Yorkshire Tours

A wonderful guide with the right car for you and well, there is no better way of exploring this wonderful county and all it has to offer.

For those of you who just want to immerse yourself in all things Yorkshire and discover it for the first time.

We offer days exploring country houses, breath taking scenery, castles, abbey ruins, or  the seaside and all it has to offer.

For those of you who want to explore a special interest we will work with you to create a day, or days to fit your needs and create wonderful memories.

We have worked with people to explore their interests in literature, medieval history, the country houses and landscaped gardens of the 17th Century, stories from the sea and for those who just want to follow in the footsteps of James Herriot.

We will collect you from your hotel, or railway station if you are travelling to Yorkshire for the day, and then drop you back at the appointed time.

The day will be punctuated with morning coffee overlooking wonderful views, lunches in country pubs or brilliant cafes, or perhaps a picnic on top of the world with afternoon teas in sumptuous tea rooms.  Whatever you choose there will always be an opportunity to sample local delicacies.

Bronte Tours prides itself in our ability to be flexible and in ensuring your comfort.

For those who would like a three of four day tour of Yorkshire then we are happy to work with you to find the best accommodation for you and to offer an exciting and memorable itinerary.

The best way forward is give us a call or send an email.

As an example of one of our popular day tours

The Southern Dales

The day begins with a visit to Bolton Abbey, the ruins of an Augustinian Priory which nestles on the banks of the River Wharfe on the estate of the Duke of Devonshire.  No matter what the season, or the weather, Bolton Abbey will take your breath away.

Driving into the Southern Dales the landscape begins to change to that of a classic limestone; lush greens, deep dales, field barns and dramatic outcrops.

We may stop for lunch in the Clarendon at Hebden, or the School Rooms before going along the Wharfe past Kilnsey and then over some dramatic hills to Malham Tarn, the Field Studies Centre and the most ferocious carnivorous plants, before dropping down to have a gentle wander around the famous cove and finding some afternoon tea in the village.

Homeward bound will take us to Skipton, an agricultural town with markets, a castle and the story of Lady Anne.

But if stories of Richard III are your interest then after Kilnsey we would go on to Kettlewell and then drive along one of the most beautiful dales roads through coverdale and up to Middelham and the famous castle.

In terms of planning it is wise to remember that Yorkshire is England’s largest county and there is a limit to how much we can do in a day and often less is definitely more.
