Harrogate Coach Holiday Weekend: Sunday 28th April – Thursday 2nd May 2024


Our destination is the 115-bed historic Crown Hotel in Harrogate. The hotel is situated just
north of the town centre on the edge of the Montpellier District to make us feel at home. The
town centre, Betty’s Tearooms and a Wetherspoons in the old Winter Gardens are all close 
at hand. The renowned Valley Gardens with its themed gardens, floral displays and historic 
buildings is just round the corner. The town is well situated for walking, being close to Lower 
Wharfedale and Nidderdale. In addition, there is an abundance of nearby attractions such as 
Fountains Abbey, Bolton Abbey, Ripley Castle, Harlow Carr Gardens, Harewood House, and 
Knaresborough Town/Castle. The cost of the weekend will be £375 for those sharing a twin 
or double room, which includes four nights half board accommodation, coach travel, the 
services of the driver all weekend, and tips. There is a single room supplement of £25/night, 
giving a total of £475 for one of these. There are eight single rooms available, which will be 
allocated by ballot, and twenty double/twin rooms.

Club 80th Birthday Celebration – Saturday 20 August 2022


To celebrate our 80th birthday 61 members took part in one of three different length walks around the reservoirs of Witcombe and, for the two
longer walks, on to Cranham.  We were lucky that the heat of the previous weekend had abated, and we had good walking weather.   Afterwards around 100 current and past members of the club met up for a party.  We heard how our founder, Harold Chipp, organised the initial club walks in 1942 using trains for transport, and how he was amazed to find a platform full of people waiting to go on the first walk!
