This pleasantly varied tour combines splendid sightseeing with a visit to a unique open air sculpture park. We explore the Peak District National Park, a sprawling conservation area of natural beauty, local wildlife and cultural heritage then discover the chocolate box Yorkshire Dales, home to verdant valleys and picture postcard market towns. We call at gems such as Buxton, where you’ll find Solomon’s Temple and the Grade I listed Crescent, as well as pretty Skipton, home to a well-preserved castle dating back over nine hundred years. Our final day out takes us to Yorkshire Sculpture Park – an open air art gallery.
Buxton & Bakewell
Soak up sensational scenery as we snake through the Peak District. We stop at beautiful Buxton where you can marvel at the town’s Grade I listed Crescent and view the Devonshire Dome – the largest unsupported dome in Europe. Hop on a Victorian tram-bus or visit Poole’s Cavern where you can witness evidence of prehistoric life. We continue to Bakewell, home to the eponymous tart and grand old houses.
Skipton & Grassington
We wind our way through the Yorkshire Dales to pretty Skipton. Here you might like to visit the ancient castle where you can explore every medieval corner from the Watch Tower to the Dungeon. Perhaps you’d rather treat yourself to a sail on the Leeds-Liverpool canal, stroll along the canal tow path or visit the Craven Museum & Gallery. Afterwards, we enjoy a stop in enchanting Grassington, home to quirky shops and friendly pubs.
