Days 2 to 4 - At leisure with three included excursions.

Skipton, Pennine Boat Cruise & Grassington
After a leisurely breakfast a journey to Skipton, dubbed "The Gateway to the Dales". This wonderful historic market town is situated in the heart of the beautiful Pennines with its superbly preserved 900 year old medieval Castle.

During the hour long trip the skipper unravels the captivating tale of the canal while passing through the varied scenery, mill buildings and the many bridges. Your final stop today is the popular main village, Grassington with its cobbled Market Square, home to several inns, shops and to the Upper Wharfdale Museum (entrance not included).

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is an authentic steam railway which runs through the heart of West Yorkshire's Brontë Country. Lovingly preserved, the line was used in the film "The Railway Children" and countless other TV and cinema period dramas. We have free time in Oxenhope where you may like to visit the museum. NB: Some early and late departures may be on the Embsay to Bolton Abbey Steam Railway instead due to the non operation of the KWV Railway.
