Description
HIGHLIGHTS: Esholt, Keighley & Worth Railway, Haworth, Castle Howard, World of James Herriot Museum, Shibden Hall, Grassington

Yorkshire has inspired and played host to some of the most popular and successful dramas seen on British screens over the past fifty years. The unspoilt countryside of England's largest county has formed the backdrop to countless classics - from the long-running soap Emmerdale, to the naked success of Calendar Girls and the timeless charm of Brideshead Revisited - and our five day break offers a wonderful glimpse of these, and many more, instantly familiar locations.

**Please note it is a condition of travel with Grand UK, for all passengers to hold valid travel insurance for the duration of their tour.**
Itinerary
Excursions
FULL DAY: This morning we make our way to Castle Howard, the elegant setting of Brideshead Revisited, within 1,000 acres of landscaped gardens and grounds. In the afternoon we take time to visit the World of James Herriot Museum, in the picturesque market town of Thirsk, which offers an unforgettable experience of the life and times of a man who became an international celebrity after the publication of his books.

FULL DAY: Today we enjoy a day of nostalgia. First to Haworth, where the Bronte Parsonage was the setting for the Doctor's Surgery in The Railway Children, before taking a ride on the Keighley & Worth Railway from the same film and many others. This afternoon we make our way to Halifax and to Shibden Hall. Dating back to 1420, the hall is the main setting in the BBC's 'Gentleman Jack', that follows the story of diarist Anne Lister, who lived in the hall.

FULL DAY: This morning to Esholt, the original location of ITV's long-running Emmerdale. Here you will find the original Woolpack Inn, used before a purpose-built set was created in the grounds of Harewood House. Continuing through Otley - Emmerdale's 'Hotten' - we head into the Dales through Grassington and Kettlewell, the real home of the WI Calendar Girls.
