Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

A Ticket to Ride..

On the most scenic bus route in Britain to Whitby, on the top of a double-decker bus.

Leaving Thornton Dale

in the direction of Dalby Forest

Heading down Saltersgate Bank

with Fylingdales early warning system  in view, the blob on the horizon

towards the village of Goathland

or Aidensfield as lovers of Heartbeat may know it.

Or from the first Harry Potter film, the station for Hogwarts

oh may there be any wizards on board?

Beware of sheep on the road

past the village church

past the shops-Might that be Ventriss’s car?

and finally into Whitby

for some bracing sea air.

On the return journey we got to see the Hole of Horcum

hope you enjoyed the ride.

  1. We hired a holiday cottage, formerly part of a farm, a couple of times near Fylingdales. Once over Christmas where I developed proper flu on the first day and couldn’t even eat Christmas Day lunch. We had to cancel our visitors coming too. Then back for Valentines Day to make up for it!

  2. Loved it. Never been there but it’s somewhere I fancy. Thanks

  3. A very scenic journey. Just lovely. X

  4. It is such a beautiful part of the world x

  5. It’s certainly different scenery to most of the bus rides I used to take in London.

  6. My daughter and I have been watching the series ‘Escape to the Country’ on Netflix so we can see that kind of scenery. We lust after it. Your photos make me do the same thing. I would love to travel there.Just gorgeous!

  7. So very green, and those rolling hills are really beautiful. Thanks for taking us with!

  8. Lovely ride! So pretty!
