Heartbeat Country and Harry Potter Hikes

Come and explore the North York Moors around Goathland - home of the TV series 'Heartbeat' and used in the filming of Harry Potter. This guided hike is available for all ages but requires some basic fitness. 6, 8, 10 &12 mile distances are available. 

Starting at either Grosmont or Goathland, the walks take in the best of this breathtakingly beautiful part of the National Park. Follow the monks trod through protected woodland, visit the famous 'hole in the wall' Beck Hole Inn, follow the river to the magical Malleon Spout Waterfall. 

Take in the best views over Heartbeat Country, visit the steam train station where the Harry Potter scenes were filmed, then meander through some mythical landscape little known to the average hiker. Take a rest along the way while you listen to the stories, lore and legend particular to this area that will enrich your experience .

There are also stops for comfort breaks, purchased food and drink or brought picnics. The best coffee, cakes, ice cream, beer on tap, and other delights are available along the way.
