Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - Friday

We meet at York Station and our first stop is for lunch at the Yorkshire Heart Vineyard and Brewery (hence the Yorkshire Corker!). After a tasting or two we head off to explore rural life in the North Riding at the Yorkshire Farming Museum at Murton Park. Here, the Derwent Valley Light Railway provides the rails to round off the day.

Meals: Dinner
Day 2 - Saturday

Today, we head for the Dales of Yorkshire and Cumbria starting at the Wensleydale Railway, running through...Wensleydale! On then, via Hawes, to the emerging steam railway at Kirkby Stephen East. This little-known gem provides an enthralling visit. It runs on the same original track-bed of our next stop, the Eden Valley Railway. We return on the fast but scenic route through Bowes reflecting on a lovely day out.

Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 3 - Sunday

We journey north for some fantastic attractions today. The Museum of the Royal Navy at Hartlepool is a recreation of life in the forces afloat that also has a Tall Ship. Then, it’s the world-famous Beamish – the ever-growing Open-Air Museum with trams, trains, buses and a period village. The newest addition is their 1950s area! Finally, steam at the Tanfield Railway, chugging past the oldest railway bridge in the world – Causey Arch.

Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 4 - Monday

It’s our big Moors and Coast day today – we rail from Northallerton to Victorian Saltburn and include the famous pier and miniature railway before what will for many be the holiday highlight. We are spending the rest of the day with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. We’ll devise an itinerary that offers opportunities to watch and photograph the trains as well as ride through the delightful upland scenery.
