Wallking Weekend in Leeds    2012
Walking / Activity Weekend 2012
The Walking Weekend with a difference........
Your Sports Officer has come up with a splendid notion for this annual event based on a successful trip by luxury coach undertaken by the Lowestoft Rotary Club.
Suggested itinerary is as follows :
Friday :

Travel to Leeds in time for a visit to the Royal Armouries before staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel formerly The Golden Lion (TBC)

We travel over Wadsworth Moor on our way to Haworth, where the Bronte Parsonage was the setting for the Doctor's Surgery in The Railway Children as was the station at Oakworth. As a special treat we have included a ride on this famous TV railway which in reality was the beautifully preserved Keighley & Worth Line. We return via Esholt original home of Emmerdale where the long running TV series was filmed for over twenty years and where it is still possible to visit the 'Woolpack Inn' today.


York Boat Daytime City Cruises operate everyday giving you the opportunity to see the sights of York in comfort whatever the weather! Sit back, relax and enjoy a drink from the bar as the sights of York city and country sail by onboard a 45 minute sightseeing cruise with informative live Captain's commentary (admission included). In the afternoon visit the National Railway Museum or York Minster one of northern Europe's greatest gothic cathedrals You'll see traces of every age from the Roman occupation of York onwards to the future of this working and worshipping church.
