Itinerary

Description

Dear reader, Lady Whistledown requests your presence on this delightful break, set to be the diamond of your holiday season! Join us as we discover magnificent Castle Howard, which provided the exterior for Clyvedone Castle; the marital home of the Duke and Duchess of Hastings in Bridgerton. Follow in the newlywed’s footsteps and admire stunning house and look out for other recognisable spots from the hit Netflix series, from the Temple of the Four Winds to the opulent rooms used to film various ballroom scenes. We also explore two of Yorkshire’s other highlights, the picturesque town of Harrogate and the historic city of York – it would be scandalous to miss out! 

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to our hotel, arriving in time for dinner and the first of two nights’ stay.

Day 2

Our day begins with a visit to Castle Howard for a self-guided tour. Designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, the 18th-century Castle Howard provided the backdrop for various scenes in Bridgerton and has twice appeared as Brideshead in film and TV adaptations of Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel. The seat of the Howard family for over 300 years, this stately home contains wonderful interiors, world-renowned collections of art, porcelain and furniture. Outside, the beautiful grounds feature lakes and waterways, a walled garden, and eye-catching temples and monuments. Afterwards, we visit the elegant Victorian spa town of Harrogate in the heart of scenic Yorkshire. Notable sights include the Royal Pump Room, the Grade II listed Royal Hall and the attractive Montpellier Quarter with its pedestrianised streets lined with 19th-century buildings. Later we return to the hotel for dinner and our second night’s stay.

 

Day 3

We head to the lovely city of York for time at leisure. Don’t miss the glorious York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe with world-famous stained glass windows. Other highlights include the narrow cobbled streets of the ‘Shambles’ where the buildings date back to medieval times, the Jorvik Centre which tells the story of York’s Viking heritage, and the ancient walls surrounding the city. The famous Betty’s tea rooms are also worth a visit after all that exploring. We rejoin the coach in the afternoon for the journey home.
