23rd December

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Christmas Eve – York

We visit historic York, where we can wander the narrow cobbled streets with their distinctive overhanging buildings or spend some time in the city’s beautiful Norman Minster, which boasts some of the finest stained-glass windows in the world. Alternatively, why not take 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?

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is a day of laidback leisure in Scarborough, where our hotel provides a hearty Christmas lunch with all the trimmings followed by Christmas cake, tea and coffee. A light buffet dinner is served in the evening.

Boxing Day – Optional excursion to Whitby (£9pp)

Our optional half-day excursion takes us to the charming coastal town of Whitby, famed for its place in Gothic literature as a setting in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and for its striking jet jewellery – popularised in Victorian times. Take a wander around the harbour or tackle the climb up to the atmospheric ruined abbey perched on the cliffs above the town.

27th December

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.



Book your next trip to York, one of Europe's most popular historic cities, renowned for its Roman, Viking and Medieval heritage with lots of attractions for visitors to enjoy. The streets are full of historic buildings, traditional shops and cafés, and a number of museums and art galleries.

The city’s historic sites are impressive, contained within the city walls which date back to Roman times and are themselves an integral part of York’s unique character.



Scarborough coach trips are one of the best ways to enjoy one of Yorkshire’s premier seaside resorts, with its colourful seafront, bustling promenade, sandy beaches and beautiful gardens. This is a fantastic destination for a coach break, at any time of the year.

Scarborough offers a fantastic range of attractions and activities for all ages on a coach holiday. Explore Scarborough Castle, a 12th-century Roman ruin, dominating the resort headland. Discover the secrets of the underwater world at the Sea Life Centre, relax at the beautifully oriental-themed Peasholm offering a beautiful system of streams and waterfalls, mini bridges and mystical gardens park, or take a trip on one of the county’s oldest miniature seaside railways.

The Scarborough seafront is split into two lovely beach bays, on the north and south, linked with Scarborough's historic Victorian architecture. The South Bay is a great place to check out on a coach tour with its bustling seaside entertainment, whilst the quieter North Bay is ideal for taking a relaxing stroll.



Experience a coach break to Whitby, an ancient and beautiful sea port with a history going as far back as the founding of its famous abbey in 657AD, which still dominates the East Cliff headland, with fantastic views overlooking this most popular seaside resort.

Offering something for everyone, there are many attractions that are connected to the town's fascinating past, from the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, where you can learn about the famous explorer's life, to the Dracula Experience, which guides you through the story and its connection to the town.
