Holiday Highlights


4 Days - 3 nights with dinner, bed and breakfast


  • Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway 1940's Weekend

  • Royal Armouries Museum

  • Golden Acre Park

  • Ilkley and Wharfdale


We depart and make our way to Yorkshire
arriving late afternoon at the Mercure Leeds
Parkway Hotel. tea/coffee & biscuits are
served on arrival. Here we enjoy 3 nights stay
with dinner, bed and breakfast.


This morning we leave the hotel and have a
pleasant ride into Wharfedale and the former spa
town of Ilkley. We have a break here and have a
chance for a drink at the famous Betty's Tearooms
before we move on to Bolton Abbey. The Embsay
and Bolton Abbey Railway are reliving the nostalgia
of wartime Britain and stepping back into the
difficult times of 1942/43. Watch out for the
Home Guard, Soldiers and Airmen returning
home on leave and of course the long
suffering civilians. There will be displays at
Embsay and Bolton Abbey stations. Soak up
the atmosphere as we enjoy a nostalgic return
train ride.


Start the day with a pleasant stroll around Garden
Acre Park, next to the hotel, and mid-morning
we head off into the thriving city of Leeds and the
superb Royal rmouries Museum. The museum has
five principal galleries - war, self-defence, oriental
armour, hunting and tournament and offers a real
eye-opener to conflict and armour over the
centuries. Afterwards we have some free time to
have a look at the city centre, in particular the
Victoria Quarter and the new Trinity complex.


After breakfast we depart for home.
