Royle Family dad and son Ricky Tomlinson and Ralf Little reunite for a heartwarming staycation exploring the sights and sounds of the north of England.
Setting out from Ricky’s home city of Liverpool, they embark on the first leg of the trip, heading to some Lancashire hotspots.
Ch2. Lake District
They explore the beauty of Cumbria on their quest to unearth the spirit of the north of England, with mint cake in Kendal, boating on Lake Windermere and a bet at Carlisle races.
Ricky and Ralf hit Yorkshire in their quest to find the true North, with a boxing session in Leeds, chocolate in York, curry in Bradford and ‘Dracula town’ Whitby on Halloween.
Ch4. Newcastle and Middlesbrough
The Royle campervan hits the North-East to visit the Angel of the North and a working coal mine, and to meet local pigeon-racers, food bank heroes and a football legend.
The duo hit South Yorkshire to join a brass band, visit a cave in Derbyshire named the Devil’s Arse, eat high-end Yorkshire pudding and busk with local hero John Shuttleworth.
Ralf tries to conquer a childhood food fear at Bury Market on the final leg of the tour and Ricky brings his TV son to some favourite haunts in Liverpool.
