What to expect

Tick off Bronte Country and the Yorkshire Dales National Park and its surrounding highlights on a full-day tour from York. You will explore the natural expanse and visit the Pennine village of Haworth, Bingley Five Rise Locks, and Bolton Abbey, home to the 12th-century ruins of an Augustinian monastery.

The first stop is at the Bingley Five Rise Locks where you will see the highest Staircase Lock in the UK, a spectacular feat of engineering constructed in 1774 as part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. You can explore and photograph the working locks, or just enjoy a leisurely Yorkshire Brew and soak up the local atmosphere in the nearby cafe. You will then arrive in Haworth, on the edge of the rugged Pennine Moors, where the Bronte family lived from 1820 and the sisters wrote their famous novels, for a two-hour stopover lunchtime. You can visit the Bronte Parsonage Museum and the Bronte Memorial Chapel in the nearby Church where their father preached, or just explore the quaint shops on the cobbled main street and have a leisurely lunch in one of the traditional cafes - the choice is yours!

You’ll also have the opportunity to take a ride on the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway for a small supplement.
