York ½ Day Tour

Travel through 2000 years of history in this glorious city. Learn about its founding in AD71 by the Romans, its development and destruction and how time & time again, the city was able to rebuild and reinvent itself. Marvel at a wealth of buildings from the Ancient to the Modern, including one of the best-preserved Medieval streets in the world – The Shambles.

All Creatures Great & Small – 1 Day Tour

Working with a York based chauffeur we can take you on a glorious journey around the Yorkshire Dales national park with stops at some of the key locations made famous in the TV series. We’ll have coffee in Grassington which becomes fictional Darrowby and travel down the narrow road to Helen’s farm. Lunch will be in, where else, but a typical country pub!

Castle Howard ½ Day Tour

Join me from the comfort of your own home on a virtual walking tour of the beautiful town of Beverley in East Yorkshire. Visit this impressive stately home made famous in Brideshead Revisited and more recently, series 1 of Bridgerton. The tour will include a visit inside the house learning of history and family behind it followed by a walk around the magnificent gardens taking in fountains and follies along the way! (Admission charges not included in the tour price). Why not combine Castle Howard with a visit to Whitby? Travel across the spectacular North York Moors to this cute and quirky seaside town. It is dominated by the ruins of Whitby Abbey on the cliff, which has inspired writers for centuries including Bram Stoker when writing Dracula! After a filling lunch of fish and chips, work it off by climbing the 199 steps to the Abbey to find out more of its history.

Yorkshire Wolds – 1 Day Tour

Explore this lesser-known part of Yorkshire to see the landscape that inspired artist David Hockney. We will drive through the unspoilt dry chalk valleys taking in pretty villages and scenic views. Your tour could include a visit to Burton Agnes Hall, an interesting stately home with its original Norman manor house and an impressive art collection.
