This northern English city has a rich heritage and has been the site of major political events throughout history. Originally founded by the Romans in 71 AD it became the capital of the Britannia Inferior. Its most famous landmark is York Minster which rises above the city and has long been one of the largest Gothic cathedrals of its kind in Northern Europe. In more recent times, York, with its railway-related and confectionary industries has become a popular destination for train lovers and those with a sweet tooth. Groups are sure to enjoy their stay in this great northern city.
Yorkshire Dales National Park or simply “The Dales” is an area of outstanding natural beauty and was designated in 1954 as a National Park of Britain. The Dales is a collection of river valleys and hills rising from the Vale of York. The scenery of the Dales is mainly green pastures separated by dry stone walls and grazed by sheep and cattle which provides for breath-taking views of the “V” shaped valleys which were shaped during the most recent ice age. There are many recreational and educational activities for groups to do whilst on this tour such as learning about the Dales Heritage and countryside.Ask a Question Get a Quote
