A visit to the orignal Emmerdale film-set of Esholt followed by a fascinating 2 hour gentle walking tour of Emmerdale Village as it is today, showing you scenes from behind the set of one of our favourite soaps.
The live, working TV set located within the Harewood Estate in Leeds, that has played witness to many-a spectacle, will open its gates as cast and crew down scripts for the weekend and allow guests to tread the tarmac and indulge in a fully guided tour of the popular, fictional village.
Visitors will be able to marvel at the beauty the picturesque farming village boasts as they meander down the lane to the surreal sight of stone cladded shops and homes nestled amongst the rolling hills.
Sauntering past the familiar haunts of Home Farm, Bob’s Café, The Woolpack, the village Church and rows of stone cottages known as home for over 43 years to your favourite Emmerdale characters, guides will share secrets, stories and reveal fascinating facts behind the making of the, multi award winning, ITV soap.
Emmerdale village as it is today, was purpose built in the grounds of Harewood House over 17 years ago after the programme’s former location of Esholt became so popular with visitors, filming scenes became impossible. Until now, its secluded and somewhat secret new home has been steeped in security to stop general public access.
We will also visit the village of Esholt - the original film set beforehand.
