One of England's Treasure Houses, Harewood House is the family seat of the Lascelles family, built in the 18th century for Edwin Lascelles. In the 20th century, the house was lived in by Princess Mary, the only daughter of George V, after she married Henry Lascelles in 1922.

Harewood Estate occupies a beautiful rural setting, with 100 acres of gardens, including the Lakeside Bird Gardens. During the festive season, visitors will experience beautifully decorated festive rooms, across the State Floor and below stairs. We include a light lunch here with time to explore Harewood House and grounds before we make our way to RHS Glow at Harlow Carr.

The festive season will come to alive with a magical early evening visit to RHS Garden Harlow Carr. See the garden in breathtaking beauty as amazing illuminations light your way on the spectacular Glow Trail. You can explore the gardens after dark as the annual light festivities transform the garden into an enchanted wonderland.

Grassington is a small market town in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, home to the fictional market town of Darrowby in the series 'All Creatures Great & Small'. With a quaint market square surrounded by shops and cafés, it is truly worthy of a visit.

The next stop is Haworth, a quaint little village with cobbled streets lined with shops, pubs and cafés. It is also renowned as the literary home of the Bronté sisters. After our visit, we head to Haworth station to board the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, on the Festive Flyer.

The Festive Flyer departs from Haworth and steams towards ‘The North Pole’ of the Worth Valley, Oxenhope Station. Stepping off your steam-hauled express and onto the gaslit platform at Oxenhope Station, there will be plenty that will get you in the Christmas Spirit! Visit the Christmas Market, pick up a little treat, and enjoy the live Christmas music. After spending time here we re-board the train to return to Haworth station. Our coach returns us to the hotel for dinner this evening.
