Perfect for sightseers and walkers, the Sunday-only service (featured on BBC 4’s All Aboard! The Country Bus) offers passengers travelling on the Northern 08:59 North-bound service from Leeds to Carlisle (via Settle) the opportunity to explore some of Yorkshires hidden towns and villages via a connecting service starting at Ribblehead station.

With no need to book tickets in advanced (simply turn up), the DalesBus 830 bus service offers a fantastic way to experience the beauty of the region, up close and personal.  The Northern DalesBus 830 operates on Sundays only until 17th October 2021.
