Meet your coach and travel to Belfast. Join the early morning ferry crossing to Cairnryan where we will be transferred to our hotel in Bradford.
After breakfast we leave the hotel for “The Emmerdale Studio Experience” that showcases the “lights-camera-action” process of creating an episode of Yorkshire’s favourite soap. We get a glimpse into how the cast tell the gripping stories and capture the stunts you see on TV. We then visit the Victorian Spa town of Harrogate for some free time to explore the centre.
Today we follow in the footsteps of the soap-stars as we visit the outdoor Emmerdale village set*. When the cameras stop rolling, the gates open as cast and crew down scripts for the weekend to allow you to enjoy an exclusive tour of the village. On returning to the hotel we visit the village of Esholt, formerly Emmerdale’s Beckindale and the original Woolpack Pub.
On the homebound journey we visit the town of Skipton. Monday is market day and has been voted the UK’s “Best Small Outdoor Market 2017”. Then onwards to Cairnryan to join the evening ferry crossing to Belfast. On arrival, you return to your original starting point.
NOTE: * The Emmerdale Village Tour is subject to planning permission and ITVs filming schedule which might run on over the weekend. Due to the uneven terrain, this tour is not wheelchair friendly and those with walking difficulties may struggle with its duration.
