Itineraries & Prices: The tours in the brochure and on the website are published many months in advance and the itineraries listed are for guidance only and may be subject to slight alterations.
All prices are correct at time of publishing but please confirm all prices at time of enquiry/booking.

In 2021 year a few of the attractions in our Itineraries were either closed or numbers were restricted, we would hope for 2022 this will be resolved but we will keep you informed. Things are still different for the start of the year and we will continue with our rigorous approach to maintain passenger safety. As this Brochure is printed in December we have no idea of the guidelines which will be in place but we will notify you of any with your Travel Tickets.

The Pennine Explorer

Staying in a fine hotel on the edge of the Pennines, this holiday features two very different journeys through the hills and moors of North Yorkshire. Reminders of a bygone age when travel was altogether slower, sit back, relax and watch the dramatic landscape unfold.
