North York Moors, Whitby, Durham, & Harrogate

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be flying into Manchester on 15 May. We will pick up a rental car and will have the next 6 days open. We need to be in the vicinity of Leeds, Bradford, and Brighouse by the following Wednesday, 22 May.

A friend suggested driving from Manchester to the Whitby area and the North York Moors National Park. He said Whitby was a whaling village on the east coast. If we stop there for a few nights, I think we would like to take a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway that runs from Whitby to Pickering and back. From there during the rest of the week, I would like to see Durham and Harrogate before returning to the Brighouse area.

I would appreciate comments from folks who have visited these places, know something of the drive times, etc. I also would like to try to avoid changing our sleep stops every night. Being in Durham on Sunday, 19 May would be great so we can attend services at Durham Cathedral.

We are both 68, love history and music, and enjoy photography. Thanks in advance for help in planning this part of our UK visit.
