What to expect

Explore the beauty of vast lands and panoramic views on this tour into the heart of Yorkshire.

After starting your journey with a quick stop at the famous Ilkley Moor, you'll arrive at Saltaire; the world's first model village built by Sir Titus Salt and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander around the textile mill that has now been turned into a museum, gallery and collection of independent shops and learn why this place was so important to the industrial revolution.

You'll then make your way to the highlight destination of the trip; Haworth. Breathe in the fresh air and roam the vast countryside where the Bronte sisters lived and gained inspiration for their famous novels. You can visit the Bronte Parsonage Museum if you wish and you'll also have the chance to see the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

Then, you'll head to Bolton Abbey. Marvel at the picturesque ruins that sit on the edge of the winding Riner Wharfe and take in the surrounding landscapes that have inspired famous artists such as Wordsworth, Ruskin and Turner. After a jam-packed day, you'll then head back to York.
