Itinerary

Description

The traditional Victorian seaside town of Southport is home to twenty miles of unspoilt coastline, the oldest iron pier in the country and the largest undeveloped sand dunes in the UK. It is also known as the floral capital of the north west, thanks to its beautiful parks and gardens. From our base here, we explore some of the highlights of the region, from a traditional market to a nostalgic heritage railway.

Coach Itinerary

Bury Market & East Lancashire Railway (full day)
The town of Bury is rightly renowned for its fantastic 500-year-old market. One of Britain’s finest traditional markets, it boasts over 350 stalls offering a wide range of products – perfect for shoppers and bargains hunters.

After a morning browsing for bargains at the busy market, we board our train on the heritage East Lancashire Railway for a round trip journey through the scenic Irwell Valley with its beautiful rural panoramas and picture postcard villages, passing over viaducts and through tunnels.

Blackpool (half day)
We spend half a day in Blackpool, one of the UK’s liveliest resorts thanks to its year-round buzz, old-fashioned trams, iconic tower and great beaches. Take a stroll along the renovated South Promenade for a breath of fresh air or visit the famous Blackpool Tower which stands at 158 metres tall and gives a wonderful bird’s eye view of the resort.


Optional Excursion
Liverpool with guided city tour - £10pp (full day)
Join our optional excursion to Liverpool, a thriving city with a glorious seafaring history, rejuvenated waterfront and a bustling city centre. We enjoy a guided city tour, learning all there is to know about Liverpool’s history and, of course, its most famous sons. From the Liver Building to the renovated Albert Dock, we’ll discover some of the city’s impressive landmarks as well as some of the locations frequented by the Beatles, such as the Cavern Club. After our tour, we have time at leisure to explore the city at our own pace.
