Private Day Trip to Whitby and the North York Moors from York

5 reviews
The North Yorkshire Moors National Park is one of England’s most enchanting destinations, but it can be hard to get around without your own transport. This private full-day tour from York includes a visit to the seaside town of Whitby, a steam train ride across the wild Yorkshire Moors, and stops in traditional market towns such as Pickering and Helmsley.

I am a big fan of the Yorkshire Vet hence why I was eager to visit. James Heriot and All Creatures Great and Small are a bit before my time however I really enjoyed my visit. We booked our tickets online which was easy and we visited for the first 10.00am slot. The staff were friendly and the COVID-19 protocol was in place which made my visit feel very safe. The tour went around the house, the veterinary surgery, the barn and the gardens, all of which were impressive. The house is like going back in time and the information provided about the historic veterinary practices was really interesting. The interactive room was great fun, especially the Yorkshire Vet quiz! My favourite part was the Yorkshire Vet room which included details of Mr & Mrs Green. The admission price represented good value for what was on offer. The whole place was well kept and cared for and the toilet facilities were very clean. The one negative was the Gift Shop which did not have much to offer. Overall, recommended for all ages.

Booked in advance to visit the museum, no queue when we arrived and visitor numbers appear to be well controlled in order that distancing can be observed. Was surprised by how small the original house is, both the 1970's and 2020 tv programmes show it much larger than it really is, the family really did live in the midst of the clients bringing in their cats and dogs. The information boards are well laid out, the short film is fine as are the interactive displays for the children and the old surgical instruments, not sure how the room for the Yorkshire vet really fits in with everything else, perhaps with the tv series having been resurrected in 2020 it might be better to use the room for that instead ?

Booking was confusing, and I managed to book twice, but they were ready for me, and the 2nd booking was credited to my card the same day. Very interesting journey through the house, brought back many memories of our youth and the way we lived as children, and memories of the tv series. Altogether an interesting place to visit, shame I got a speeding ticket from Yorkshire police through the post afterwards !
