Lancashire: By Canal, By Rail

Lancashire: By Canal, By Rail

Relaxation; it’s everywhere. Is it steam that helps you unwind? Meandering down a canal maybe? Or relaxing in a spa? Lancashire has it all, oh and did we forget to mention its plentiful history and culture waiting to be discovered?

Nothing quite soothes the soul like great history and major achievements.


We’ll travel to Lancashire where we’ll find our hotel and with great facilities it really boasts a gentle atmosphere. 


Arrival marks the start of you making great discoveries as we head to Samlesbury Hall, a stately home decorated from top to bottom in crosses.


Indulge in a two course meal whilst meandering down a canal on an alluring narrow boat cruise.


Enjoy a ride on the East Lancashire Steam Railway observing every little beauty this steam train boasts whilst watching the landscape fly by outside your window.



Head to Bury and unwind at this homely market town, unearthing lots of little treasures, from timeless antiques to organic produce.
