Coach Itinerary

Christmas Eve – York
We head to historic York, where we can wander the narrow cobbled streets known as the Shambles or spend some time in the city’s beautiful Norman Minster, which boasts some of the finest stained-glass windows in the world. Alternatively, why not take a stroll around the city walls or stop for tea at the famous Betty’s tea rooms. Back at the hotel, we enjoy a candlelit dinner followed by a game of bingo and a festive quiz.

Christmas Day
Christmas Day is a day of laidback leisure at our hotel where we enjoy a hearty Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, followed by the Queen’s speech, a visit from Santa and a ‘guess the weight of the Christmas cake’ competition. A hot and cold buffet will be served for dinner followed by an evening of fun and games.

Boxing Day – The Yorkshire Dales (Grassington & Skipton)
This morning we explore the Yorkshire Dales, calling first at the lovely village of Grassington with its beautiful stone buildings, cobbled market square, quirky shops and friendly cafés. We continue on to Skipton. Known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, this charming town if full of quaint streets and historic buildings with a grand medieval castle as its centrepiece. On return to the hotel we enjoy a buffet lunch. After dinner this evening, we are treated to some live entertainment.
