A SPRING TIME EXCURSION TO YORKSHIRE FOR HISTORY, THE SEASIDE, NORTH YORKSHIRE MOORS SCENERY, A STEAM RAILWAY AND WHITBY.

 

There are so many things to see and do in North Yorkshire that we cannot offer you everything, but this excursion certainly ticks boxes for anyone who likes to spend time in a historic city (York), or enjoys a visit to the seaside (Scarborough or Whitby), who finds fascination in the open countryside (North Yorkshire Moors) or who thrills to the ride behind a magnificent steam engine through superb scenery (the North Yorkshire Moors Railway).

 

So here is our day out, with joining points along Severnside into the West Midlands, then off to the North through the Midlands and Derbyshire and into Yorkshire to York, with around six hours to spend exploring this world famous city. Alternatively, stay aboard and the train will terminate at Scarborough, a major seaside resort and fishing port with a history that pre-dates the 12th century cliff-top castle. It has many attractions to while away the afternoon.

 

We have organised an option to the North Yorkshire Moors and its Railway. At Scarborough join the waiting road coach for a trip along the attractive coast to Whitby, where you join a steam-hauled* train for the journey through the North Yorkshire Moors scenery to Pickering, from where your coach returns you to our train at Malton. Subject to timings there will be several short breaks included.

* In exceptional circumstances a heritage diesel may substitute.

Supplementary Fare: £26.50 Adult, £16.50 Junior.

 

If you simply want several hours to explore Whitby, without the railway ride, then we can offer this, with coach connection from Scarborough, later returning to Malton through the North Yorkshire Moors scenery.
Supplementary Fare: £16.50 Adult, £9.50 Junior.

 

MOTIVE POWER IS EXPECTED TO BE A GBRf CLASS 47 DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE.
