After breakfast we travel by train from York to Harrogate, where we take a short walk to the famous Betty’s Café & Tea Room. We’ll be treated to a delicious traditional Yorkshire Cream Tea hosted in the exclusive Imperial suite. Once closed to the public, the Imperial suite features beautiful 1920s detailing and tasteful oak decor. With views of the Stray, 200 acres of grass parkland that gives Harrogate its unique green and spacious feel, we will be dining in style. We walk off our tea with a guided tour of this historic spa town. Our guide will point out the key sights, including the Roman Baths and the beautiful Montpellier Quarter, with its restored 19th century buildings. After our tour there will be some free time for lunch before we head to the Christmas markets. As darkness falls and the markets light up, you are free to enjoy the festivities and indulge in a spot of Christmas shopping, before our return train journey to York and a relaxing evening dinner at our hotel.

This morning our coach transfers us into the centre of York where we’re joined by our guide for a walking tour of this beautiful little city. We’ll pass medieval churches, ancient Roman city walls, the striking York Minster and Clifford’s Tower – all that remains of York Castle, built by William the Conqueror. Our tour ends at the National Railway Museum where you are free to enter. Alternatively you can use your free time to explore York or simply relax in one of the local cafés. This afternoon we visit the Christmas markets, where you’ll have free time to peruse the stalls full of interesting food and unique festive gifts, before our coach transfers us back to our hotel for dinner and a relaxing evening.
