DAY 1 - After joining your holiday coach, travel north towards Newark-on-Trent, a historic gem of a town boasting one of the finest Georgian market squares in the UK (market day on Friday). It is also home to the National Civil War Centre (admission not included), the remains of a dramatic riverside castle and some lovely independent shops and coffee shops. Continue north to arrive in Hull via the iconic Humber Bridge which was the world's longest single span bridge for 25 years when it opened in 1981.

DAY 2 - 3 At leisure with two included excursions.
With a free afternoon in Hull, why not take advantage of the city's many impressive museums including the Maritime Museum, Streetlife Museum and Wilberforce House, birthplace of the British politician and social reformer (admissions FOC). NB museums close between 16.00 - 16.30 with last entry 30 mins before. Hull's historic Fruit Market close to the marina is a modern, vibrant quarter with places to eat and shop all day. Or you could follow the Larkin Trail to follow in the footsteps of Britain's greatest port-war poet and a beloved 'son' of the city.
HALF DAY BEVERLEY
Head to East Riding's most attractive town, Beverley which is full of Georgian character, charming streets and courtyards. Enjoy an included guided visit to the landmark Gothic Beverley Minster famous for its 13th century stone carvings and stained glass.
YORKSHIRE WOLDS & COAST
A scenic drive takes you through the gently rolling chalk hills and rich farmland of the Yorkshire Wolds towards the coast and the classic seaside town of Filey with its miles of glorious golden beaches. Continue to bright and breezy Bridlington, whose Old Town is the 'star' of the 2016 Dad's Army film. And of course no visit to the Yorkshire Coast is complete with sampling the local fish and chips.
DAY 4 - It is farewell to Yorkshire this morning as you journey back south with a stop in the exquisite university town of Cambridge which just exudes history and tradition. Head back to interchange later on and then back to your home towns.Back to top
