Kingston Upon Hull - Heartbeat Country

Depart the port of Hull today for a drive through some of Yorkshire’s finest countryside to the small North York Moors town of Pickering. Here you will embark the enchanting North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a picturesque steam train journey through the National Park to the tiny village station at Goathland.

Goathland has been immortalised by the TV show Heartbeat, in which it was re-named Aidensfield. Your guide will show you this village and its small Heartbeat museum and point out the familiar sights of the Aidensfield pub and more. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photographs.

Continue your journey on to the charming fishing port of Whitby where many scenes from Heartbeat have been filmed – your guide will be pleased to point these sites out to you. The old town and it’s cobbled streets and the ‘One Hundred and Ninety Nine steps’ up to Whitby Abbey that overlooks the town are particularly worth visiting. Whitby is also home to the Heartbeat Exhibition for all die-hard fans! Enjoy some free time here and visit any of the many local eateries at your leisure for lunch. Later this afternoon meet back up with your guide and return to your coaches for the return journey along the scenic coastal route to Hull and you awaiting ship.
