Good evening TA-Yorkshire Dales,
Thinking of visiting the last week of May for about 5 days before I head to London. I have tons of questions so please bear with me. I live in the US and planning this as the last leg of my Rome-Prague-UK trip. I'm in my 30s and look forward to doing day hikes, and just the general touristy stuff. I will not be renting a car and will have a carry on luggage.
1. I'll be flying in one way from Prague. I've been checking Wiki page for Leeds airport and flights. Looks like Jet2.com has direct flights but I'm not sure of any hidden fees, but the rates seem the best (130 US$ minus any hidden/baggage fees). I tried KLM but my GOD it's expensive! Would it just make sense to fly to a more accessible London airport?
2. Either way, (Leeds or London), what's the town to travel to?
So these are things I'd like to do: take that Settle-Carlisle train. I'm really not particular from where to where I go, but just enough to, well, say I went on it!
I'd like to hike that 3 peaks. I heard it's a good day's hike but I'm concerned how I can get there at 545a'ish which is when most day hikers start it (without a car). Can I walk to it from the nearest town I base myself in?
Any other ideas?
