YANT Holidays

Every year we organise some six or seven holidays, one or two to continental Europe, the rest within Britain, using coach, train, air or boat travel.

Recent destinations have included the Scottish Highlands, Pembroke, London, Edinburgh, Paris and the Loire Valley, as well as a Rhine river cruise.  

We also arrange an annual tour every February to escape the worst of the British winter, to somewhere in the Mediterranean such as Malta or Morocco, Rome or the Riviera.  

On all tours we are able to offer an unusually high proportion of single rooms.

All holidays are accompanied by an experienced tour leader and include visits to National Trust and other houses, beautiful gardens, art galleries and places of special interest. Before dinner on the first night we hold a drinks reception where newcomers are introduced to regular travellers, from whom they receive a warm welcome.

All departures start from Memorial Gardens, Leeman Road. On return, coaches will stop, if possible, at York Railway Station (to enable members to obtain taxis or buses home) and then at Memorial Gardens. For train journeys members will meet at and depart from York Station.

All tours are operated in conjunction with Brightwater Holidays

a licensed and fully bonded tour operator of high repute.


Full details of the following year's tours are published in a special programme included with the September Newsletter, published at the end of August.
