Tour and Tasting at Holmfirth Vineyard
Train journey from Keighley to Haworth
Boat Trip into Standedge Tunnel
Our day begins with a visit to Holmfirth Vineyard where we tour the vineyard learning about the grapes before we enjoy a tasting of 3 English wines – a red, rose and white.
We continue into the village of Holmfirth, home of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’.
This morning we travel to Keighley where we join the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway for a steam train journey through the Worth Valley to Haworth.
One of the finest heritage railways in the country, the line is best remembered for the 1970 film, The Railway Children.
We have free time in haworth to explore the cobbled main street with its art galleries, an array of places to eat and drink and shops.
Today we depart for Marsden to visit Britain’s longest canal tunnel Standedge Tunnel. At 3¼ miles long and over 200 years old.
Typical cargoes included wool, coal and horse manure! Included is a 30 minute boat trip into the tunnel, one of the entertaining guides will thrill you with tales of folk who designed, built and worked in it. There is also an exhibition centre and café.
After time for lunch here we take a scenic drive back to the hotel over the bleak but beautiful saddleworth Moor.
Smart modern hotel with extensive facilities located on the outskirts of Huddersfield.
