LANCASHIRE COAST & COUNTRY

Williams Premier Class

Join us to explore the highlights of Lancashire, an attractive county that played a large part in the industrial development of Britain. One of the areas well known sons was the late local character Fred Dibnah and we include a visit to his former home and work place.

The Hallmark Hotel Preston Leyland is a four star hotel. This modern hotel has many unique touches and public areas feature work of local artists. All bedrooms are traditional and well furnished with hairdryer, TV and hot drinks tray. It has an indoor pool but no lift.

Itinerary

Thursday We travel from Cornwall to Leyland and arrive at our lovely hotel to a welcome hot drink before taking time to settle in prior to dinner.

Friday Today we make our way to Lancaster and board a Lune Aquaduct Cruise to cross what is known as one of the “wonders of the waterways”, a true masterpiece of civil engineering. There will be time for lunch in Lancaster before we visit nearby Morecambe and enjoy sweeping views of the famous bay.

Saturday Our day begins in Rawtensall where we step back in time for a nostalgic trip on a steam train along the East Lancashire Railway. We then journey through the beautiful Lancashire countryside to the market town of Bury, home to the world famous Bury Market. Later we visit The Fred Dibnah Heritage Centre. A guided tour tells the story of this well known steeplejack.

Sunday Rufford Old Hall is a fine Tudor house and garden in the care of the National Trust. This morning we learn stories of romance, wealth and discover 500 years of Hesketh family history. There will be time to see the house and hall, an opportunity to enjoy lunch and also explore the garden before we have an afternoon visit to the coastal town of Southport.     

Monday After breakfast we say goodbye to Lancashire and make the journey home.
