Over to Holmfirth, Last of the Summer wine country, with free time before continuing across the Pennines to Saddleworth where we enjoy a leisurely late afternoon cruise along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal through beautiful scenery complete with tea and scone.
The 'Quay to Sea' 3 hour cruise is a fantastic way to see the changing face of the River Tyne from the best vantage point in town.

On your cruise you will see the legendary shipyards of Tyneside.
