Leaving the local area this morning we travel to Esholt, the original 'Emmerdale village' used on the TV series between 1976 and 1998 until its popularity attracted so much interest that filming here became impossible. We'll make a stop at the famous 'Woolpack' pub where there'll be a chance to go inside and enjoy a drink (payable locally) before we continue to your hotel, arriving in good time for dinner.
After a buffet breakfast this morning, it's off to central Leeds for our visit to the Emmerdale Studio Experience. Enjoy this fascinating insight into one of Britain's most iconic TV shows, as your Emmerdale guide walks you through the secrets of past storylines as you discover the world of costumes and make-up; editing and lighting.
See interior sets such as Bernice's Salon and The Dingles' and don't miss the chance to experience what it's like to act out a scene, in Smithy Cottage! There'll be unique displays showcasing some of the show's props and memorabilia, and interactive elements will show you some of the techniques used to create the special effects in iconic scenes such as the helicopter crash that devastated Pete and Debbie's wedding, and the flooding of The Woolpack cellar where Chas, Debbie and Marlon finally managed to kill off the villain Cameron Murray.
After time for lunch (payable locally) we re-board the coach to head to 'Emmerdale Village - The Tour.' First broadcast in 1972, the production of Emmerdale moved to its current setting, a purpose-built set on the Harewood Estate in 1998, tucked away in the midst of country lanes. Today, you'll 'tread the tarmac' during a 90-minute fully guided walking tour with an Emmerdale expert who will really bring it to life. See where, and hear how, some of the most iconic and memorable moments from the series were filmed, with a chance to peek into the Vet's Surgery, Smithy Cottage and the Dingles' Garage, as well as the opportunity to walk through the Parish Church.
There'll be time to enjoy photo opportunities before leaving the set to begin your journey home. You should arrive back in your local area during the mid-to-late evening, depending on the traffic and distance to be travelled after what promises to be a really memorable visit!

There is a steep hill in the village of Esholt between the coach drop-off point and the 'Woolpack'.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.Back to top
