Great Bus Journeys of the World: Ripon to Richmond
You can take a tour from Ripon bus station on one of these vintage buses, but there is really no need. Because the service bus to Richmond will give you all the scenery and interest you could want.
It takes you through Masham, with its Black Sheep and Theakston's breweries; through Middleham, whose castle was the childhood home of Richard III (of whom you may have read here); and through Leyburn, which has a station on the Wensleydale Railway.
All that and Walburn Hall too.
I want to go back to Ripon, not just because I so liked the place, but also to visit these attractions.
