Grassington  is a small Wharfedale market town (though often referred to as a 'village') in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales in the English county of North Yorkshire (historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire). As the main residential and commercial centre in Upper Wharfedale, Grassington serves as one ideal base from which to explore the Dales. The cobbled main square and market place, together with the stone built houses of the town, make it a 'picture postcard' Dales destination.
Grassington is located 8 miles north of Skipton on the B6265. There are hourly buses from Skipton seven days a week (services 72 and 872), plus less frequent services from Buckden and Ilkley (daily), and York (Summer Sundays only). See  for bus service information.
As Grassington is a small town, you can walk everywhere.
