A new break for 2017, we take you to some of the best-loved and most iconic TV & Film locations in Yorkshire. Visiting Otley & Esholt better known as ‘Hotton’ & ‘Emmerdale’ from the soap and enjoy lunch at the Woolpack accompanied by a star from the actual Emmerdale show! We also visit ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ locations - not to be missed!
Thursday We collect you from your local pick up point to join your tour coach and travel to Wakefield arriving late afternoon at the Cedar Court Hotel for a three night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.
Friday We head north making our way through scenic countryside where we will discover some of the locations used in the filming of Emmerdale. Our tour will also include a visit to the market town of Otley in Wharfedale, known as Hotten in the soap. We will continue on to Esholt where much of the filming of Emmerdale took place for 22 years (before a replica village was constructed in the grounds of Harewood House situated between Leeds & Harrogate) & where you will see familiar landmarks including the Woolpack pub. You will then end at the Woolpack Inn (the original home of Emmerdale) to enjoy a cold buffet lunch and be accompanied by a star from the actual Emmerdale show.
Saturday Today we enjoy a scenic tour of Last of the Summer Wine Country in the heart of the Holme Valley. This comedy classic is the longest running TV comedy programme to have appeared on British television and is based around a trio of older men, Compo, Cleggy & Foggy, and their youthful antics and Compo's attraction to Nora Batty. Our tour will take us to Holmfirth, the village where much of the filming took place and the location of Sid's cafe and Nora Batty's house which now houses the Last of the Summer wine Exhibition & Gift Shop (small admission charge applies) where you can see some of the props used in the filming & perhaps purchase a souvenir.
Sunday We depart after breakfast and travel back home to Wiltshire making suitable comfort stops en route.
