• Yorkshire’s Premier Holiday Resort

• Historic Whitby and Captain Cook Country

• North Yorkshire Moors

• Ancient city Of York

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.


A free day to discover the varied
attractions of Scarborough. Enjoy the delightful
promenade in the Belvedere Gardens, take a
short walk to the town centre and shops, or the
busy little harbour. Explore the town with its
indoor markets and antique shops, or walk up
to Scarborough’s fortress castle and enjoy the
views across the Bays.


This morning we leave for a day in
the ancient and historic City of York. In York
there are lots of things to see and do – The
National Railway Museum, The Jorvik Centre,
The Castle Museum, stroll around the City Walls,
explore the many quaint little alleyways, and, of
course, no visit to York is complete without
seeing magnificent York Minster. Late afternoon
we return to Scarborough.


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.


After breakfast we depart for home.
