Included excursions during
your stay are:
• A visit to Bolton Abbey where the ruined priory
is set in a beautiful and tranquil loaction
alongside the River Wharfe – a truly
inspirational setting for many. We have time to
enjoy this landscape, part of the Duke of
Devonshire’s estate, before we head for Bolton
Abbey station for a ride on the steam train to
Embsay. From here we go to Bronte Country –
Haworth – little changed since the family lived
here. Later we enjoy a steam train ride along
the Worth Valley, following locations used in
the film ‘The Railway Children’ and afterwards
we return to the hotel.

York for free time before we join the steam
train to Scarborough. We have the afternoon
in the town and the opportunity to obtain
lunch and explore the harbour and maybe
enjoy a stroll around Marine Drive. Dinner
tonight is NOT included due to the late return
of the train, therefore it is advisable that you
eat in Scarborough before leaving. On arrival
in York the coach returns us to the hotel in
• We make our way to Bingley station to join the
train for a scenic spectacular journey along the
Settle to Carlisle Railway, crossing the majestic
Ribblehead Viaduct on the way. We leave the
train at Kirkby Stephen and rejoin the coach
for a ride across the moors to Tebay and
Kendal, continuing to Bowness-onWindermere,
where we have our lunch break.
