Suggested excursions

Day 1

Travel to your hotel.

Day 2

Black Sheep Brewery, Hawes and Wensleydale Creamery.

This morning we travel to the North Yorkshire market town of Masham for a ‘shepherded’ tour of the famous Black Sheep Brewery and sample some of the products in the ‘baa…r’. There’s also the Sheepy shop, full of ‘ewe-nique’ gifts. We leave the land of amusing wordplay and travel through the magnificent scenery of the Yorkshire Dales to Hawes and the Wensleydale Creamery. We go back in time with a tour of the original farmhouse dairy to learn about the cheese-making process and the chance to watch the skilled craftsmen in the cheese rooms. Afterwards there’s free time to explore the village.

Day 3

York and York’s Chocolate Story.

York’s great chocolate making families of Rowntree’s and Terry’s have played a major part in the history of the city. Today we find out more with a visit to York’s Chocolate Story, a city centre attraction that follows the chocolate-making process and reveals the secrets of popular brands including Kit-Kat, Aero and Terry’s Chocolate Orange. After tasting some chocolate the day is free to explore the historic city, its quaint cobbled streets and the magnificent York Minster. Other attractions worth visiting include the Jorvik Centre with a ‘ride’ through the history of the Vikings in the city, and more bloody history at the York Dungeon.

Day 4

Travel home.
