Day 1: Following your home taxi collection, we make our way to North Yorkshire and the Gisborough Hall Hotel for our 4 night stay.
Day 2: Our first visit today is to Preston Park and Hall Museum. The attractive parkland surrounds the museum. In the museum, you will find a delightful collection of memorabilia from times gone by. Take a walk back in time through the cobbled Victorian street and imagine life as it was in times past. At Preston Hall, we join the ‘Teesside Princess’ and take a gentle cruise on the River Tees through beautiful countryside to the cobbled town of Yarm, famous for its location on the River and the awe-inspiring railway viaduct. In the afternoon, we drive through Bilsdale - “Little Switzerland”, past the Sun Inn, which has had the same landlord for 200 years! We then pass Rievaulx Abbey, and drop into Helmsley with its 12th century castle. On our way back to the hotel we journey over the spectacular Sutton Bank, giving you fantastic views of the moors and the Vale of York.
Day 3: Today we visit Thirsk, the home of James Herriot, for the chance to take in the acclaimed World of James Herriot Centre. Afterwards we take in a piece of history as we take a ride on the ‘Wensleydale Railway’. This delightful little railway travels through some beautiful rural countryside, bringing back memories of how train travel was all those years ago. Later we end the day with a visit to Richmond, high above the River Swale. Here you will find a castle, The Green Howards Museum and the Richmondshire Museum, which houses the ‘set’ from “All Creatures Great & Small”.
Day 4: We travel over the moors, across Blakey Ridge, through picturesque Hutton-le-Hole to Pickering, where we join the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a steam train journey through rugged moorland to Whitby – passing through Goathland – ‘Aidensfield’ in TV’s ‘Heartbeat’. Whitby is a maritime town, bursting with character and quite unique. Wander the alleyways and narrow streets and climb the steps up to Whitby Abbey.
Day 5: We return to Norfolk, where our door to door service will be waiting to return you home.
