York - Harrogate - Otley - Ilkley - Bolton Abbey - Burnsall - Grassington Summer Saturdays This service has now finished for the 2022 season.
Some of the most wonderful countryside in England awaits you in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Beautiful riverbanks, woodlands, meadows rich in wildflowers, heather moorland, winding stone walls, farmhouses, waterfalls, delightful villages with welcoming cafes, pubs, shops and visitor centres - all waiting to be discovered.
DalesBus 74 runs to Ilkley, Bolton Abbey, Burnsall and the busy tourist village of Grassington, which features as Darrowby in Channel 5's remake of the classic TV series "All Creatures Great and Small". There’s a wide choice of easy strolls or more challenging riverside, moorland and woodland walks in the area. The bus route parallels the River Wharfe and the popular Dales Way footpath between Ilkley and Grassington, providing the opportunity to split the walk into easy sections.
Everyone is welcome, there’s no need to book for the bus - just make your way to the bus stop and pay the driver by cash or contactless payment.
