London - Wakefield - Nurseborough - Harrogate

Travelling around Britain is most pleasant in summer or early autumn. The explanation for this (at least for me) is quite simple - July +10 degrees, rain and wind feel much more pleasant than, for example, November. Also, there's always a chance of sunshine in the sky by lunchtime, even if meteorologists haven't warned about it. But as we set off on our Yorkshire road trip, we grabbed all the waterproof gear we had at home just in case: umbrellas, raincoats, hats and rubber boots with warm fleece socks.

Day Itinerary

09:00

London

Open Details
We leave London in the morning for a busy day ahead. The first stop on the journey is the small town of Wakefield, 180 miles from the capital. Three and a half hours to get there passes quickly - while reading the curious signs (if you go right, you'll find one castle, if you turn left, you'll get to another one).

Wakefield

Open Details
To be honest, Wakefield is not the most interesting or beautiful town in Britain. It was once an active producer of wool and cattle, but after coal deposits were discovered in the vicinity, most of Wakefield's residents went to work in the mines. In a very short time they became major "employers" and operated until 1982.
