Few destinations can rival York’s incredible history and character. This lovely city has been a cornerstone for important events in British history stretching back 2000 years, it has been a Roman settlement, a Norse capital, and the centre of Christianity in Northern England and the site of many decisive battles.
Summer is a lovely time to visit York, the winding, cobbled streets are buzzing with visitors, the parks are full of flowers and a warm welcome awaits in the many old (sometimes haunted) pubs!
You will have plenty of free time to explore some of York’s other fine attractions – including the majestic York Minster, The Jorvik Viking Centre, the Castle & Museum, the National Railway Museum and the ancient city walls.
We will stay overnight at the comfortable Ibis Hotel in Rotherham East. Sunday breakfast is included.
On Sunday we will visit iconic Chatsworth House, the lavish manor home of the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire. Explore over 30 stately rooms and a priceless collection of art than spans 4000 years. Relax in acres of grounds and landscaped gardens, and view the stunning exterior of the house which featured as Pemberley in the 2005 film version of Pride & Prejudice.
