Expect exquisite gardens, beautiful parks, handsome tree-lined boulevards and a chance to lose yourself in the vibrant charm and elegance of this North Yorkshire destination.
We start the day in Knaresborough. The medieval streets of Knaresborough are a delight to explore, each with small independent shops waiting to be discovered, florists, art and craft shops, music shops and fine wine specialists. In the afternoon we continue on to nearby Harrogate. Harrogate is the definitive boutique spa town in the heart of Yorkshire. Its thriving streets buzz with busy shops and eateries.
We begin the day with time at leisure in Lincoln. The city offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink. In the afternoon sit back, relax and enjoy the sights of Lincoln and the countryside from a different perspective aboard a 50 - 60 minute guided canal trip with a very entertaining commentary about Lincoln's past and present.
Matlock, the county town of Derbyshire, is a former spa town situated at a sharp bend in the River Derwent, where it turns south to carve its way through the ridge of limestone which bars its route towards Derby. The modern town is divided neatly into two: the main town radiating out from the river crossing opposite the railway station and Matlock Bath spread out along the gorge to the south. Whereas Matlock itself seems solid and Victorian with neat stone houses going in rows up the hill, the Bath has a more frivolous air. Overlooking it all is the gigantic folly that is Riber Castle, built in the 1860s by the same John Smedley who constructed the Hydro.
