A great new 5 day break featuring the East Riding area of Yorkshire and the delightful Yorkshire Wolds. We include entrance to the beautiful Burton Agnes Hall, a visit to a vineyard with a tasting, time at the seaside, exploration in York and a visit to Europe’s largest antiques centre.
The 4 star Mercure Hull Grange Park is a 19th century manor house nestled in 12 acres of landscaped gardens. All bedrooms are ensuite and equipped with a TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The bright Brasserie restaurant serves a selection of fresh, local produce and the bar offers the perfect space to relax.
From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive north to Yorkshire for a late afternoon arrival at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel. We have time to settle in before this evening’s dinner.
Departing after breakfast we make for the old capital of the East Riding of Yorkshire – Beverly, famed for its inspiring minster. We enjoy a fascinating guided tour of this ancient place and have time to soak up the atmosphere. After a good stay we make our way to one of the most popular coastal resorts of Yorkshire – Bridlington. We take time to soak up the sea air before continuing on to the beautiful Burton Agnes Hall, a lovely stately home full of great charm and character yet still a family home.
This morning we cross the iconic Humber Bridge into Lincolnshire and to the Helmswell Antique Centre. Here we find Europe’s largest selection of dealers offering the widest possible range of collectables. Take your time wandering through the vast array of bygone treasures. Onward now to Lincoln; dating back over 2000 years, Lincoln is a city steeped in history. Take a walk along the cobbled streets dotted with Roman ruins, Tudor landmarks and medieval battlements.
A leisurely breakfast before we depart for the centre of all the three ridings of Yorkshire – York, a fabulous city where every wall reverberates with history. We enjoy a guided tour of the city, then time at leisure, and there are so many possibilities here – The National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Centre, Bettys Tea Room, The Shambles, the York Minster, take a river cruise or simply stroll around the riverside gardens or city walls. This afternoon we visit the award winning vineyard – Little on the Wold. Established in 2012, the winery has over 12,000 vines of 7 different red and white grape varieties. We enjoy a guided tour of the site followed by a tasting before heading back to our hotel.
After breakfast we depart for home with fond memories of our time in the Yorkshire Wolds.
