Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning, we head to Harrogate. Discover the graceful architecture, colourful gardens and shopping of this vibrant town, which also boasts a thriving cafe culture.

Don't miss world-famous Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms, which offers a staggering choice of breads, cakes and chocolates as well as 50 different teas and coffees. In the late afternoon we'll continue to our hotel, arriving in good time for dinner.

Day Two

This morning we head to Grosmont for a journey on one of the longest preserved lines in the UK - the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. We'll ride through farmland, forests and heather-clad moors, and past pretty villages, following George Stephenson's original 1836 route to Pickering.

We will spend the afternoon in the seaside town of Whitby. Explore the bustling lanes leading down to the harbourside, visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum or simply enjoy the views. The really energetic may like to climb the 199 steps to the abbey ruins and St Mary's Church, which is said to have inspired Bram Stoker to write "Dracula".

Day Three

After a full English breakfast, we'll head to Beamish Open Air Museum. Set in 300 acres of beautiful countryside, this award-winning museum vividly recreates life in the North in the early 1800s and 1900s.

Spend a fascinating day strolling the cobbled streets of the market town (complete with shops, school, sweet factory and dentist), discovering early 19th-century rural life at Pockerley Manor and the full-size, working replicas of a 'lost locomotive' and Stephenson's Locomotive No 1 at the 1825 Pockerley Waggonway. Visit the Colliery Village drift mine, and see a working pre-WW1 farm at Home Farm.

Day Four

Today we'll visit the historic market town of Richmond, with its Norman castle, Georgian architecture and large cobbled market place. After time to explore, shop and perhaps have lunch we'll begin the journey home, arriving in the mid-to-late evening.

Colchester Couple
A little disappointed in the hotel, right out in the middle of no where but I suppose it served its purpose as a sleeping place.

Gorleston-on-Sea Couple
Our hotel bedroom was dirty and the paper was peeling from the wall
The staff were good
The Tour Guide was a total waste of time, gave us very little information either about where we were going, how long it would take etc
The day of the train trip we had no break for lunch, my husband is insulin dependent diabetic and needs to eat regularly which was very difficult on this tourAt the suggestion of Steve our driver, the feeder coach picked us up from Cambridge then drove us to Fakenham before travelling to Norwich, Yarmouth and Lowestoft then drove himself back to Hunstanton resulting in us getting home to Yarmouth an hour later than we should have. Will not travel with Newmarket again, the journey is too long
