Daytripper tickets are best value from York at £10 each for adults, and £19 for groups of up to five people. If you're catching one of our other buses around York before you get on the 825, you'll need a Daytripper Plus at £17.50 for adults and £30 for groups of up to 5 people.
If you're a concessionary pass holder, you won't be able to use your pass on the 825 but DalesBus have a Dales Privilege Rover ticket at £3 single and £5 return which you can take advantage of instead.
Thanks again to our friends at DalesBus for their support in introducing this new route - we look forward to seeing you on board!
