Highlights of the North West
Staying at Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa, Bolton
Monday 26th - Friday 31st August 2019
After boarding the coach this morning, we travel north passing; Birmingham, Stoke on Trent and Manchester to our hotel in Bolton for our Highlights of the North West holiday.
Our first excursion takes us to Oswaldtwistle Mill, the award-winning shopping village. The shopping complex is on the site of a former weaving mill and has over 100 retailers under one roof. We then have a 90-minute tour of the Ribble Valley set in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Forest of Bowland. We can enjoy breath-taking views, charming towns and picturesque villages en-route. Afterwards we have included a traditional lunch at the Olympus Fish & Chip Restaurant and some time to explore Bolton Market.
Today we travel to Bury for some free time in the town to explore the famous market. We then board the East Lancashire Railway for the journey to the delightful village of Rawtenstall in the Rossendale Valley. This afternoon our coach takes us back to Blackburn for a visit to the Chocolate House, well known in the North West for their handmade chocolates and truffles. We have a talk and, of course, a tasting on this visit.
A trip to the seaside today. Our first stop will be Blackpool with time to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the promenade before driving through the Forest of Bowland and the Barton Grange Garden Centre. From here we take a horse drawn barge trip on the Lancashire canal. The 50-minute journey meanders through the Lancashire countryside allowing us to enjoy the peace of a slower pace of life for a short while.
We leave Bolton this morning and make our way towards home with a lunch stop at Webbs of Wychbold en-route. We will arrive home late afternoon.
