Grassington is the largest village in Wharfedale and has a cobbled square with picturesque historic streets and buildings. Nearby is the river wharfe where you can walk through ancient woodlands, past limestone crags to the high moorland fells and limestone pavements.
Grassington also boasts a fine selection of country pubs, tearooms and restaurants as well as a variety of shops. There is an annual Music and Arts festival at the end of June when many popular entertainers come to the town.
In September we have a 1940's weekend where the village steps back in time with Reinactors, Vintage stalls, Dancing and street entertainers and a Big Dance with a live band at the Town Hall. Sometimes there is a flyover with a Lancashire Bomber or a Spitfire!
At the end of the year Grassington goes Dickensian with The Dickensian Festival- with musicians, costume and street entertainers.
Grassington has a Lead mining and farming history and nearby Kilnsey hosts a large agricultural show at the end of August.
So whether you enjoy Walking, Fishing, Horse riding or site seeing Grassington offers visitors all this and more.
