'Reel' Locations - 'Emmerdale' & 'Last of the Summer Wine'
10th July 2017
This holiday focuses on the original towns and villages that were used as film sets for ‘Emmerdale Farm’ (as it was once known) from 1976 to 1998. After all, the Harewood Estate (where ‘Emmerdale’ is now filmed) is simply a recreation of the village of Esholt that became necessary when the increase in the popularity of the ‘soap’ drama resulted in disruption to the villagers’ daily lives. You can discover original buildings at your own pace without being denied access as a result of film shoot timings! For ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ fans there is also a trip to Holmfirth where you will join the Summer Wine Bus Tour for a 10-mile journey around the film locations. After the tour you can pay a visit to Sid’s Café or Compo’s House, now home to the hilarious, award winning ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ Exhibition. A short journey takes you to the Holmfirth Vineyard where you will embark on an informative tour of the winery and a wine tasting of three different wines. Excursions to the Worth Valley Railway for a nostalgic train journey and East Riddlesden Hall, used as a setting for the film adaptation of Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ are also included.
