Few cities rival the historic splendour of York and it is no wonder that it is one of our top selling destinations. Steeped in history spanning 2000 years, York is a compact walled riverside city home to world-class attractions including the stunning York Minster. We stay within the medieval city walls allowing you time to explore the historic centre and its many attractions and cobbled streets lined with interesting and original shops. Very popular so please book early!
After being collected from your local pick up point around 8.00am, we travel to York, stopping on route for a comfort break and lunch before arriving at the hotel mid/late afternoon.
After breakfast we have arranged for a leisurely walking tour of the city centre which a local guide. The remainder of the day is at leisure for you to take advantage of the position of the hotel and visit some of the attractions of York. There is so much to see - York Minster, walk the city walls, visit a museum, art gallery or just relax in a café bar and enjoy the atmosphere.
In the morning we depart for an excursion to Leeds. This bustling city has been christened the 'Knightsbridge of the North', with many pedestrianised streets and shopping centres housing some of the most famous brands in the world. But its not all shopping - grab a bit to eat on the stylish waterfront or visit the Art Gallery or the acclaimed Henry Moore Institute.
After breakfast we head off for a morning visit to Harrogate. This Victorian Spa Town is a touch of class with its delightful architecture, shopping arcades and parks. Returning early afternoon.
We depart and head home with comfort stops as required. Returning to your local drop off point
