Day One

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service and join your tour coach and travel to Southport for lunch before continuing to our hotel in Leyland, tea/coffee await you whilst your luggage is taken to your rooms, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

We begin our day with a guided tour of Samlesbury Hall, a fabulous half-timbered black & white medieval house built in 1325 as a family home, before making our way to Riley Green Marina to embark upon a narrow boat cruise along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.  Our 3-hour round cruise passes through delightful countryside including Withnell Fold Nature Reserve, past the old Paper Mill and onto the lovely hamlet of Wheelton and Johnsons Hillock Locks before descending and ascending two locks and returning to Riley Green.  During our cruise we enjoy a two-course lunch on our spacious, accessible boat with each table offering panoramic views of the canal.

 

 

Day Three

Today we travel to Rawtenstall where we step back in time for a nostalgic ride on a steam train along the East Lancashire Railway.  Our journey takes us through the beautiful Lancashire countryside to the market town of Bury where you can browse the world-famous Market before returning to our hotel.

 

Day Four

This morning we enjoy a scenic drive through the picturesque Ribble Valley stopping enroute at Oswaldtwistle Mills shopping village and garden centre.  This award winning former weaving mill has over 100 retailers under one roof, 5 restaurants, ice cream parlour, garden centre, mill grounds, craft and sewing centre, Textile & Heritage Museum and even its own wildfowl reserve.  We enjoy a spot of browsing and lunch before continuing to Gawthorpe Hall, affectionately known as ‘Downton of the North’.
