Christmas Holiday Highlights
Festive Trips to The North York Moors > Scarborough > Traditional Christmas Lunch > Christmas Celebrations
Christmas holidays in Whitby offer lots of festive fun and fayre with two excursions included, the North York Moors and Scarborough. This Christmas Holiday stays in the Royal Hotel in Whitby with the most amazing views on all sides – of the beaches, harbour, old town, abbey ruins and headland. With cobbled streets, independent shops, the famous Captain Cook Memorial Museum, and sandy Blue Flag beach it’s not surprising that Whitby is regularly voted among Britain’s favourite seaside holidays.
Our Christmas programme has everything you need to enjoy a stress-free festive break. This means no planning and preparation, and no washing up. Just sit back and let Grand UK Holidays take care of everything.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Half Day: North York Moors
A coach excursion deep into the rolling moorlands of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. First we descend Sutton Bank to Thirsk where we visit the James Herriot Museum - synonymous with the Yorkshire Moors. In the afternoon we reach the market town of Pickering before completing our day in Goathland, in the heart of the Moors.
Half Day: Scarborough
In a setting unsurpassed for scenic beauty, Scarborough is bounded by the North York Moors and the rolling pastures of the Yorkshire Wolds. The town itself straddles two majestic bays and is dominated by an impressive headland, capped by a Norman castle. There are acres of spacious gardens, cliff top walks, a colourful working harbour, complex with frequent shows and concerts, a renowned theatre and lots of traditional seaside activities and entertainment.
