Weekend Tour to Leeds/West Yorkshire

06 May 2017

Weekend Tour to West Yorkshire - Glasgow Departure.

Stuart’s of Carluke will provide the vehicle for this tour, which will depart from Cowcaddens Road, Glasgow on the north side of Buchanan Bus Station at 09:00 on the Saturday.

We propose to head directly to the Premier Inn, Leeds East, where I have secured some rooms at a cost of £81 per room for the night (£40.50 per person if sharing) – a modest increase from last year. A full English breakfast is available for £8.99 per person, as is a Continental, priced at £6.99. The restaurant next to the hotel serves dinner for those who wish to dine nearby. The hotel’s website is http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/west-yorkshire/leeds/leeds-east.html

 Having checked in, participants will have free time for the remainder of the day.

 On the Sunday, we plan to visit some of the following premises as time permits: TransDev at Harrogate, Harrogate Coach Travel, Yorkshire Pullman and Reliance Coaches. There will also be a stop for lunch in Harrogate. We should arrive back at Cowcaddens Road, Glasgow by 20:00 following a stop-off in Edinburgh an hour earlier.

 The fare will be £40.00, payable at the time of booking. Those wishing to take part should complete the enclosed booking slip and return it to me not later than Monday 10th April, 2017 with a remittance of £40.00. Cheques should be made payable, please, to “The Omnibus Society”. Alternatively, you may e-mail me the information per the booking slip and I shall reply with details on how you can send your remittance electronically (which will allow me to check who has paid before I pass the funds on to the Branch Treasurer).

 Please note that the vehicle for this tour does not comply with the Disability Discrimination Act.
