Skipton and Grassington Itinerary
From local joining points we journey south to Morecambe and check into the Headway Hotel. This comfortable hotel stands on Morecambe’s East Promenade with lovely views over the bay. It has a quiet lounge as well as an entertainment venue.
After breakfast, we head firstly to the market town of Skipton, located on the River Aire and the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Here a real Christmassy feel is promised when the town’s market lines the High Street oozing yuletide charm. After time to browse the stalls, we move on to the nearby beautiful village of Grassington where the streets and market square are transformed into a Dickensian wonderland as locals dress in period costume and street musicians entertain the crowds. Late afternoon your coach will return you to your hotel in time to relax before dinner.
Enjoy breakfast before checking out and making our way home with rest stops along the way.
