The city of York has so, so much to offer for any tourist. This hotspot, voted The Times’ best place to live in the UK in 2018, provides the setting for a beautiful getaway. The compact walled city is half the size of Leeds and less than two hours away from the northern heights of Newcastle and the capital of London. The little romantic and historical city of York is a must for any tourist – whether you currently reside in the UK or are travelling from further afield.

Travelling with dogs – a car with a white dog leaning out of the window
Body

When we are buying a new car, there are many aspects which we look at; fuel consumption and engine size to name but two. However, do you ever consider how they can transport your animals? After all, while the stereotypical average family has 2.4 children, almost half of UK households also include a pet. And yes, you’ve guessed it, the most popular animal in our home is a dog. Twenty-six per cent of us have a canine companion, meaning that we must pick our cars wisely, taking our furry friends into consideration when planning days out and holidays.

Gloucestershire & Warwick Railway
Body

Gloucestershire & Warwick Railway - The Friendly Line in the Cotswolds offers a unique opportunity to sample train travel from 50 years ago.  The world was changing rapidly and so on our 29 mile round trip you can sample the glory of steam and those “new” diesel railcars with the panoramic views – and for the children (young and old!) those seats right behind the driver to see what he sees.  Large diesel locos also haul some services.
