Step aboard the Midland Pullman for a very special day tour through the spectacular Yorkshire Moors and Esk Valley to the historic fishing port of Whitby.


We travel to Middlesbrough, and into vast open moorland, meandering through the magnificent forests and dales of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with its picturesque villages of honey sandstone, embattled castles & historic abbeys to the ancient fishing town of Whitby, where around two hours will be available at your leisure.

The Esk Valley offers a succession of constant surprises and stunning views to the beautiful fishing port of Whitby with narrow-cobbled streets, bustling harbour and intriguing curio shops selling the famous Whitby jet jewellery. Perhaps climb the 199 steps from the old town up to the ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey dominating the skyline and inspired Bram Stoker to write his novel, Dracula.
