Day Trip

Looking for a Christmas day out for you and a loved one, or a special gift? You've found it! Join Fox & Edwards Events on a superb day out to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, including a steam train trip on a world-famous railway, before heading to Castle Howard.

We meet at a central location in York, with plenty of charged car parking spaces, leaving at 9:00 on our heritage coach.

We'll head over the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, which you'll get great views of from our picture-windowed heritage coach. Our first stop is Goathland, where we board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway steam train to Pickering. This world-famous railway offers simply stunning views and will cast our minds back to a Christmas past. The railway was recently the star of the 'Downton Abbey' movie, too!

From Pickering, we move on to Castle Howard. This iconic Yorkshire stately home is described as 'one of the great palaces of Europe' and was built in the early 1700s. It has featured in dramas such as ITV's Victoria. During our visit, it will be 'dressed to the nines' for Christmas. This year, the house will be decorated by Charlotte Lloyd Webber, on the theme of 'Christmas Masquerade' to celebrate the house's theatrical roots. We will spend three hours here, in which time you will be free to wander the house and enjoy a drink and cake in the Fitzroy Restaurant.

We return to York for 16:30 approximately.

Our trips are 'inclusive'! This means that your admission tickets to Castle Howard and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway are included in your ticket price. Food is not included.

Tickets are £60 per person for this excursion - Save 20% and get tickets for just £48 when you use the discount code WTY

If you simply wish to enjoy a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and on our heritage coach, you can purchase a ticket for this experience for £25. You will board at Pickering at 9:45, head to Goathland on our heritage coach and then return by steam train for 12:00.
