COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Travel north to Durham making suitable comfort stops along the way, including a stop in Wetherby for lunch to be purchased. We arrive at the hotel where we have a cup of tea/coffee on arrival followed by time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 2 After breakfast spend the morning at leisure in Durham. There are many shops to browse and plenty of restaurants to purchase lunch. Afterwards, head back to the hotel to get ready for our banquet and travel to Lumley Castle early evening. Standing proud for more than 600 years, the magnificent spectacle of Lumley Castle dominates the County Durham landscape. Surrounded by beautiful parklands overlooking the River Wear, Lumley Castle is a magnificent monument to a bygone age of chivalry and honour. Live like lords and ladies of a bygone age and enjoy an evening of fun, laughter and merriment. Tuck into a 5-course banquet feast which includes a goblet of wine and mead. Be entertained by the lords and ladies of the court followed by the disco in the dungeon.
DAY 3 After breakfast travel north to visit the world famous Beamish Open-Air Museum. Experience amazing sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes as the past comes to life. Beamish is unique - these objects aren’t locked away in glass cases, this is hands-on history! Step into the past and explore the 350-acre site, as Beamish tells the story of the people of North East England in the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. We have a full day to explore everything on offer here before returning to the hotel for our evening meal.
DAY 4 After breakfast check out of the hotel and return to home area, stopping in Boundary Mills, Grantham for lunch to be purchased.
