Book a Father's Day break
Be a train driver for the day on the Wensleydale Railway - one of the many treats available for Dad

If you want to really spoil Dad this Father's Day then why not book a special break at The Old Vicarage?

As well as spending quality family time together in the luxurious surroundings of this beautiful country home - with exclusive access to a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and tennis courts - there's plenty to do in the area for extra special treats.

Why not try out his nerve on the tree-top high ropes adventure course at Aerial Extreme or allow him to put his dream car (Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche - take your pick!) through its paces at the nearby Croft Circuit Race track?

If he likes watching racing on a different type of track then York racecourse is hosting the Macmillan Charity Race Day on Saturday 15th June. This popular horse race has raised over £5.5million since it started in 1971 and provides some fantastic racing entertainment.

Would-be train drivers can fulfill their childhood dreams by learning to drive an engine on the Wensleydale Railway - one of the longest heritage lines in the UK. As well as the regular steam-hauled and diesel services, there is also a Dixieland Jazz and Real Ale Train on the evening of Saturday 15th June.

The famous breweries in Masham (Theakston's and Black Sheep) both do guided tours and Bolton Castle in Wensleydale is hosting a Father's Day weekend, which amongst other activities offers the opportunity to try out archery or handle birds of prey. There is also the North Yorkshire County Show on the day itself, with all the fun of a traditional agricultural show, including exhibits, ring-side events, trade stands and entertainment.
