The scenic link, number 59, will run every Saturday from May 22.

It will be a double decker bus and will offer a number of great places to stop off along the way - from countryside walks to pubs (or a bit of both if you want to make a day of it).

The bus will follow the A59 and the company says the views will show "Yorkshire at its best".
