Eurotour de Yorkshire
GCCG will be hosting Eurotour in the UK on 19-22 May 2023.
The GCCG welcomes you to the historic county of Yorkshire for the 2023 Eurotour. Yorkshire, famous for its breath-taking beauty, is colloquially known as God’s Own Country. Many iconic TV series and films have been set in Yorkshire, unsurprisingly as the county has some of the most spectacular driving roads with breath-taking views and vistas.
The natural beauty contrasts well with the dark satanic mills of the industrial revolution. One of which is still working and still steaming you will visit during the tour. It is one of the best last-remaining examples of a water-powered mill in Britain. Originally built in 1823 it is now fully restored.
Expect to be awe-inspired by a grand Victorian country house, with its contents and gardens, lived in and adapted by the same family over three generations. The hall stands at the heart of the gardens newly laid out around it in the 1860s and overlooks its historic park and wider estate landscape.
If you love art, you’ll love your visit to the leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture, which features both open-air and indoor galleries, set within 500 acres of 18th-century landscape.
For the more mechanical, you’ll see 49 aircraft spanning the development of aviation from 1853 up to the latest GR4 Tornado at one of the largest independent air museums in Britain. It is also the only Allied Air Forces Memorial in Europe.
After all this excitement you can socialise, eat, and relax in the historic spa mansion hotel with acres of landscaped gardens. And come the evenings, we will have plenty of entertainment for your enjoyment!
