Day 1: The first stop you will be transported to is Saltaire, this well-preserved industrial village was created in 1851 by industrialist, philanthropist (and teetotaller) Titus Salt for the maximum benefit of his workers. Explore its textile mills, public buildings and workers' housing are built in a harmonious style of high architectural standards and the urban plan survives intact, giving a vivid impression of Victorian philanthropic paternalism, which in turn had a profound influence on developments in industrial social welfare and urban planning in the United Kingdom and beyond – including Italy and the United States.

The next stop is Haworth, you will have time to enjoy some lunch in the cobbled village, famous for its connection to the Bronte Sister. After lunch, visit The Brontë Parsonage Museum, it contains the world's most comprehensive collection of Brontë manuscripts, letters, early editions of the novels and poetry.

Day 2: Your 2nd world heritage site will be Studley Royal, one of the few great 18th-century gardens to survive pretty much in its original form and is one of the most spectacular water gardens in England. The landscape garden is an outstanding example of the development of the ‘English’ garden style throughout the 18th century, which influenced the rest of Europe.

It was designed around the equally spectacular ruins of Fountains Abbey, one of the few Cistercian houses to survive from the 12th century and providing an unrivalled picture of a great religious house in all its parts.

Day 3: Day 3 sees you visiting Durham, most attractive medieval towns, Durham, where you will visit Durham Castle & Durham Cathedral. Durham Cathedral, built between 1093 and 1133, is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Europe – and the first European cathedral to be roofed with stone-ribbed vaulting, which allowed for the construction of the pointed transverse arches and hey presto! the Gothic style of architecture was born. The site is also outstanding because of its political history: The Castle and Cathedral reflect the unique status of the Prince-Bishops of Durham. The Prince-Bishops were religious leaders who also had secular powers — they governed a virtually autonomous state that formed the buffer zone between England and Scotland from the late eleventh century until 1603. After visiting Durham, you will return to your starting point.
