Enjoy a morning in the heart of York, exploring York’s Minster Quarter and the historic Shambles, before taking a fascinating and informative guided tour through the story of York’s confectionery heritage at York’s Chocolate Story. After your group tour, why not indulge in the country’s finest chocolate in the shop and Chocolate Café before journeying just fifteen miles north of York to spend the afternoon at Castle Howard, a magnificent 18th century residence set within 1,000 acres of sweeping parkland in the Howardian Hills, just a stone’s throw from the A64 to Scarborough.
Home to the Howard family for more than 300 years, the house offers a treasure trove of inspiring architecture, interiors and world-famous collections.
There is so much to enjoy in the grounds and breath-taking gardens whatever the time of year, from a tranquil lakeside stroll to a walk through enchanting woodland, or time to relax in the 18th century walled garden.
