sugesstions from lunatictravel.com in reply to Anthony S Australia
Hiya Great website at lunatic Travel - coming from Australia where the public transport system is no where near as good as the UK I can see you are spoilt for travel options. I really appreciated all the photos along the different routes and the mini map which I can't readily find anywhere else. I'm travelling to the UK this September and wanted to take a bus or train from Manchester to York along the best route through the Saddleworth Moors via Haworth to York. Wondered whether you have any suggestions for most scenic options? Thanks again
Hello re your journey Manchester to York via Haworth I have drawn a map to give you an idea of how you could make this journey by bus using different routes as there are many ways you could do this journey this map is far from definitave and there are other options
My recomended route to see the best scenery. Would be take the 17 bus Manchester to Rochdale.documented on my site click on the link below
Then take the 528 Rochdale to Halifax hourly service through the day
Then take a 592 or other bus from Halifax to Hebden Bridge there are frequent buses between the two places
Then the 500 to Haworth. This is not a frequent service you would need the timetable. The scenery is spectacular.
Then take A bus to keighley these are regular then take a 760 to Leeds this is a regular service through the day
Then take Yorkshire Coastliner to York this is documented on my site click on the link below
If however the 500 does not work for you with times after arriving in Halifax off the 528 take the 576 to Bradford this must be one of the most Spectacular urban journeys in the world sit on the top deck and admire the views you will see what I mean This is a frequent service.
Once in Bradford take the 662 tp Keighley this is a frequent service and the the bus to Haworth. Return to Keighley and then co tinue to Leeds on the 760
You may of course choose a different route Orange lines are routes not documented on my site green lines are and have the appropriate links
All the timetables of the orange routes can be download in pdf format from West Yorkshire Metros website the green routes timetables can be downloaded directly from my site. If you are using a mobile the West Yorkshire site will come up with the mobile version go to the desktop version the link is at the bottom of thier page and then go to bus timetables
