Our base for this tour is the pleasant spa town of Harrogate, well known for its tea shops, antique shops and Turkish baths. We also see some stunning Dale & Moor scenery as well as some of England’s greatest towns and cities! The popular hotel has a packed itinerary as well and this T&T was a great success in 2018 when run for the first time.
Monday We travel to Yorkshire via a stop in Chesterfield, famous for its crooked spire, where today is market day. There is a Mulled Wine Reception before dinner this evening.
Tuesday To York where we have plenty of time to enjoy its magical charm or visit its great shops or museums. The annual Christmas Fayre is on, set in the historic square. It has continued since medieval times and the city comes alive.
Wednesday A free day to explore Harrogate with its amazing shops and wonderful gardens. In the afternoon the hotel provides a mini afternoon tea.
Thursday Following a stop in Skipton we enjoy a drive through the Yorkshire Dales, passing through Settle and Leyburn, before making an afternoon stop in Ripon, the unspoilt cathedral city of the Yorkshire Dales. Superb scenery all day.
Friday We return home with a lunchtime stop in the Peak District town of Bakewell.
Traditional Victorian 3 star hotel within walking distance of the town centre.
