Itinerary

Description

Situated on Yorkshire’s coast between two large bays, Scarborough styles itself as the country’s oldest seaside resort and has been welcoming visitors for nearly 400 years. As well as discovering some of the lovely resorts scattered along the spectacular coastline, we also enjoy a delightful heritage train journey, taking us back to a golden era of quaint rural stations, wood-panelled carriages and a slower pace of life.

Coach Itinerary

North Yorkshire Moors Railway & Whitby (full day)
We begin our day with a nostalgic journey on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, travelling through peaceful countryside from Pickering to Goathland. This village, better known as ‘Aidensfield’ on the TV series Heartbeat, is a lovely place to spend some time.

We continue on to the charming coastal town of Whitby, famed for its connection to Bram Stoker’s Dracula and for its striking jet jewellery, popularised in Victorian times. Wander around the busy harbour before tackling the climb up to the atmospheric ruined abbey perched on the cliffs above the town. 

Bridlington & Filey (half day)
We head first to the seaside resort of Bridlington. There is plenty to see and do here with its sandy beaches, promenade and picturesque, bustling harbour as well as the Old Town, full of quaint shops and cafés. We then spend time in the quaint resort of Filey, full of olde-worlde charm and boasting a five mile stretch of sandy beach and some of the most spectacular sea views on the Yorkshire coast.


Optional Excursion
York - £10pp (full day)
Our optional excursion takes us to the historic city of York. Make time for 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 Jorvic 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.
