Friendly, gorgeous, and fun: North England’s charms are irresistible.

So, on this tour, you find out what’s so special about the North.

You travel to York and learn about an ancient Viking city. You try out Britain’s most famous cakes and cheeses. You venture through the legends of Robin Hood. And you roll over the green and scenic valleys of the Peak District.

And maybe by the end of this trip, you’ll have plans to settle here too.

Itinerary

Day 1 Manchester - Castleton - Monsal Head - Bakewell - Chatsworth House - York

  • Admire the green heights of the Peak District
  • Wander through green mazes and ornate halls at Chatsworth House

It’s time to leave the big city behind and travel to the Peak District.

In the late morning, you arrive in Castleton. This quaint old town attracts travellers from all over the world for its quintessential English charm. Nearby, there are caves, a beautiful view up a valley, and an insightful information centre.

You then venture to another beautiful valley at Monsal Head. There’s an old rail line viaduct that emerges from the green hills. It’s a gorgeous structure with an impressive history.

If you’re hungry, then you’re in luck, because you’re stopping for lunch in Bakewell. Not only is this town delicious to look at, but it’s also the home of one of England’s most famous desserts, the Bakewell Pudding.

You should ensure you’ve cleaned up the crumbs, because now you’re heading to Chatsworth House. This luxurious stately home is incredible; you can admire architecture, get lost in a massive maze, or praise precious art.

You head off in the early evening to your overnight stop in York.

Day 2York - Goathland - Whitby - Robin Hood's Bay - York

  • Visit a magnificent cathedral and learn about the Viking past in York
  • Explore two essential harbour towns at Whitby and Robin Hood Bay

You have the choice to spend your whole day in York or come with us on a day trip around the nearby sights.

If you choose to stay in York, you can visit a chocolate museum, find out about the Vikings, or stroll around the ancient walls.

Alternatively, you may head out with us to Goathland in the morning. This town was used in the Harry Potter movies and is situated in one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. Your next stop on the day trip is Whitby. This is the type of town everyone dreams of retiring in. There’s a beautifully located, ruined abbey; old stone steps curving around viewpoints; and a lovely little beach to play about on. After exploring all the nooks and crannies of Whitby, you travel to Robin Hood’s Bay. They doubt if the real Robin Hood ever came here, but there are still plenty of smugglers tales dotted around this remarkable harbour village.

You arrive back in York mid-afternoon with time to admire the famous cathedral. (B)

Day 3York - Fountains Abbey - Aysgarth - Clitheroe - Manchester

It’s time to say goodbye to York, England’s capital of Vikings and chocolate.

And although it’s your last day, there’s still plenty more to see. You first take the road to Fountains Abbey. This is one of the largest ruined abbeys in England and part of an important UNESCO Heritage site.

You then find yourself surrounded by some of England’s most lovely waterfalls at Aysgarth.

Now, there’s a delicious lunch for you, because you’re travelling around Wensleydale, home of England’s most famous cheese. Just make sure you have some crackers, so you can eat it the authentic way.

You travel past the epic Ribblehead railway viaduct before having a short snoop around the old castle-topped town of Clitheroe.

You arrive in Manchester in the evening where you join the express train service back to London Euston. (B)
