Itinerary

Description

This year, the heritage East Lancashire Railway sees the return of the Flying Scotsman, arguably the most famous steam train in the world. Travel behind this magnificent, 1923-built locomotive as she travels through the magnificent Lancashire scenery, taking us back to the heyday of the golden age of steam. We also visit the thriving city of Liverpool with its glorious seafaring history, rejuvenated waterfront and a bustling city centre.

Coach Itinerary

Journey behind the Flying Scotsman
We head to Bury where we board our train behind the magnificent locomotive Flying Scotsman for a picturesque, steam hauled round trip journey on the heritage East Lancashire Railway to the market town of Rawtenstall and back. With a journey time of approximately 75 minutes, we’ll wind our way through the scenic Irwell Vale past quaint villages and rural vistas of rolling hills dotted with old mills that are evidence of the area’s industrial past.

Liverpool
En-route home the following day we visit Liverpool, where there’s time to explore this vibrant city with its rich industrial heritage, rejuvenated Albert Dock and bustling city centre. It’s also home to world-beating musical heritage and those who fondly remember buying their first Beatles record will love seeing where the Fab Four came from.
