Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

Travel to your hotel

Arrive at your hotel in time to relax before dinner. If time permits, why not stop off in the historic city of York.

Day 2

Whitby and North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Today we travel to the bustling fishing port of Whitby where the famous Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’, stands guard, high above the town. There’s time to explore the narrow streets, perhaps buy some Whitby jet – the ‘black amber of the north’, and have ‘proper’ fish and chips for lunch. In the afternoon we take the steam-hauled North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a trip through the spectacular national park and ‘Heartbeat’ country to Pickering.

Day 3

Filey and Castle Howard

This morning we travel via the coast road to visit the traditional seaside resort of Filey, the gentle pace of life, long sandy beach and historic promenade attracting generations of visitors. We continue to Castle Howard, one of the grandest private houses in the country, made famous for its starring role in the TV series ‘Brideshead Revisited’. The 18th century residence is set within 1,000 acres of breathtaking landscape, dotted with temples, lakes, statues and fountains.

Day 4

Scarborough Fair – Afternoon Tea, Tea Dance, Museum & Carousel

This morning, we are off to Scarborough Fair. The halls feature one of the largest collections of steam engines, mechanical organs, and vintage cars from time gone by. In the afternoon, enjoy a buffet afternoon tea with tea or coffee, followed by a tea dance. Live music is provided by a Wurlitzer organist playing a selection of your favourite melodies.

Day 5

Return home

After breakfast start your journey home.
