WHAT DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE?
Day One: Included visit to Esholt
Leaving the local area this morning we'll head to Esholt, the village used as Emmerdale from 1976 until 1998. Stop for a drink at the original Woolpack pub (payable locally), here in the village, before we continue to the hotel with a stop for dinner en route.
Day Two: Included visit to the Emmerdale Studio Experience
After breakfast we'll head to central Leeds for the highlight of your break - a visit to the fascinating, new Emmerdale Studio Experience. Housed in ITV's Burley Road Studios, the Emmerdale Studio Experience offers you the chance to get up close to the sets of Bernice's Salon, Smithy Cottage and the Dingles' living room. See costumes and props from the show, a quarter-size replica of the village, and have your picture taken behind the bar of the Woolpack.
The Experience is divided into a number of interactive zones and as you follow them round you'll discover how sets, storylines and characters are created and brought to life using careful craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology.
After the tour we'll head into Leeds to visit the city's Christkindelmarkt - one of the largest and most established German Christmas Markets in the UK. Traditional wooden stalls offer a wealth of handcrafted goods, gifts and traditional German delicacies. Soak up the festive atmosphere amid the twinkling lights, before we begin our return journey after lunch, arriving back at your original pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.
Depending on the time of your Emmerdale Studio Experience guided tour, you may visit Leeds Christmas market in the morning and Emmerdale Studio Experience in the afternoon.

There is a steep hill in the village of Esholt between the coach drop-off point and the 'Woolpack'.
