At leisure at the hotel with the following excursions:

To continue with our railway theme we include a visit to the famous York railway museum.

This famous line is steeped in history offering some of the finest scenery in Britain. The 72 mile route takes you through the Yorkshire Dales and Eden Valley through the rural villages and over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct.
3.Keighley and Worth Valley Railway - We travel to Keighley for a ride on the Keighley and Worth Valley railway, perhaps best known for the filming of the ‘Railway Children’. We stop at Haworth to enjoy the fascinating Olde Worlde shops in the main street before a visit to the Bronte Parsonage, a museum to the Bronte family and their home between 1820 and 1861. We also include a visit to Oakworth Station where we board the return train to Keighley.
