Itinerary

The Shambles - VisitBritain/Britain on View

Day 1 Morning departure to Yorkshire and to the hotel for a four night stay.

Day 2 Travel to Masham, for a tour and tasting at the Black Sheep Brewery, only established in 1992, but already a brewing legend. This afternoon you will take a ride on the Wensleydale Railway, through unspoilt countryside between Leyburn and Leeming Bar. Finally visit the traditional market town of Thirsk, home to the famous vet and author James Herriot.

Day 3 A day in York with so much to do in this historic city with fascinating museums, river cruises, the Minster and The Shambles – or for the real enthusiast the National Railway Museum.

Day 4 All aboard for a wonderful train ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway through miles of beautiful national parkland scenery between Pickering and Grosmont. Then explore Whitby, a picturesque harbour town, with its famous clifftop abbey. The journey back is broken by a stop in Goathland, used as “Aidensfield” in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’.

Day 5 Breakfast, then commence the homeward journey.
