North York Moors, Whitby, Durham, & Harrogate

Jump to last reply

My wife & I will be flying to Manchester, England on Wednesday, 15 May, arriving in the middle of the day. We will pick up a rental car at the airport. We have the next 6 days free and need to be in the Brighouse area on the following Wednesday, 22 May.

We have visited York in the past and a friend suggested heading NE toward the east coast and a town called Whitby. From Whitby, I would like to ride the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Whitby to Pickering and return. Other places we would like to see are Durham and Harrogate. We would prefer to be in Durham on Sunday, 19 May, in order to attend services at Durham Cathedral.

We are both 68 and do not have any difficulty in driving in the UK but I would prefer not changing our sleep stops every night. It would be good if we can spend at least 2 nights in the same place. Maybe Durham could be Saturday and Sunday nights, 18 & 19 May. I'm not sure how long it would take to get from the Manchester Airport to Whitby so we might have to stop in York on Wednesday and then spend Thursday and Friday nights in Whitby. Friday would probably have to be the "steam train" day.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. We usually look for B&B's for our lodging.
