York is the ideal destination for a festive day trip, and that's what we've got lined up today. The city's historic core is a fantastically well-preserved relic of medieval design, with its crown jewel being the sprawling York Minster Cathedral. After a guided tour of all the key sights, you'll have some time to yourself to get some lunch and explore the ancient streets – many of them decked out in their Christmas finery. Later, we'll gather once again to enjoy dinner at the hotel.

Meals Included: B, L, D

Festive spirit will be in abundance today, as we enjoy a wonderful Christmas lunch together at the hotel. Afterwards you can simply relax and enjoy your surroundings, or perhaps choose to walk into the Victorian heart of Harrogate. In the evening, we'll all meet up again for a light meal.

Day 4 Boxing Day, Wetherby Races

Accommodation Name: Crowne Plaza Harrogate

Meals Included: B, D

After a leisurely breakfast and some free time in the morning, thrills and spills will be on the agenda today, as we head off to the traditional market town of Wetherby for an afternoon at the races. You might fancy a flutter, or just want to pick a favourite to cheer on – either way, the atmosphere will be electric as we watch the incredible horses and riders take on the course.
Afterwards, we'll head back to the hotel, where we'll share our farewell meal together.

  • Who will be my travelling companions on the tour?

    All the people in your group will be solo travellers and will share your sense of adventure and passion for travel. There’s usually a good mix of ages too, so you’ll meet a variety of solo travellers who have more, or in some cases less, life experience. We find the overall mix of people really adds to the whole experience and there are certainly plenty of l

  • Am I contributing to any charity by booking the tour?

    A few years ago we set up Just You Cares, a programme that gives back to some of the places we love. We have always believed in taking care of the communities we visit, and have taken the time to really get to know the local people and understand the challenges they face. Some of our holidays give our Customers the chance to see how the money from their trips has been spent.

  • What Ethical Travel credentials does the tour company have?

    At Just You, we are committed to operating our business operations responsibly, with integrity and always act ethically in all our business dealings and relationships. We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place in our own business or in any of our supply chains

  • What happens if I need to change my holiday date once I’ve booked?

    If we can accommodate a change in date - we will always do our best to help you. Just pick up the phone and ask one of our friendly advisors - just make sure you have your booking number to hand.

  • Will the accommodation included meet local health and safety regulations?

    Yes, and all of our accommodation providers will be working to the very highest standards of hygiene – you already always enjoy a private room of your own on all of our trips, all of our partners will be guided by local government operational standards of hygiene and the new protocols we have issued to them.

  • Will I eat alone?

    We find there’s always a social element to dining, so you’ll never eat alone, unless you want to! Every holiday includes a welcome get-together, all breakfasts and many other meals. When a meal is not included we find travellers meet and dine together.

    No, given the nature of our holidays, it is not possible to join the tour once it has departed.

    Just You has been operating solo holidays for more than 15 years.

  • Am I guaranteed a room of my own?

    Of course, you’ll always have a twin or double room all to yourself. It’s great to have that space to relax and reflect at the end of the day. In some hotels you can also pay a little extra to upgrade for more space or a lovely sea view.

  • What is the typical age range on a Just You holiday?

    Typically, our customers are solo travellers in their 40s, 50s and 60s, but it’s quite possible you could meet 20-year-olds or 70-year-olds (or anyone in between)... After all, age is just a number!

  • What policies are in place for Covid-19?

    We have received the World Travel and Tourism Councils (WTTC) Safe Travels stamp, which recognises businesses and destinations worldwide that have adopted a new set of global protocols to support the return of 'Safe Travel' around the world. The 'Safe Travels' stamp provides you, with assurance and peace of mind that we have implemented enhanced health and hygiene prprotocols on all holidays.

  • What documents will I receive before I travel?

    Once you book, you will receive a confirmation invoice within 7 days, prior to departure, we will send you further information to help prepare for your trip.

  • Do you operate a “single share” option and how does it work?

    Just You is exclusively for solo travellers, every tour includes a twin or double room of your own, with no single supplement.

I have enjoyed two Just You holidays and find your Reps to be helpful and well informed. I met some interesting, strong and personable ladies on this Xmas trip. Our Rep was excellent in every way. Our hotel was Characterful - some of the rooms were a little quirky, but perfectly acceptable. I had to request coathangers, as there were only two, but they were delivered promptly.
