After collection from your home, we meet the coach and travel north to York, arriving at the hotel to settle in before dinner.
Whitby & Goathland
This morning we head north to Whitby, the famous fishing port which was once the home of Captain James Cook. High above the harbour stands the 7th century Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. We have time to wander the narrow streets and busy harbourside before leaving for picturesque Goathland, famous as 'Aidensfield' in TV's popular 'Heartbeat'.
A Day at Leisure in York
Today you have time to explore historic York. Renowned for its compact medieval walled city, exquisite architecture and tangle of quaint cobbled streets in the famous "Shambles", attractions include the awe-inspiring York Minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum and the National Railway Museum. After a day sightseeing and/or shopping, return to the hotel to relax before dinner.
We spend today in Scarborough, the original seaside resort, offering stunning scenery and glorious beaches. Stroll along the promenade and simply enjoy all the attractions of a traditional seaside resort - amusement arcades, fish and chips, ice cream parlours, shellfish stalls, beach huts, boating, crazy golf, miniature railway, to name but a few. All ingredients for a day full of good old-fashioned summer fun!
We depart after breakfast and begin our journey home with comfort stops along the way.
