Historic Royal Palaces

This break sees us visit one of the most famous buildings in the world. The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are used extensively by The Queen and the Royal Family to receive and entertain guests of State, ceremonial and official occasions. The Palace’s nineteen State Rooms reflect the taste of George IV, who commissioned the architect John Nash to transform Buckingham House into a grand palace. Today the State Rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Van Dyck and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, exquisite pieces of Sèvres porcelain, and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

Why not combine your visit to London with a visit to two of the Historic Royal Palaces owned by Her Majesty the Queen? ‘The Tower of London’ despite its grim reputation as a Medieval Palace and a powerful fortress, is a sight not to be missed & don’t forget the magnificent Crown Jewels! ‘Kensington Palace’ which was home to Diana, Princess of Wales & Queen Victoria has been newly renovated for you to discover its history and explore its amazing sights.

London Eye & River Cruise

Hatfield & Knebworth House

A spectacular panoramic view across London is not to be missed, from our flight on the EDF London Eye.

This weekend break sees us visit two of the finest stately homes and gardens in England. Hatfield House offers superb examples of Jacobean craftsmanship such as the Grand Staircase with its fine carving and the rare stained glass window in the private chapel. Displayed throughout the House are many historic mementos collected over the centuries by the Cecils, one of England’s foremost political families.

A journey on the world’s largest observation wheel in our nation’s capital and a cruise on one of the most famous rivers in the world, guaranteed to make your visit to London a most memorable one indeed!

Knebworth House with its turrets, domes and gargoyles silhouetted against the sky does little to prepare visitors for what to expect inside. The House has stood for many years longer than the Victorian decoration suggests and the stucco hides from view a red brick house dating back to the Tudor times. Knebworth is an extraordinary walk through 500 years of British history. Stories and heirlooms relect the family’s contribution to literature, politics & foreign service and visits by characters as diverse as Charles Dickens & Winston Churchill.

The brochure is merely a guide for you to make your holiday choice and we cannot accept responsibility for changes that may occur. YORKSHIRE ROSE HOLIDAYS CUSTOMER PROMISE 1, THE PRICE OF YOUR HOLIDAY The price of your holiday is guaranteed and will not be subject to any surcharges except for those resulting from fuel costs, government action, including additional bonding or licensing requirements and VAT. In all cases we reserve the right to pass these amounts on in full. Holiday prices include all coach travel, hotel accommodation and meals as specified in the holiday description and VAT at the current rate where applicable. Morning coffee, afternoon tea and other refreshments are not included unless otherwise stated. Some hotels may make a small additional charge for any porterage and tea or coffee served after a meal. Gratuities to the hotel staff and driver/courier are discretionary. 2, IF WE CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY It is necessary for there to be a minimum number of passengers on a tour in order for the tour to operate. In certain circumstances, therefore, we may have to cancel your holiday, and if this should occur we will return to you all moneis paid to us, or offer you a suitable alternative. However we will not normally cancel your holiday, a) immediately prior to the departure date unless you have not paid for your holiday in full. b) After the balance due date, except as a result of hostilities, political unrest or other circumstances amounting to force majeure, also including strike action. If we have to cancel your holiday at any time, Yorkshire Rose Holidays are liable only for any monies you may have paid to us at the time of cancellation. 3, OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU We accept responsibility for ensuring that all component parts of your holiday as described in our brochure are supplied to you to a reasonable standard. If any such part is not provided in the advertised manner, we will pay you reasonable compensation unless the non-provision was due to circumstances which we could not predict and which were beyond our control such as adverse weather, road or traffic conditions. Please remember that some amenities (e.g. hotel lifts, swimming pools, etc.) require servicing and cleaning and may not therefore be available at all times. Some services may be affected by weather conditions and their availability is entirely at the discretion of the provider of the service. Entertainment provided by hotels is frequently subject to demand and its nature and/or frequency may be varied if there is a lack of demand or insufficient numbers staying at the hotel. The published running times of services are estimates only and we will not be liable for any loss (howsoever caused) arising from delay or failure to operate services in accordance with published timings. HOLIDAY INFORMATION 1, CHILD REDUCTIONS On most holidays, reductions are available for children aged between 2 and 14 providing the child shares a room with 2 full fare paying passengers, although there are some variations. Please enquire at the time of booking. 2, LUGGAGE We ask you to keep luggage down to one suitcase per person measuring no more than 26in x 8in x 15in and weighing no more than 33lb (15kg).

A small holdall can be taken on board the coach. 3, WHEELCHAIRS / DISABLED PASSENGERS Wheelchairs must be flat folding due to space limitations. If you intend to take a wheelchair notification must be made to our office at the time of booking, or under the special requirements on the booking form so that necessary arrangements can be made to minimise discomfort. 4, SEAT ALLOCATION AND SPECIFICATION

On a holiday you may not: a) bring a pet or any other animal (other than guide dogs in the UK and EIRE only by prior arrangement) b) Play a radio/cassette player on a coach. c) Mobile telephones – for the comfort of other passengers we request the use of mobile phones is kept to a minimum while the coach is in motion. You are responsible for ensuring that you are at the correct departure point at the correct time, and we cannot be liable for any loss or expense suffered by passengers because of their late arrival at any departure point.

Seat requests can be made on most holidays when booking. However, since allocations are made on a first come, first served basis, early booking is advisable for preferred seats. There is a seating plan of the coach for each holiday, but it is possible that, on occasions, for operational reasons, a coach of different configuration may be used and we must therefore reserve the right to amend a seating plan and allocate seats other than those you have booked. We shall have no liability in relation to any such change of specification. Specific seats will not be allocated on feeder vehicles.

Yorkshire Rose Family Update Firstly an update on James’ travels; he was last spotted in America travelling around in a camper van but we think that he is now headed south to Mexico across the border! Steve is still on a weight loss mission from the wedding, he seems to lose a bit but it seems to keep on finding him! Alfie is just starting to talk and has learned how to say “bus” but David keeps telling him that it’s a “coach”. We have started to give him driving lessons (never too young to start at Yorkshire Rose!) and is well on his way to getting his licence!!!

David & Alfie

We are pleased to let you know that Steve’s nephew Adam has also joined the Yorkshire Rose family who many of you will meet during your trips this coming year.
