Reviews for Yorkshire guided hiking vacation, The Prior Richard Way


review 11 Jul 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The beautiful Lock House in Boroughbridge and the last day of walking including. Fountains Abbey was the best part because of the landscape being more interesting.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring your best walking shoes. There is a lot of walking on asfalt, but still you need waterproof shoes because of the many crossings of fields.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, only small local companies were visited during our walk.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Tony and Rachel took really good care of us during our walk. We did not miss anything.

Hilde - Thank you for your feedback about Lock House and your final day along the quiet river bank and canal path, it really is a joyful day's walk. Your observation shows that the landscape of the Prior Richard Way changes between leaving York, along the original Roman Road route and then through the Vale of York towards the more undulating location of the Skell Valley where Fountains Abbey is situated. Yes, the terrain that the monks' route follows is now quite varied e.g. asphalt where the original roman road surface no longer exists, gravel tracks, quiet country lanes, and beautiful countryside paths and fields. It's surprising how wet the dew fall on the grass can be sometimes.
