Day 1: On leaving our local boarding points, we head north, stopping en-route in the historic city of Lincoln, with its magnificent cathedral, ancient castle and medieval Bishops Palace. After lunch, we continue on to our hotel, where we enjoy welcome refreshments, while porters take care of our luggage.
Day 2: Today, we pay a morning visit to Flamborough Head, one of the most spectacular areas of chalk cliffs in Britain, home to an early 19th century lighthouse and one of the largest colonies of nesting sea birds in England. We spend the remainder of the day in the popular resort of Scarborough, with its two majestic bays, ruined cliff-top castle and busy harbour. Bounded by the dramatic North York Moors & the pastures of the North Wolds, Scarborough boasts acres of gardens, tree-lined walks, a pleasant promenade, sandy beaches and many other attractions.
Day 3: After breakfast today, we visit historic Beverley, a town of attractive cobbled streets and charming courtyards, boasting an unspoilt medieval skyline and splendid 13th century Minster, widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest Gothic churches. This afternoon, we take a scenic drive across the Yorkshire Wolds to award-winning Burnby Hall Gardens, described as "a jewel in Yorkshire’s crown”, with beautiful lakes, home to a National Collection of Hardy Water Lilies, formal beds and a natural shrubbery. Burnby was the inspiration of world traveller Major Percy Marlborough Stewart, and there is a museum dedicated to his extraordinary life.
Day 4: Today’s excursion takes us to Bridlington, one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Yorkshire Coast, with its glorious beaches, historic harbour, pretty promenade and quirky “Old Town”, which featured in the recent Dad’s Army film. Time to explore, before we head up the coast to Sewerby Hall and Gardens, beautifully situated overlooking the sea, and surrounded by award-winning landscaped gardens. The Grade I listed hall has undergone extensive renovations, and is now restored to its former Edwardian splendour, using furniture from the Victoria & Albert Museum, and boasts interesting displays, including one dedicated to Hull-born aviatrix, Amy Johnson.
Day 5: We depart after breakfast, & commence our return journey.
