By car

By train

We are approximately a twenty minute walk from Settle Station and approximately a 25-minute walk from Giggleswick Station. Whilst Settle Station sits on the line between Leeds and Carlisle, Giggleswick Station can only be reached via the line that operates between Leeds and Morecambe. Connections from these stations run to destinations across the UK.

By bus

Kirkby Lonsdale Coaches operates the 580 service between Skipton and Settle, and a service between Kirby Lonsdale and Settle, known as the 581. The latter also stops in Giggleswick.

There’s also the number 11 North Yorkshire County Council service, which stops in Settle as part of its route between Horton-in-Ribblesdale and Tosside. North Yorkshire County Council also runs most of the connections from Skipton.

All of the above services stop at Settle Market Place, and we are approximately a twenty minute walk from here. The 581 Giggleswick stop is on Station Road, but it’s worth noting that this stop is further from the theatre than Settle Market Place.

If you’re coming from further afield, National Express operate a Skipton to London service, which runs twice a day and goes via Leeds.
