Scarborough enjoys an unrivalled position as one of Britain’s premier coastal resorts yet also lies tantalisingly close to North Yorkshire’s rugged National Park. On this holiday you can enjoy the golden beaches, superb parks and gardens.



• Yorkshire’s Premier Holiday Resort

• Historic Whitby and Captain Cook Country

• North Yorkshire Moors

• Ancient city Of York

• Ryedale Folk Museum included


We depart from our local area and
travel north to Yorkshire arriving at the
Esplanade Hotel in time to settle in and
relax before dinner and 5 nights stay
with dinner, bed and breakfast.


We take the coast road this morning to Whitby, the famous fishing port
which was once the home of Captain James Cook.
High above the harbour is the 7th century
Whitby Abbey - the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s
Dracula. Wander the
narrow streets and busy harbour before we leave for a
scenic journey across the moors to Pickering.


Today you can explore the delights
of Scarborough. There is the delightful
promenade in the Belvedere Gardens,
a short walk brings you to the town centre or
explore the beaches of South Bay and the
busy harbour. Her Majesty the Queen recently
reopened the newely restored Open Air Theatre. The
town boasts indoor markets and antique shops and the walk
up to the fortress castle will afford you wonderful views
across the bay.


We will spend today in the historice city of York.
There is plenty to do in the ancient city. The
National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Centre
and the Castle museum are just some of the
attractions. You can stroll around the city walls
or explore the many quaint alleyways and of course visit
the magnificent Minister which dominates the city.
We return to Scarborough in the late afternoon.


Our frst visit today is to the pretty
village of Hutton-le-Hole. Here we visit
the Ryedale Folk Museum, depicting the
history of the region over the years. From here
we head up onto the moors, crossing Blakey
Ridge, with spectacular views all around, as we
make our way to Guisborough, our lunch stop for
today. This afternoon we make our way along
Bilsdale, known as ‘Little Switzerland’, to the Sun
Inn. Here we stop for tea and biscuits before
returning via Helmsley to Scarborough.


Our Yorkshire visit is sadly at an end and we return
home today.
