Yorkshire Dales Carousel
The vibrant and popular city of Leeds attracts more visitors a year than many traditional seaside resorts and as the only city outside of London with its own repertory theatre, opera house and ballet company, it’s easy to see why.
Taking a coach holiday to this cultured metropolis can be a great way to explore the many sights on offer.
Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam RailwayEmbsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway
The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway is a preserved heritage railway that runs for four miles along part of the former Midland Railway route between the award-winning Bolton Abbey station and Embsay station, which was built in 1888. Both stations offer gift shops and tea rooms and most trains are hauled by beautifully-restored steam engines, the oldest one dating back to 1908.
A journey on the award-winning Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway is an unforgettable experience for everyone to enjoy!
Narrowboat cruise on the Leeds & Liverpool CanalNarrowboat cruise on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal
Enjoy a gentle cruise through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with a narrowboat cruise along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, departing from the lovely market town of Skipton. Along the way, listen to a hilarious recorded commentary from award-winning comedian Dave Spikey (of Phoenix Nights fame) to learn more about Skipton and the history of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal as well as other points of interest. Food and drink is also available to purchase on board.
Hawes & AysgarthHawes & Aysgarth
Hawes is a charming little market town, loaded with character, rolling hills, pretty bridges and even its very own waterfall at its centre! Perched loftily 850 feet above sea level, this windswept setting is home to the world famous Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese, making it one of the top attractions within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Be sure to enjoy a wander around the quaint antique emporiums, art galleries and independent craft shops.
Further along the hidden roads snaking through the Dales is the teeny village of Aysgarth, nestled around the striking St Andrews Parish Church and just a stone’s throw from the famous Aysgarth Falls, which featured in the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves film. Back in the village, enjoy a well-deserved cuppa in one of the lovely tearooms.
Grassington is a delight for visitors and can be a perfect stop for a coach tour with its bustling cobbled market square, fringed by shops offering local arts and crafts, all set against a beautiful scenic backdrop.Back to top
