Experience ‘Emmerdale’ at the studio experience

Eeh by gum! You can’t visit Yorkshire wi’out a trip to Emmerdale. I mean, it’s not strictly true and we won’t hold you to it, but if you do like the Yorkshire soap then it makes sense to visit! It’s located on Burley Road in Leeds, about 20 miles from our hotel in York. The tour lasts 1 hour and 50 minutes, and you’ll get to see how stunts are created, as well as finding out how they put an episode together. Tickets cost £23.50 for adults and £12.50 for children, and can be booked via their website.
