Grassington is one of the most popular of Dales villages with a strong and thriving local community, but is also a hub for visitors to this spectacular part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with its magnificent Wharfedale scenery. Nine miles north of Skipton, Grassington has an excellent range of local and quality shops as well as a choice of well-patronised public houses and restaurants. The Town Hall provides a wide array of events throughout the year and plays host to the annual Grassington Arts Festival as well as the Dickensian Festival Weekends each November/December. Also in the village is a Primary School and Health Centre, with Upper Wharfedale Secondary School and Upper Wharfedale Rugby Union Club at Threshfield just a mile away.
