Description

Starting in the morning from York, this guided day trip provides the perfect opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to explore Bronte Country and the scenic and picturesque Yorkshire Dales National Park. To ensure personal service and comfort, the tour capacity is limited to 16 passengers and the Minicoach is equipped with air-con.

Join your guide in York and head off for Bronte Country in the West Yorkshire Pennines. Inside the climate-controlled minicoach, let your mind wander while admiring rambling stone walls and stately English manors. Make a stop at the Bingley Five Rise Locks where you see the highest Staircase Lock in the UK. Explore and photograph the working locks, or just enjoy a leisurely Yorkshire Brew and soak up the local atmosphere in the nearby cafe.

Arriving in Haworth, you have 2 hours to explore. Tour the Brontë Parsonage Museum and the Brontë Chapel and learn about the places where the Brontë sisters penned their 19th-century novels or just explore the quaint shops on the cobbled high street and have a leisurely lunch in one of the traditional English cafes.

You leave Haworth and head up Penistone Hill for a photo stop to enjoy the moorland views towards Top Withens, where the sisters walked to gain inspiration, before heading north for your afternoon in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

You will arrive in the picturesque, traditional Dales village of Linton, where you will have the opportunity to explore Linton Falls before continuing the journey through the National Park.

The main afternoon stop is at Bolton Abbey, where entry is free and you will be able to explore the Priory Church and ruins of the 12th Century Augustinian Priory in its beautiful riverside setting, or maybe take the stepping stones challenge if you are feeling more adventurous!

You will leave Bolton Abbey to continue your journey through the Dales back towards York, passing through Harrogate and learning a bit about the history of this famous spa town.

You will arrive back at the meeting point in York at approximately 5:15 PM but should not book onward travel too close to the arrival time just in case of traffic problems.

Chris was a very informative and nice guide. The day was nicely paced with scenic stops and a 2-hour stay in the town where the Bronte sisters lived, and then a beautiful drive through the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the way back to York.
