Itinerary

Description

The beautiful north west is the venue for this fascinating break. We are based in one of the UK’s favourite seaside destinations – the vibrant resort of Blackpool. We’ll also journey into yesteryear on the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway, travelling through the gorgeous scenery of the Ribble Valley towards Carlisle and take in the stunning views of the Lake District with its abundance of natural beauty.

Coach Itinerary

The Settle to Carlisle Railway (full day)

Our memorable journey on the world-famous Settle to Carlisle Railway might well be the highlight of our break. Arguably the most scenic line in the country, it took 6,000 men seven years to build. The line cuts a 72-mile swathe across the Yorkshire Dales, over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct, through the long tunnel at Blea Moor and on past the lush pastures of the Eden Valley before arriving in Carlisle, where we enjoy some free time at leisure.

The Lake District (full day)

We head into the Lake District, stopping first at the town of Kendal, the southern gateway to the lakes and home of the famous Kendal mint cake. We then head to Bowness-on-Windermere, a charming enclave on the banks of Lake Windermere. This bustling town offers lovely panoramic views of the lake plus plenty of craft and gift shops, lakeside cafés and tea rooms.

Optional Excursion

Fleetwood Market & Morecambe – £10pp (full day)

Join us for an optional excursion to the Victorian seaside resort of Fleetwood, where we have a chance to explore the bustling traditional market, one of the largest markets in the north west of England. With over 150 indoor and outdoor stalls, the market offers plenty of variety from food, clothing and household goods. We then head to the sea and Morecambe, renowned for its beautiful beach as well as being the hometown of comedy legend Eric Morecambe.
