HOME PICK-Ups Included

Lincolnshire and Yorkshire By Water

Based at the Broughton Hall Forest Pines Spa Hotel, in the town of Brigg in North Lincolnshire, our new east coast packaged tour features a chance to visit two popular tourist cities in Lincoln and York, alongside one of Yorkshire's best kept secrets in the market town of Beverley.  We include a visit to Lincoln Castle as well as three boat trides as we take a 45 minute cruise in York, a one hour canal cruise in Lincoln before concluding our tour north of the Humber and a 1 ½ hour boat trip from Bridlington out to Flamborough Head.

Sunday - Day 1

Following your home pick up, join up with the tour coach and we commence our tour north.  Travelling via the motorways we will make suitable comfort and refreshement stops throughout our journey as we head to the Doubletree by Hilton Broughton Forest Pines Spa Hotel, our base for 4 nights.  This 4-star hotel is nestled within 190 acres of beautiful woodland near to the small market town of Brigg in North Lincolnshire.  Upon arrival you will have the chance for a cup of tea or coffee before having some time to freshen up before your evening meal. 

Monday - Day 2

We travel to the popular historic city of York where we begin our visit with an entertaining and informative 45 minute City Cruise.  Our leisurely cruise glides up and down the very same river that brought the Romans and Vikings to York.  Live commentary will be delivered by local skippers who will regale us with fascinating facts about the city’s incredible history.  Once back on dry land the remainder of the day is free for you to explore a city which has been built around well preserved medieval features such as the old city walls, York Minster, Cliffords Tower and The Shambles.

Tuesday - Day 3

We visit Lincoln - a city which is rich in history and offers shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink.  The main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping centre up to the Cathedral Quarter - known locally as 'Uphill'.  Included is a visit to the magnificent Lincoln Castle with its unique, fascinating restored Victorian Prison and was used as a filming location for TV series such as Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife.  In the afternoon, we enjoy a 1 hour guided canal cruise taking in the sights of Lincoln and the surrounding countryside with entertaining commentary.

Wednesday - Day 4

We cross the Humber Bridge and head to Bridlington where we take a 1 hour boat trip out to Flamborough Head.  Sailing across Bridlington Bay as we reach the tip of Flamborough Head you will see both of the Lighthouses (the old and the “new”) and of course being at sea you will gain a perspective of the cliffs and these features, that cannot be seen from Bridlington. Then we head to Beverley - one of Yorkshire's best kept secrets.  Renowned for its exquisite 13th Century Minster, the town is home to a lively market, a thriving music scene, excellent flat racing and a medieval skyline that remains refreshingly unspoilt.

Thursday - Day 5

After breakfast it is time for us to leave North Lincolnshire behind as we load up the coach and via the motorways we make our way back down south and home.  We will make suitable comfort and refreshment stops en-route heading back to our coach meeting point where we will join up early evening with the feeder coaches that will continue your journey back home.

About Our Tours

We have been operating tours and mini breaks around the U.K. and abroad for a number of years, and by far the most popular innovation that we have introduced in recent years, is to offer a virtually door to door service. Picking up as near as practically possible to your home in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire means you don’t have to worry about getting your luggage to the coach, and avoids the additional cost of having to use taxis.

By using our small fleet of mini-buses, we are able to keep the pick-up time to a minimum and get you on your tour coach and on your way as soon as possible. This way your holiday starts on the first morning. Once your holiday is over we will collect you again from the coach park and return you home.
