Jurys Inn, Bradford
Departs: Fri 19th October, Price: £245, Single Supplement: £55
This tour focuses on the original towns and villages that were used as film sets for “Emmerdale Farm” and the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.
Our hotel is newly built and has 198 stylish rooms perfectly designed to provide our guests ultimate comfort away from home. The bedrooms are spacious and include well-lit work areas, en-suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries, flat screen TVs with Freeview, free WiFi, air-con and hair-dryers.
Day 1: Travel to Bradford.
Day 2: After breakfast this morning, we will begin our ‘Emmerdale’ inspired tour of the Yorkshire Dales. We will begin by visiting the charming market town of Otley (the fictional Hotton), which is situated in the beautiful countryside of Lower Wharfedale.
This delightful town has been a centre for TV and the film industry for many years. As we wander through the charming streets, we should recognize historical settings from ‘Emmerdale’… as well as from ‘Heartbeat’, ‘A Touch of Frost’ and ‘The Chase’.
To add to the charm of the town, Otley has its own bellman who walks around the town calling out the town’s news and events. We can then visit the beautiful village of Esholt where we can enjoy a pint and lunch (not included) in the original Woolpack Inn before exploring the village itself.
In 1975, Esholt was chosen as the village on which the exterior scenes of ‘Emmerdale’ were based. Esholt’s post office still exists and is exactly as it was when filming ended here in the mid 1990s.
Day 3: We travel to the Emmerdale TV studios at Harewood Estate in Leeds where the live, outdoor TV set is located. For a guided walking tour (approx 1.5 hours) of the exterior set of the popular, fictional village.
Day 4: Return to Waterside.
Included in cost: Coach travel, 3 nights half-board, porterage, tea/coffee after dinner. Entrance to the TV set.
