Day 1: Following your home taxi collection we continue our journey to North Wales making suitable stops en route. Our 4 night stay is on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.
Day 2: Our first outing of the week takes us to the magnificent City of York. You will have a full day in the city to explore the numerous attractions. Perhaps take a sightseeing tour on an open top bus or a boat trip on the River Ouse, visit the world famous York Minster, take a walk on the famous city walls and explore the “Shambles” with its ancient leaning buildings, one of Europe’s best preserved medieval streets. See the excellent Castle Museum with its Victorian street and the superb Railway Museum housing a collection of over 100 locomotives. A packed lunch is included today.
Day 3: This morning we have a short drive to the village of Ripley. Here we enjoy a guided tour of historic Ripley Castle, home to the Ingilby family for over 700 years. The castle has many stories to tell, including Oliver Cromwell being held at gunpoint in the library. From here we return to the hotel for a light lunch – soup and sandwich, and the afternoon is then free for exploration of the town. With huge open spaces and broad tree-lined boulevards, antique shops and shopping malls, elegant buildings, abundant greenery, flowers and plants, it is little wonder that the town is a frequent winner of Britain in Bloom awards. Harrogate also boasts the world famous Betty’s tearooms, founded in 1919 by a Swiss confectioner, and just round the corner from Betty’s is Farrar’s of Harrogate, established in 1840 and best known for its Original Harrogate Toffee – the favourite sweetie of the late Queen Mother.
Day 4: Today we enjoy a morning drive to Ripon with its magnificent Cathedral. Today is market day, where there is chance to explore the beautiful market square before a scenic drive along Nidderdale, returning to our hotel for a light lunch and a final chance to explore Harrogate.
Day 5: After a leisurely breakfast we depart for Norfolk, where our door to door service will be waiting to transfer you to your home.
