What do you mean by best? The quickest is by taking the A46, M69, M1 then the A1 and A64.

If you want a slower, more scenic route, go via the Peak District - Bakewell (try a Bakewell pudding), Buxton (spa town), Edale (good walking), Holmfirth (Last of the Summer Wine land) then back to the M1 etc.

I ate at Wagamama the last time I was in York which might not be what you are seeking - it’s a chain of Asian, mainly Japanese cuisine. Afternoon tea at Betty’s - you probably need to book. For something far less ostentatious, have lunch at the charity cafe in The Spurriergate Centre, housed in a former church.

@jennifer thank you very much. I will look into these alternative towns. Maybe a stop at Bakewell. Any recommendations on where to have a lunch and a pudding in Bakewell? Thanks!
