A long weekend is planned in Harrogate for the 18th October. Accommodation is booked at the Crown Plaza Hotel, and trips to York, Masham Brewery, Heritage Railway and the north Yorkshire moors are planned.
Our last day trip was to the Sapphire Distillery in Hampshire; after an interesting tour around the site (formerly Portals bank note printing works) we consumed some gin based cocktails. A short coach ride took us to lunch in Winchester, and for some a visit to the cathedral.
A visit to Duxford aircraft museum is planned for the 19th September, two days before the Battle of Britain flying display, so we may see some of the planes flying too!
