Your Itinerary

Day One: Included Emmerdale Village tour

Leaving the local area this morning we'll travel to Esholt, the original 'Emmerdale village' used in the TV series between 1976 and 1998 until its popularity attracted so much interest that filming here became impossible. We'll stop at the famous 'Woolpack' pub where there'll be a chance to go inside and enjoy a drink (payable locally) before we continue to the hotel.

Day Two: Included Emmerdale Studio tour

After breakfast we'll head into central Leeds for our visit to the Emmerdale Studio Experience, which offers a fascinating insight into one of Britain's most iconic TV shows.

See the interior sets for Bernice's Salon and The Dingles' living room, and discover what it's like to act out a scene in Smithy Cottage as your Emmerdale Studio Experience guide talks you through past storylines and unique displays of props and memorabilia. Interactive elements will show you some of the special effects used to create iconic scenes such as the helicopter crash that devastated Pete and Debbie's wedding, and Cameron Murray's death during the flooding of the Woolpack cellar.

After time for lunch (payable locally) we'll re-board the coach and head to Emmerdale Village - The Tour, the show's current outdoor filming location, a purpose-built set tucked away in the midst of country lanes on the Harewood Estate. See where, and hear how, some of the most iconic and memorable moments from the show were filmed, peek inside the Vet's Surgery, Smithy Cottage and the Dingles' Garage, and walk through the Parish Church on a 90-minute fully guided walking tour with an Emmerdale expert.

You'll have time for photo opportunities before we leave the set to begin the journey home, arriving back at your pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.

ITV reserves the right to cancel access to the live filming set at any time in the unlikely event that pre-scheduled filming overruns.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

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

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
