From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to our hotel, arriving in time for dinner.
Following breakfast at the hotel, we head to Bury where we board our train behind the magnificent locomotive, the Flying Scotsman, for a picturesque steam-hauled round trip journey on the East Lancashire Railway. With a journey time of approximately 75 minutes, we travel to the charming town of Rawtenstall through beautiful rural panoramas and picture postcard villages, passing over viaducts and through tunnels before arriving back in Bury. We then enjoy free time to explore the town and visit Bury’s award-winning market. Or you may like to browse the independent boutiques, or delve into the industrial heritage of the North West at Bury Transport Museum, home to stunningly restored vehicles and historic artefacts.
Please note: the itinerary order is subject to change.
This morning we check out of our hotel and travel to Liverpool, where we enjoy time at leisure. Once an industrial powerhouse, Liverpool is thriving again today – with a glorious maritime history, rejuvenated dockside and a bustling city centre. There is plenty to see here, from the iconic Liver Building to the locations frequented by the Beatles, such as the Cavern Club. In the early afternoon we continue our journey home.
