Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - Friday
Meet at Doncaster Station around noon, take a short drive through the town centre to the Danum Library and Gallery – home to 2 unique steam locomotives and lots of stuff about this railway town. Then on the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum to browse its extensive collection, including a chance to visit aircraft cockpits and see the special Falklands exhibition.
Meals: Dinner
Day 2 - Saturday
Across the Humber we go by the famous bridge to take a rather special branch-line before steamy fun at Cleethorpes and in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Our day concludes at Scunthorpe for what is probably the tour highlight – a privately chartered, steam hauled, brake van tour of the British Steel Works – different eh!!
Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 3 - Sunday
We put in the miles today, starting by train as we explore East Yorkshire, visit the pioneers of the Yorkshire Wolds Railway and lunch in historic Beverley before heading once more to North Lincolnshire for The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft. We then fit in a fantastic model railway before a last night meal together on our way back to Hull.
Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 4 - Monday
Homeward bound today, so we’d better find out something about the City of Kingston upon Hull before we go! The Street Life Museum has railway and other transport exhibits before we encounter sea creatures galore at The Deep! Even the early afternoon departure is spectacular as we set off from the splendid Hull Paragon Station, homeward bound.
Meals: Breakfast
