Scarborough is one of Britain’s premier coastal resorts and lies close to North Yorkshire’s rugged National Park.
Day 1 We travel north to Yorkshire arriving at our hotel in time to relax before dinner.
Day 2 Following the coast road, we reach Whitby, once home to Captain James Cook. High above the harbour stands Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Dracula. Explore the narrow streets and busy harbourside before a scenic drive across the moors to Pickering.
Day 3 A free day to enjoy Scarborough.
Day 4 A day in the historic city of York, beginning with a guided driven tour. The rest of the day is free for your own exploration. You might like to visit the Jorvik Centre, The Castle Museum, National Railway Museum, the City Walls, or stroll through the many quaint little alleys and check out the independent shops and cafés as you go.
Day 5 Our day in the moors begins at Hutton-le-Hole and the Rydale Folk Museum. We then head up over Blakey Ridge, with spectacular views all round, and over to Guisborough, our lunch stop. In the afternoon we travel along Bilsdale to the Sun Inn for tea and scones before returning via Helmsley to our hotel.
Day 6 We leave our hotel after breakfast and head for home, reaching our taxis early evening.
