Buses in the Ilkley area will run a Sunday service on each of the three bank holidays in May, that’s Monday 1st May, Monday 8th May and Monday 29th May.
This includes the Summer Sunday DalesBus services from Ilkley to Upper Wharfedale and Wensleydale, which have been improved for summer 2023. DalesBus services 875 and 876 run to Cracoe, Grassington, Kettlewell, Aysgarth and Hawes every Sunday and Bank Holiday, leaving Ilkley Bus Station at 1015 and 1110. Both services are run by double-decker buses to provide more space and great views of the Yorkshire Dales.
