We're going to York for a few days next week for my birthday treat :j I've got a few fun things booked/planned on the itinerary
We will be 'commuting' in from Paradise Pods in Storwood. Can anyone recommend a good park and ride coming from that area? Is there generally plenty of space or should we be up and out early (not a problem on this hols as am pregnant so not drinking!) Or is there a bus from Selby into York city centre?
Also, for any local York(/shire) people, here is our rough itinerary for general comment - in case there's anything I've missed! We will have our 11 year old with us.
Mon - Check into pods between 4 and 6pm, drive/bus into York, dinner booked at 7pm in York.
Tues - Yorvik museum (11am entry booked), lunch out, 3pm slot at DIG archeology experience, York ghost bus tour at 6pm
Weds - York Minster in morning, Afternoon Tea at Countess of York @12pm (booked), couple of hours in railway museum, planning on booking York Dungeons tour at about 4/4.30pm.
Thurs - North Yorks steam train - Pickering to Whitby. Managed to get a family ticket for £34! Drive to Pickering in the morning, train to Whitby, see Whitby Abbey, lunch out in Whitby, then either Captain Cook or Whitby Museum. Train home then supper in eco pod.
Fri - check out of eco pods, day out in Yorkshire Dales - any ideas!?, check into spa hotel in Harrogate, venture out for dinner
Sat - Day out at Stockeld Park, picnic lunch, book somewhere nice in/nr Harrogate for supper
Sun - breakfast and then drive home!
