Thursday

We depart and make our way to West
Yorkshire and our hotel for the next 4 nights
with dinner, bed and breakfast.

Friday

This morning we begin with a drive to the
pleasant North Yorkshire market town of Settle,
where we take a break to look around before we
enjoy a ride on the Settle and Carlisle Railway,
considered to be one of England’s most scenic
rail journeys. We join the diesel train for the
journey, passing through spectacular scenery,
crossing the famous Ribblehead viaduct and
stopping at Dent, the highest mainline station in
England. We re-join the coach for the short
journey into Hawes, before continuing along
Wensleydale, past Leyburn for our final visit
today to the city of Ripon, with its magnificent
cathedral.

Saturday

Today we head off along the Aire
Valley to Skipton – ‘Gateway to the Dales’. The
main street houses the well-known market, and
Skipton castle stands proudly at the top of the
street. Whilst here we enjoy a river cruise on one
of the country’s best-known inland waterways.
From Skipton we make our way to Haworth,
home of the famous Bronte sisters and their
notorious brother. Later we enjoy a steam train
ride along the delightful Worth Valley, following
the locations used in the film ‘The Railway
Children’.

Sunday

Our travels today begin with a visit to
Bolton Abbey set in a beautiful and tranquil
location alongside the River Wharfe, surrounded
by moorland, woodland and riverside. We then
make the short journey to Bolton Abbey station
for a ride on the steam train to Embsay.
Continuing through beautiful Dales scenery we
visit the Dales village of Grassington with its
cobbled street, diminutive market place and its
many quaint byways and alleyways.

Monday

After breakfast we depart for home.
