Places to visit & see along the route


Leeds »

Leeds is a powerhouse of a shopping destination, even more so with the brand spanking new Victoria Gate shopping centre and to-die-for John Lewis. It’s a city that says style.

With posh Harvey Nicks nearby, the fabulously sprawling undercover market right next to the bus station, and just about every high street name you could imagine, not to mention a world-class art gallery and some pretty grand Victorian buildings, you need to be there.

And eateries – phew! You’re spoilt for choice. Plus pubs, night spots, great music venues, Leeds has it all.


Tadcaster »

Famous for breweries, it has Samuel Smith (Yorkshire’s oldest) and John Smith. The Angel & White Horse pub next to Samuel Smith brewery has stables for the Shire Horse which still make makes deliveries five days a week to other local pubs.

The town is in fine fettle after recovering from the devastating floods in 2015.

Pickering »

It’s a lovely town packed with independent retailers selling everything from outdoor gear to local produce and crafts, and there are cafés galore. Cafés Cocoa is pretty popular on TripAdvisor, and of course Pickering is the start of the fabulous North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The Saxon church has world-famous 15th century wall paintings.


Whitby »

Even getting to Whitby is amazing, with an up hill and down dale spectacular ride across the roof of the heather-hazed North Yorkshire Moors, and at the end an attractive, colourful town that huddles round a picturesque harbour, from where boats still go out to fish.

The jagged ruins of the Abbey rise above the town up on the cliff and there are steep steps up to reach it, but it’s well worth the climb. There’s plenty more to this town loved by Goths, with some very individualistic shops, good cafés and restaurants.

Arriva buses leave from here for Robin Hood’s Bay (route X93) in one direction or Staithes (route X4) in the other.
