Journey to Leeds where you will be staying at the four star Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa. The walled city of York is a historic gem and perennial favourite. At its heart stands the breathtaking Gothic minster; truly a masterpiece of sculptured stone and stained glass windows. The City Walls form a walkway on both banks of the River Ouse while York Castle is an imposing tower. Roam the labyrinth of alleyways, take a boat trip or step back a thousand years at the Jorvik Viking Centre. Look forward to a day at Castle Howard, a stunning mansion used as a location for film and television dramas including Victoria, Death Comes To Pemberley and Brideshead Revisited. We also visit the renowned towns of Knaresborough and Harrogate.
You’ll never be short of things to do in this captivating city. Roam the labyrinth of alleyways, broaden your mind at one of the absorbing museums, take a boat trip or relax by the River Ouse.
