Included Excursions
The World of James Herriot Museum, Thirsk & Ripon (full day)
Today we step into the world of James Herriot, the popular author and one of England’s most famous vets. The fascinating museum gives us a glimpse into Herriot’s life where we can see the spaces where he lived, worked and penned his beloved series of books that document his North Yorkshire experiences. There is so much to see, including plenty of memorabilia, a Second World War air-raid shelter, Herriot’s car and the original dispensary filled with potions and remedies.

We then enjoy some free time in picturesque Thirsk, where Herriot moved to in 1940 and remained for the rest of his life. There are some lovely cafés, pubs and shops in the town, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.

Our next stop is the charming city of Ripon, renowned for its narrow, atmospheric streets lined with historic buildings and the ancient cathedral, which boasts the country’s oldest surviving Anglo-Saxon crypt. The city also offers a trio of award-winning museums which delve into the Victorian courthouse, prison and workhouse system.

Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Skipton & Haworth (full day)
We take a relaxing cruise on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, one of the highlights of the Yorkshire Dales and a lovely way to soak up the surrounding scenery. We then have free time in the market town of Skipton, known as the ‘Gateway to the Dales’ and complete with a grand medieval castle as its centrepiece.

Afterwards, we make our way to Haworth, where the Brontë sisters spent much of their lives. Boasting a historic cobbled main street, the village has a wonderful collection of quaint tea rooms, craft and gift shops, tempting restaurants and cosy pubs while the Brontë’s former home, Haworth Parsonage, is now a museum.

Hotels with a JG3 rating tend to be a more formal style of hotel, often part of a hotel chain, or are very-welcoming family-owned properties. Generally, they offer a greater range of facilities and services, and bedrooms tend to be a little more spacious with additional features. Public areas are larger and include lounge seating, bar and restaurant with good quality food served either buffet style or waiter service.
