Enjoy a fabulous day tour travelling through the magnificent scenery of the heart of England on board the Midland Pullman to visit either historic York, or the seaside resort of Scarborough for a sightseeing afternoon break.

We travel along the East Coast route through Peterborough and Doncaster to our first stop at historic York where you may choose to alight. Alternatively, remain on board as we continue across the River Ouse and take the picturesque line past Kirkham Abbey and through Malton to the seaside resort of Scarborough.

York (5-hour break)

Nowhere in England says ‘medieval’ quite like York. A magnificent circuit of 13th-century walls encloses a medieval spider’s web of narrow streets. At its heart lies the immense, awe-inspiring York Minster, one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world. This modern, tourist-oriented city has a multitude of attractions including the Jorvik Centre and superb National Railway Museum.
