D

DAY 2

A short local train journey today takes you through quaint Knaresborough to historic York, which boasts many attractions, not least the Minster, city walls and, of course, the National Railway Museum. After free time to discover the NRM and the city's other attractions, we meet up for a visit to the York Brewery, set within the city walls, where the brewing process is explained on a guided tour, including four tasters of the brewery's products.

B, D

DAY 3

Today's excursion skirts the Dales as we transfer to Keighley for the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. An included day ticket allows you to ride the scenic line all day through countryside made familiar through film in the Railway Children, hopping on and off as you please. Why not break off in Haworth, the home of the Brontës, and visit the Parsonage, before we meet up in Keighley for the return journey to Harrogate.

B, D

DAY 4

A fabulous tour of the Dales awaits today, as we transfer first to Bolton Abbey for a ride on the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway along the former Skipton-Ilkley Line to Embsay Station, which was built in 1888. Heading north by coach through the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, we pick up the Wensleydale Railway, a preserved railway servicing locals and tourists alike on a scenic line through Wensleydale that once connected the East Coast Mainline with the Settle & Carlisle. Our circular tour of the Dales then ends in Masham with a tour and tasting at the excellent Black Sheep Brewery.

B, D

DAY 5

We bid "ah'll sithee" to Yorkshire and make our way home.
