YORK

We visit medieval York and visit the York Railway Museum where you can immerse yourself in the home of iconic locomotives.

Excursion 1

York & York Railway Museum - Our excursion will take us to the famous city of York. Tourists from all over the world come to visit the Shambles, one of the best-preserved medieval streets in Europe where some of the buildings date back to 1350 and the timber framed buildings lean towards each other across the street. To continue with our railway theme we include a visit to the famous York railway museum.

Excursion 2

Keighley and Worth Valley Railway - We travel to Keighley for a ride on the Keighley and Worth Valley railway, perhaps best known for the filming of the ‘Railway Children’. We stop at Haworth to enjoy the fascinating Olde Worlde shops in the main street before a visit to the Bronte Parsonage, a museum to the Bronte family and their home between 1820 and 1861. We also include a visit to Oakworth Station where we board the return train to Keighley.

Excursion 3

Skipton to Carlisle aboard the Settle Carlisle Railway - We travel to Skipton where we board the scheduled train service for a return journey to Carlisle. This famous line is steeped in history offering some of the finest scenery in Britain. The 72 mile route takes you through the Yorkshire Dales and Eden Valley through the rural villages and over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct.
