Yorkshire At Christmas
2018 - Dubrovnik - 5 Days (AUD0128)
With a population as big as Scotland's and an area half the size of Belgium, Yorkshire is almost a country in itself. It has its own flag, its own dialect and its own celebration, Yorkshire Day (1 August). While local folk are proud to be English, they're even prouder to be natives of 'God's Own County'. What makes Yorkshire so special? First, there's the landscape – with its brooding moors and green dales rolling down to a dramatic coastline. Yorkshire has some of Britain's finest scenery. Second, there's the sheer breadth of history – every facet of the British experience is represented here.
Yorkshire's most distinctive characteristics are the broad dialect and the breathtaking landscapes. It’s easy to be glib about Yorkshire – to outsiders it’s the archetypal “up North” with all the clichés that imply, from flat caps to grim factories. Many Yorkshire locals are happy to play up to these prejudices while nursing a secret conviction that there is no better place in the world to live. But Yorkshire's greatest appeal lies in its people. Industrious and opinionated, they have a wry wit and shrewd friendliness.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
