Tours of Yorkshire & the Dales

Postcard of view over Burnsall, Yorkshire Dales

Yorkshire is so beautiful that it’s often referred to as ‘God’s own county’. There are wild moors, national parks, coastal towns… and some of the best beaches in Britain. Yorkshire also has a rich cultural heritage. We usually offer this tour as a three day package, starting from London with stop-offs on the way. Alternatively, if you’re based in Yorkshire, we have a local guide who can take you on a day trip to remember.

York Minster

York

York was established by the Romans in the 1st century and has over 3 miles of medieval walls and a series of quaint little streets called 'The Shambles'. It’s a lovely place to shop and have a traditional cuppa. The 14th century cathedral, York Minster, is the largest medieval church in England.

Whitby

This traditional seaside resort is said to be where Count Dracula came to life (the author Bram Stoker penned the gothic masterpiece while staying at the Royal Hotel). There’s a maze of alleyways and narrow streets, running down to the lively little quayside.

Yorkshire Dales cottage

The Yorkshire Dales

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with spectacular waterfalls, craggy peaks, and mysterious caves. We’ll take you to places including the incredible Ribblesdale viaduct, the ruins of Bolton Abbey, and the town of Howarth where the Brontë Sisters lived.

"My living in Yorkshire was so far out of the way, that it was eleven miles away from a lemon"
Sydney Smith, English writer (1771 - 1845)
