Historic York

Rich in ancient history, York is the perfect destination for groups. Renowned for its exquisite architecture, tangle of quaint cobbled streets and the immense, awe-inspiring York Minster, one of the most impressive Gothic cathedrals in the world, there are plenty of first class attractions to enjoy.

Janine says…
”Being so central, the Queens Hotel is ideal for exploring fabulous York. The team here really know how to look after and deliver for groups.”
Day 1 Arrival
We have time to settle in before dinner.

Day 2 York Driver’s Day Off
We spend today exploring the compact medieval walled city of York. There are many attractions to enjoy including the awe-inspiring York Minster, its Old Palace and its state of the art attraction, The Undercroft, The Jorvik Viking Centre or a relaxing River Ouse Cruise. Stroll around “The Shambles”, one of the best preserved medieval streets in the
world or visit the National Railway Museum, home to over 300 years' of railway history. Here we can see the famous blue Mallard engine that broke the world speed record for steam trains in 1938 - a record that has never been broken since - and the stunning 1935
Art Deco opulence of the Duchess of Hamilton steam  train before jumping into the 21st century with the only futuristic Bullet Train outside of Japan.

Day 3 Castle Howard
Built over 300 years ago, Castle Howard’s rich and varied history is waiting to be discovered. Visits to the house are free-flow allowing groups to explore at leisure, with friendly and knowledgeable guides on hand to share the stories of the house, family and
collections. We can learn about Castle Howard’s link to some of the most popular TV programmes filmed over the past few years, with ITV’s Victoria and Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited most famously having been filmed here. There are also award
winning exhibitions to enjoy as well as the stunning grounds and gardens.

Day 4 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
