Day Two

Our day begins with an ‘Emmerdale’ drive, taking us through the beautiful countryside featured on the opening credits of the programme as we make our way to the tiny village of Esholt – ‘Beckindale’ and then ‘Emmerdale’ for many years.  We have included a drink at the famous ‘Woolpack’ and from here we head for the former spa town of Ilkley, sheltered by Ilkley Moor and the Cow & Calf Rocks.  We stay in Ilkley for lunchtime and you may fancy tea & cakes at Betty’s.  This afternoon we visit the National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall, an intimate manor house set in mature grounds in the Aire Valley.

Day Four

This morning is free for you to explore the town of Harrogate, enjoy a stroll through beautiful Valley Gardens, explore the delightful Victoria arcades for some retail therapy. Have a relaxing lunch in one of the many restaurants, cafes and bars.  We have an early evening dinner before tonight’s outing to Ripon.  First we have a behind the scenes guided tour of the beautiful and awesome Ripon Cathedral and this is followed in the market square by one of the oldest English traditions kept alive for hundreds of years without a break.  At 9.00pm the Ripon Hornblower sets the night watch from each corner of the obelisk in the centre of the square to reassure citizens that all is well before returning to Harrogate.
