God's Own Country!!
Sunday 4th - Friday 9th July 2004
Yorkshire

Provisional Itinerary (subject to change)

Sunday 4th July

Leaving Bedfordshire after breakfast, we will head north stopping off en route as appropriate. We will arrive at our hotel in good time to settle in before our evening meal

Monday 5th July

Today we will have the whole day in York. We start with a visit to the National Railway Museum, where we have arranged a short talk and coffee, (incl.) and then the rest of the day is free for you to explore this wonderful city.

Tuesday 6th July

This morning we will travel the short distance to Burnby Hall Gardens which is home to the National Collection of Waterlillies. Here you will find over 5000 flowering plants growing in two acres of lakes. (incl.) We have then planned a visit to the attractive town of Beverley. Here you will find plenty of places to get lunch and then there will be time to explore. A visit to The 13th century Minster is a must, but also wander through the maze of narrow medieval streets to St Mary's Church and discover the connection with Alice in Wonderland!

Wednesday 7th July

Today we have planned a visit to the seaside and this is probably Yorkshire's best - Scarborough.

Thursday 8th July

Donít be alarmed, but todayís tour includes mice! Not real ones I hasten to add, but wooden mice, the signature of Robert Thompson, the "Mouseman" of Kilburn who signed all his pieces of fine English oak furniture with a small mouse. This morning we visit the brand new visitor centre (incl.) for a guided tour. We will then visit Northallerton and travel back to York across the moors.

 

Friday 9th July

After breakfast we will leave our hotel and make our way south. We will stop off en route at Epworth Old Rectory (incl.) where 301 years ago John Wesley was born. This lovely old house is now a museum to the founder of the Methodist Church. The rest of our journey will be by main roads and we should arrive back in Bedfordshire in the late afternoon
