Day 2 Christmas Eve, York

York is the ideal destination for a festive day trip, and that's what we've got lined up today. The city's historic core is a fantastically well-preserved relic of medieval design, with its crown jewel being the sprawling York Minster Cathedral. After a guided tour of all the key sights, you'll have some time to yourself to get some lunch and explore the ancient streets – many of them decked out in their Christmas finery. Later, we'll gather once again to enjoy dinner at the hotel.

Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Christmas Day, Harrogate

Festive spirit will be in abundance today, as we enjoy a wonderful Christmas lunch together at the hotel. Afterwards you can simply relax and enjoy your surroundings, or perhaps choose to walk into the Victorian heart of Harrogate. In the evening, we'll all meet up again for a light meal.

Meals included: B,L,D

Day 4 Boxing Day, Wetherby Races

After a leisurely breakfast and some free time in the morning, thrills and spills will be on the agenda today, as we head off to the traditional market town of Wetherby for an afternoon at the races. You might fancy a flutter, or just want to pick a favourite to cheer on – either way, the atmosphere will be electric as we watch the incredible horses and riders take on the course.
Afterwards, we'll head back to the hotel, where we'll share our farewell meal together.

Meals included: B,D
