We depart and make our way travelling north arriving at the Gisborough Hall Hotel late afternoon where we enjoy 4 nights stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.
Our first visit today is to Preston Park and the Hall Museum. Take a walk back in time through the cobbled Victorian street and imagine life as it was in times past. At Preston Hall we join the ‘Teesside Princess’ and take a gentle cruise on the River Tees through beautiful countryside to the cobbled town of Yarm, famous for its location on the river and the awe-inspiring railway viaduct. In the afternoonwe drive through Bilsdale - "Little Switzerland", and past the Sun Inn, which has had the same landlord for 200 years! We then pass Rievaulx Abbey, and drop into Helmsley with its 12th century castle. On the way back to the hotel we journey over the spectacular Sutton Bank, giving you fantastic views of the moors and across the Vale of York.
Today we visit Thirsk, home of James Herriot, and a chance to take in the acclaimed World of James Herriot Centre. Afterwards we experience a piece of history and we ride on the ‘Wensleydale Railway’, newly opened after sleeping for over fifty years. Later we end the day with a visit to Richmond where you will find a castle, the tiny Georgian Theatre, The Green Howards Museum and theRichmondshire Museum, which houses the ‘set’ from "All Creatures Great & Small".
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. Whitby is a maritime town, fishing port and seafarer’s haven, bursting with character is unique. Wander the alleyways and narrow streets and perhaps climb the steps up to Whitby Abbey.
After breakfast we depart for home.
