We travel north, making a comfort stop en-route to the industrially historical town of Halifax. Standing proud in its centre, the Piece Hall is a Grade I listed building dating from 1779 that was built as a cloth hall for the trading of ‘pieces’ of cloth. Upon arrival we will have a tour by a knowledgeable heritage guide who will lead us on a journey of discovery; now the only surviving building of its kind anywhere in the UK there are many fascinating stories to be told, ranging from the Georgian period right through to the current day. From here, we continue to our hotel and our 4-night stay.


We join our coach for the scenic drive to Carlisle where we begin the highlight of our tour today – a train ride on the Settle & Carlisle Railway. Travelling through the glorious wild fells of Westmorland and the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, we journey through some of the country’s most spectacular scenery to the pretty market town of Settle, where we re-join our coach for the short journey back to our hotel.


Our day begins with more beautiful scenery as our memorable route takes us to Grassington then through Wharfdale via Kettlewell to Aysgarth. We continue through delightful Wensleydale to the market town of Hawes, where we visit the Wensleydale Creamery.


Today’s highlight is a scenic canal cruise on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, with refreshments included. The canal is steeped in over 200 years of history, from its heyday of carrying coal, wool and stone from the dales to
Leeds and Liverpool through to modern day pleasure cruisers enjoying the tranquil, slow pace of life. In the afternoon enjoy some free time in Skiptonbefore returning to our hotel.


It’s time to return home today but not before visiting Haworth, home to the Bronte Sisters, with time to explore the cobbled main street, or perhaps visit the Bronte Parsonage.
