Itinerary

Description

Every October, the Yorkshire market town of Pickering goes back in time to the 1940s as it hosts its very popular wartime weekend. The event originally focused solely on the North York Moors Railway but has expanded over the years and the whole town has become involved. Various events are staged at stations along the railway (for example Goathland and Grosmont), and steam trains depart regularly from Pickering to Levisham (or Le Visham), which becomes a French village under German occupation for the weekend! In Pickering itself you’ll find parades of 1940s military and civilian vehicles, plus British soldiers, American G.I.s and some dodgy-looking civilian characters too! Other attractions include demonstrations of wartime life, musical performances, dancing, marching bands and fashion shows, and whether you join in with 40s period dress or experience the event as a present-day observer, it’s a superb fun day out for all the family. 

Coach Itinerary

Saturday After a morning departure from your local area we travel to your hotel where you’ll have time to settle in before dinner and your overnight stay.

Sunday Breakfast at the hotel first and then the coach will depart for Pickering where you will have the full day to immerse yourself in the mood of the 1940s. In the late afternoon, we’ll re-board the coach for the journey home.
