Itinerary

Overview

Durham is steeped in a thousand years of history and brings the past to life with its distinctive collection of museums and historic houses. Its eleventh century cathedral features an eye-catching blend of Romanesque and Norman architecture and along with the ancient castle, was one of the first places in the world to be declared a World Heritage Site. A highlight will be our day at award winning Beamish Open Air Museum for a fascinating insight into how lives were lived in the 1900s with authentic attractions such as the town stables, a traditional pub and a replica garage with typical vehicles from the era. We also head to old world Whitby where you can follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook taking in sights such as the seventeenth century harbourside house where the great explorer came to serve his apprenticeship. This quaint seaside town is also home to the churchyard that inspired the famous novel, Dracula.

Your Excursions

Durham

Perhaps visit the Oriental Museum with its displays from the Far East or discover medieval Crook Hall where you’ll find a Jacobean drawing room, a maze and a silver garden. Don’t miss the World Heritage cathedral and castle.

Whitby

Must sees include the haunting remains of the abbey which, along with twelfth century St Mary’s Church, inspired Bram Stoker’s gothic tale of Dracula. Perhaps follow in the footsteps of the great explorer Captain Cook at his harbourside house.
