Happy Valley Tour

Rated 5 out of 5 based on 2 Feefo user ratings.

Step into the world of Happy Valley on our filming location walking tour and visit the picturesque town of Hebden Bridge and the village of Heptonstall. Nestled in the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Moors, you’ll learn about Hebden Bridge’s rich history and how it acted as the backdrop to this gritty and captivating British crime drama.  This guided, 2 ½ hour walking tour will take you on a journey through all 3 seasons of Happy Valley and you’ll get an insider’s view of the places where Catherine Cawood, played by Sarah Lancashire, fought crime, cared for her community and protected her family.

The tour starts at Hebden Bridge railway station which featured in series 3 of Happy Valley when Ryan bunked off school to see Tommy in court. As you walk through Hebden Bridge you’ll pass by the famous music venue, Trades Club, before making your way to some of the town’s independent shops. During the tour, you’ll be given the chance to visit the shop where Sarah Lancashire bought Happy Valley leaving presents for all the cast and crew at the end of series 3.

As you meander through the town, you will see the house that was used as Clare and Neil’s house in series 3, when Ryan stayed with them after visiting Tommy in prison. Then you’ll step back in time to see Ryan, played by Rhys Connah, as a young lad of 8 years old, all the way back in series 1 when we see him getting told off by his granny.

Strolling on through the town you will walk along the street where Catherine admits to Joyce that she doesn’t have an alibi for the murders in series 2. Other locations that feature in the tour include the café where Clare accidentally reveals a secret to Daniel in series 1, where Catherine and Joyce see a Michael Jackson tribute act and the moment when Ann Gallagher drunkenly compares Catherine to God!

Of course, no Happy Valley tour would be complete without a stop by Catherine Cawood’s house where you’ll see the window that Tommy broke in order to sneak into her home. You’ll hear about the scenes that were filmed here including the explosive finale to the series and how it was actually filmed. While you’re by Catherine’s home you’ll get a peak around the back where you’ll see the conservatory where Catherine slept during series 2 when Llinka stayed with Catherine’s neighbour Winnie. You’ll also get a chance to visit the spot where Tommy Lee Royce, played by James Norton, dumped the Knezevic’s car and where Clare, played by Siobhan Finneran, comforts Catherine after her showdown with her evil nemesis Tommy over her kitchen table.

Making your way onto another of Hepden Bridge’s bustling shopping streets, you’ll uncover the locations used for Neil’s corner shop, the place where Clare and Neil met and the spot where Tommy Lee Royce introduces himself to his son for the first time.

Part of the tour includes a short bus journey (not included in the price of the tour) from Hebden Bridge to Heptonstall village where the tour will end. But even the bus journey includes more Happy Valley locations as you will go to the same stop that Tommy used when arriving in Hebden Bridge in series 1.

Upon arriving in the beautiful village of Heptonstall, you will visit the graveyard where Catherine’s daughter, Becky is buried. While you are there you’ll have the chance to take in the tranquillity of your surroundings and see the ruins of St Thomas A’ Becket church, as seen in the show.

Throughout the tour, our knowledgeable and local guide will share fascinating stories and behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the making of Happy Valley as well as information about the actors and the production team.

Whether you’re a local or a first-time visitor to the Calder Valley, our Happy Valley tour promises to be a truly unforgettable experience that is not to be missed. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the beauty and magic of Yorkshire’s Happy Valley with you.
