This tour includes door-to-door collection service.

Day 1:

Morning collection from home to join our coach for a leisurely drive northwards to our hotel by late afternoon for a stay of 4 nights.


Day 2:

Today we visit Thirsk, home of James Herriot, before taking a ride on the Wensleydale Railway through some beautiful rural countryside, bringing back memories of yesteryear. We end the day with a visit to Richmond, with its castle and the Richmondshire Museum, which houses the ‘set’ from ‘All Creatures Great & Small’ (entrances not included).

Day 3:

Our first visit today is to Preston Park and Hall Museum. The attractive parkland surrounds the museum, and in the museum itself you will find a delightful collection of memorabilia from times gone by (entrance included). Take a walk back in time through the cobbled Victorian street and imagine life as it was in times past. Later we join the ’Teesside Princess’ for a gentle cruise on the River Tees through beautiful countryside to the cobbled town of Yarm.
This afternoon we travel through Bilsdale - ’Little Switzerland’, continuing past Rievaulx Abbey, Helmsley and on over the spectacular Sutton Bank, with
fantastic views of the moors and across the Vale of York.

B, D

Day 4:

After breakfast we travel over the moors, across Blakey Ridge, through picturesque Hutton-le-Hole to Pickering, where we join the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a steam train journey through rugged moorland to Whitby, passing through Goathland - ’Aidensfield’ in TV’s ’Heartbeat’ - on the way. We have time in Whitby to wander the little alleyways and narrow streets and perhaps climb the famous steps up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey. We depart Whitby late afternoon and return across the moors to our hotel.

Day 5:

Departing our hotel after breakfast, we commence our return journey to East Anglia where our door-to-door service will take you home.
