Monday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive north where we arrive at our 3 star hotel late afternoon. Upon arrival, tea, coffee and biscuits will be available to enjoy whilst our luggage is taken to our rooms.
Tuesday After breakfast we make our way north to Newcastle’s famous quayside. We have plenty of time here to explore Newcastle at leisure. Why not take lunch in a quayside pub or explore the high street shops or museums before re-joining the coach and making our way back to the hotel.
Wednesday Leaving the hotel after breakfast we head south to the city of York. We are met by our informative guide who joins the coach as we enjoy a tour of the city, seeing parts that you would not usually see. Feeling knowledgeable, we have free time to enjoy York and its famous attractions such as York Minster or the nostalgic Railway Museum before we return to the hotel for dinner.
Thursday This morning we travel to the ancient and historic city of Durham, acclaimed as a World Heritage Site and dominated by the magnificent Norman Cathedral and Castle. We have time to explore the city with its labyrinth of little streets and alleyways, or perhaps a stroll along the river. This evening, each guest can enjoy a Valentines gift in the form of a glass of wine, chocolates and a rose.
Friday We bid farewell to our hosts and make our way south, arriving in our home areas mid afternoon.
