Immerse yourself in the bucolic splendor of rural England. Yorkshire provides a timeless journey through quaint traditions and gloriously green landscapes, taking you from Victorian market towns to Roman cities, stately homes to colorful fishing villages. For these nine days, you enter an iconic canvas, lost amidst a land where almost everything feels frozen in time. On this Yorkshire tour, expect to see an unseen side of England, one that fulfills many of its rustic and charming preconceptions.
York – A Traditional Dinner in the Roman City
York offers an enticing welcome to Yorkshire, carrying its two millennia of history with considerable pride. After landing at Manchester Airport, it's a 90-minute transfer by road to the historic city. You cross the Pennines, the great spine of hills that runs through Northern England, before roaming across bucolic farming pastures towards York. For an introduction to Yorkshire, there's no better way than a traditional pub, a roaring log fire, and a roast dinner with Yorkshire puddings. Other than fish and chips, this is England's most iconic meal, one that used to be reserved for Sunday afternoons after church. A giant bowl of baked batter is the centerpiece (the Yorkshire pudding), filled with a supply of roasted organic vegetables and a freshly carved lamb joint. While you can eat Yorkshire puddings all over the country, few can rival the place where it all began. After all, the locals don't like to share their ancient recipes.
