This morning’s visit is to Thirsk, home of James Herriot, where we visit the acclaimed World of James Herriot Centre before taking a ride on the Wensleydale Railway through beautiful rural countryside, bringing back memories of yesteryear.

Wed:

Our first visit today is to Preston Park and Hall Museum set in attractive parkland. The museum houses a delightful collection of memorabilia from times gone by, with large social history collections, an armoury, toys and games. Take a walk back in time through the cobbled Victorian street and imagine life as it was in times past. We then 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’, and 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 return we journey over the spectacular Sutton Bank, offering fantastic views of the moors and across the Vale of York.

Thu:

After breakfast 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’ - on the way. We have time in Whitby to wander the little alleyways and narrow streets and perhaps climb the famous steps up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey. We depart Whitby late afternoon and travel across the moors to our hotel.
