The highlights of beautiful Yorkshire await on this enchanting getaway. Come and step back in time in historic York, where the half-timbered buildings, cobbled streets and warm festive glow resemble a charming snowglobe scene! We also head to lovely Skipton, one of the prettiest towns in the region which is home to a remarkably well-preserved castle.

Itinerary (Coach)

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel to our hotel in time to enjoy dinner.

Day 2

We head to the lovely city of York to spend some time at leisure. Take the chance to wander the narrow cobbled streets with their distinctive overhanging buildings or discover the city’s beautiful Norman Minster, which boasts some of the finest stained-glass windows in the world. Alternatively, why not enjoy a stroll around the city walls that have stood since Roman times and wrap around the city for 2.5 miles or visit the famous Betty’s tea rooms? Tonight, we dine together at the hotel.

Day 3

En-route home we visit Skipton, known as ‘The Gateway to the Dales’. With its imposing Norman castle, revitalising riverside pathways and charming cobbled lanes lined with unique shops and cafés, there is plenty to see here. We rejoin the coach in the mid-afternoon for our journey home.
