HIGHLIGHTS: Haworth, Walking tour of Saltaire, Skipton, Leeds & Liverpool Canal Cruise, Settle to Carlisle Railway

Once at the heart of the great cotton trade in the North of England, where the great factories of weavers clothed the nation, the rich past can still be seen in the buildings of Bradford and the surrounding Yorkshire villages. But most breathtaking is the scenery and on this tour you get to enjoy the fabric of the Yorkshire Dales by boat and rail, as well as discovering the wonderful story of one of Bradford’s most famous sons.

We enjoy a fascinating guided walking tour as we meander through history. We continue onwards towards Haworth where the Brontë sisters wrote many of their finest works at the Parsonage. We return by skirting Pendle Hill, home to the Pendle Witches, one of the most famed witch trials in English history.
