Goathland Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 80 photos
My first sight of Goathland was from a bus on my way to Whitby and I was hooked. What a gorgeous little village, in a dip in the moors, with sheep sleeping in the bus shelter! Little did I know that it was soon to become one of the most famous villages in Britain, thanks to the TV series "Heartbeat" about a 1950s police officer and his village. Nowadays just as famous as the TV village of "Aidensfield", it is flooded with tourists. Nevertheless, it is a village that has to be seen when crossing the North York Moors as it is simply wonderful, and I keep coming back now and then to soak up the atmosphere.
- Pros:scenic, fairly easy to reach
- Cons:tourists, crowds, altered to suit TV
- In a nutshell:Moorland TV star
These fellas slept by the village bus stop. The bus in question is the Yorkshire Coastliner which gets to Goathland... more travel advice
North York Moors Railway is well known amongst railway fans and nowadays also through featuring in the Harry Potter... more travel advice
