The Esk Valley has been made famous as the filming location for ITV's 'Heartbeat' programme. Just a few minutes drive from Glaisdale you'll find a selection of other beautiful villages located on the banks of the River Esk which flows 28 miles from its source in Westerdale before emerging at Whitby.
Villages such as Goathland, Egton, Danby, Lealholm and Castleton all offer a range of local amenities including comfortable and welcoming villages pubs and shops, and are the perfect places from which to begin a walk into the North Yorkshire Moors.
The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway passes through the village of Grosmont on its way between Pickering and Whitby so is a popular destination particularly through the summer months.
With spectacular views, picturesque villages and a wide choice of footpaths and trails to follow and enjoy, the Esk Valley is one of Yorkshire's most beautiful areas and certainly worth exploring whilst staying in the area.
The Whitby to Middlesbrough Railway travels the route of the Esk, with trains running several times a day. Why not make use of this service and enjoy a trip up the valley, a walk in the countryside and a meal in one of our cosy, country pubs? Or, stay on the train all the way to Middlesbrough and enjoy some of the city's attractions including MIMA, the modern art gallery.
