See the places described so vividly by the famous veterinary surgeon and author James Herriot (Alf Wight).
Visit the fascinating Herriot Museum, set in the original Kirkgate vetinary practice and home of Alf Wight for many years. The house and surgery have been recreated as they would have been in the 1940's.

Tour the dramatic and extensive remains of Rievaulx Abbey, once one of the most powerful medieval monasteries in Britain. Set in the beautiful Rye valley.
In the afternoon visit Castle Howard, a 17th century baroque masterpiece, conceived by Charles Howard, the 3rd Earl of Carlisle. The house is surrounded by extensive parkland and formal gardens, where peacocks roam. It remains the private residence of the Howard family.

Late afternoon we will travel to the historic Roman city of York for an early evening tour of the old city centre and the magnificent York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals of its time. It is described to be an architectural masterpiece, housing the most complete collection of medieval stained glass in Britain
You may wish to spend your evening in one of York's theatres, or go on a guided ghost tour of old York.

Then on to the university town of Cambridge with colleges such as Trinity founded by Henry VIII, and Corpus Christi with its impressive medieval court. A guided evening tour if you wish or simply wonder among the magnificent colleges. To walk along the banks of the river Cam on a summer evening is an experience to treasure.
