Grassington Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 50 photos


A small town in picturesque Wharfedale, Yorkshire, England. First granted a charter and fair in 1282 that it continually ran until 1860 when lead mining took over the town bringing prosperity and in 1901 celebrated the opening of the Yorkshire Dales Railway to Threshfield bringing many new visitors to this limestone kingdom. Very much a market town ... Grassington boasts its shopping, cafes, restaurants, hotels, and giftshops. Also known as "Gurston" or "G-town" by the locals.
