Itinerary

Description

Kickstart the countdown to Christmas with a fabulously festive event in the company of the lovely City of Wells steam train, now in the care of the East Lancashire Railway! We enjoy a journey through the picturesque Irwell Valley and start our Christmas celebrations early, with carol singers, mulled wine, mince pies and even a visit from Santa on board! Combined with a visit to Manchester’s magical, award-winning Christmas Markets, this is the perfect way to get in the festive spirit!

Coach Itinerary

Festive Christmas Break with the City of Wells Steam Train

Day 1: From a pickup in your local area, our coach takes us toManchester. Upon arrival in the mid-afternoon, we can soak up the wonderful festive atmosphere and admire the bright Christmas lights at the city’s Christmas Markets. Packed with gifts, clothes, food and drink, jewellery and more, take the chance to start your Christmas shopping or simply enjoy the atmosphere and the variety of offerings. Enjoy a spot of dinner at the markets or one of the city’s many eateries, before we travel by coach to our hotel for check in and our overnight stay.

Day 2: We head to Bury station, where a festive treat awaits us. Here, we’re greeted by carol singers and a brass band who perform a medley of Christmas carol favourites on the platform. Next, we board our train behind the City of Wells locomotive for a picturesque, steam-hauled journey to Rawthenstall and back through the Irwell Valley. During our trip, we enjoy mulled wine and mince pies while being entertained by carol singers as well as a visit from Santa himself, bearing gifts for all!


Afterwards we enjoy time at leisure in Bury, where we can visit the famous Market Hall. This magnificent hall is home to 60 market stalls offering a wide range of products – perfect for shoppers and bargains hunters! Later we re-join the coach for our journey home.
