Head out on a Calendar Girls trike tour with the fabulous team at Yorkshire Trike Tours to see the best of the Yorkshire Dales and filming locations from the iconic film all on one thrilling tour.
“If you love the Calendar Girls movie and you love the Yorkshire Dales, this is the tour for you. Zooming around on the back of a trike offers the open-air feeling of being on a bike, combined with the stability of being in a car. Jason’s expert commentary is fabulous – he’s met many of the Calendar Girls and has even taken the original Miss October, Trisha Stewart out on tour, so there are plenty of anecdotes about the film along the way.”James & Lyndsey, Yorkshire's Best Adventures
What Yorkshire Trike Tours say:
You have wept at the film, laughed at the stage show and sang along to the musical The Girls written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth – well now you can take the trike tour.
With the musical hitting the West End in January 2017, interest in the famous true story of about the amazing women of Rylestone & District WI, who created the groundbreaking calendar back in 2000. “We are going to need considerably bigger buns,” they said at the time.
The tour takes in some of the popular film-set locations and moorland scenery used in the making of the blockbuster film the Calendar Girls
Sights along the way include the Blue Garage ran by Tim Curry in the film and where Tricia Stewart (Helen Mirren) first spotted a nude calendar to give her the inspiration for what became the smash hit phenomena, as well as the M&S from which she bought a Victoria sponge to enter into a local cake baking competition – which she won of course.
Don’t just take our word for it though. After her tour, Tricia Stewart said: “The Yorkshire Trike Tour has got to be the ONLY way to experience Calendar Girl Country offering freedom, fresh air, and the feeling of being at one with the world.”
