You are here
Goathland, North York Moors
Goathland is an incredible location, you could easily spend many hours here.
Primary pull is the fact that this was the filming location for the tv show "Heartbeat", many of the filming locations are preserved as such, you can visit the Aidensfield Arms, Scripps funeral services/garage, and the row of shops. Most of which are still marked as in the programme. It really is the village that time forgot and you could think you were back in the 60's.
This is one of the stations as well on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, so trains can be taken to Whitby and Pickering. The station itself is also preserved as it was in the 50's/60's and has lots of lovely opportunities for images.
Taking a drive up the steep hill out of the village and onto the moors themselves can give great views over the railway and moorland. Sheep graze locally and it is a lovely place with heather aplenty.
At the other end of the village is a large waterfall called Mallyon Spout, and the Mallyon spout hotel which is the start of the walk.
Lots of public conveniences and plenty of coffee shops and eateries.
