Monday

This morning we travel West to your hotel with a comfort stop at the popular Brigg Garden centre. Spring is fully blooming and this garden centre has lots of ideas for your gardens this summer. We should arrive with time to settle in before your evening meal.

Tuesday

After breakfast we travel into Settle to meet the railway for a 40 minute journey to Kirkby Stephen. The Settle to Carlisle Railway is one of the most scenic and impressive railways in the UK, with viaducts, tunnels and the wild scenery of the North Pennines, Eden Valley and Yorkshire Dales.
The Settle to Carlisle Railway was the last great mainline railway to be built in this country. Completed for passenger travel in 1876 by the Midland Railway Company, it had taken six years to build. For the 19th century engineers, the landscape presented a tremendous challenge to their ingenuity, skills and abilities. Your driver will allow free time in the lovely town of Kirkby Stephen. A traditional market town of historic buildings, cobbled yards, quaint corners and interesting shops, ideally located in the beautiful Upper Eden valley, formerly the old county of Westmorland, now Cumbria. This is an area of Cumbria much less well known than the Lake District, but equally appealing. It is surrounded by a landscape of pastoral rural scenery and wild uplands and offers breathtaking views in every direction and has been part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, since 2016. Remotely located from large towns and population centres, Kirkby Stephen has developed a strong and self-sufficient identity and a vibrant sense of community.

Wednesday

Foulridge Canal cruises has been operating under the present ownership for 23 years on the tranquil countryside section of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at Foulridge Canal Wharf, 2 miles from the end of the M65 motorway in Colne. The boat Marton Emperor seats 50 people in comfort and we run all year for charters, the boat having central heating for the colder months. We join the boat for a 90 minute cruise with tea/coffee and biscuits served on board you can relax and unwind as you take in the scenery. This afternoon we go to Skipton to have a walk around the market, this market has been on the go for 800 years and still is the highlight for many passengers on our tours.

Thursday

We say a fond farewell to our hosts and travel back to Lincolnshire. Your driver will ensure a comfort stop is made on the way.
