Friday.We make our way to Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters. Visit the Bronte Parsonage and explore the cobbled Main Street. Nearby Oakworth was the station used in the original ‘The Railway Children’ film and the station is unchanged from that time. We have a scenic ride over Oxenhope Moor to Hebden Bridge, in Calderdale. This region features in ‘Last Tango in Halifax’, and we make our way along the picturesque dale into Halifax and back.B, D
Day 3 Saturday
Travel to Leeds and the Emmerdale Studio Experience. The former ITV studios showcase the entire ‘lights-camera-action’ process of producing an episode of Emmerdale. From here we head for Wharfedle and to Otley, ‘Hotton’ in the series, continuing to Esholt, where the show was filmed for decades. Wander around the sleepy lanes and enjoy seeking out familiar sights in this beautiful corner of Yorkshire. Whilst in Esholt we enjoy a drink at ‘The Woolpack’ and later we continue to the hotel for dinner.B, D
Day 4 Sunday
Morning visit to the National Media Museum, six floors of TV and film memorabilia. From here we drive to Holmfirth, home of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. Familiar scenes include Sid’s Cafe and Nora Batty’s steps.B, D
Day 5 Monday
After breakfast we journey home.B
West Yorkshires villages and towns continue to play a starring role in TV productions. This break visits some of the locations featured in more recent productions such as the acclaimed Last Tango in Halifax, and also includes a visit to the superb National Media Museum. And, completely new, is the outstanding attraction in Leeds, the Emmerdale Studio Experience. Lots of good reasons to have a 5 day tour to see it all.
