Day 05
York, England

York

Hotel: B&B/Hotel or similar

Our journey begins in the late morning when we head for the magnificent North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Lunch will be in Whitby, a bustling fishing port and the inspiration for the fertile imagination of author Bram Stoker, who stayed in the Royal Hotel on the western side of Whitby while writing his famous novel Dracula. After lunch and free time in Whitby, we'll travel to Robin Hood's Bay, a perfectly preserved village of winding lanes and narrow alleyways.

Tips:
The minicoach cannot access the main village due to local restrictions. The difficulty level of the walk to reach the old village center is moderate to strenuous.

After breakfast we'll travel the short distance out of town to the mysterious Castlerigg standing stones, thought by many to have been built over 5,000 years ago.

We'll then travel to the shores of Ullswater, described as England's most beautiful lake. Continuing south over the narrow and winding Kirkstone Pass we'll stop at Windermere, where you can opt to join us on a leisurely cruise or simply eat lunch while enjoying the view.

After lunch we'll travel around the southern tip of Windermere and on towards Coniston Water, after which we'll arrive at the picturesque village of Hawkshead, where the poet William Wordsworth attended grammar school.

After free time to explore the village, we'll navigate the narrow country lanes north towards Grasmere, which Wordsworth described as "the loveliest spot that man hath found." There you will have free time to visit Wordsworth's Dove Cottage or enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Wordsworth Daffodil Garden by the River Rothy.

Visiting Attractions

Day 08
Edinburgh

Jedburgh - Scott's View - Edinburgh

Leaving the Lakes behind us, we'll begin our climb up Hartside Pass, which stands at over 1,900 feet. On a clear day the hills and mountains of Scotland and the English Lake District are clearly visible as we follow the route of the old sheep drovers between England and Scotland.

Stopping at Hadrian's Wall, built by Emperor Hadrian to keep the Scots out of the Roman Empire, we'll have an opportunity to explore some of the Roman ruins and walk in the footsteps of the Roman Centurions who patrolled this desolate frontier. Following the ancient Roman Dere Street, we'll cross into Scotland and continue on to the border town of Jedburgh for refreshments in the shadow of the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey.

Our final stop is the world-famous Scott's View, encompassing the River Tweed and the Cheviot Hills that broadly demarcate the Scottish-English border. We'll arrive in Edinburgh at around 7:00pm.
