Pennine Explorer – Rail & Sail

Discover a great coach holiday in England.
The adventure packed itinerary on this popular holiday offers two very different journeys through hills and moors. Sit back, relax and watch the dramatic landscape unfold from the comfort of a steam train and canal barge. We include a ride on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, as featured in the famous film, The Railway Children, through the very heart of Bronte Country and a Pennine boat cruise aboard an authentic canal narrow boat. Coupled with visits and excursions in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland, this is a holiday not to be missed.

      YOUR ITINERARY

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


Grassington, Skipton & Pennine Boat Cruise:
After a leisurely breakfast we journey to the Yorkshire Dales and its most popular main village, Grassington with its cobbled Market Square home to several inns, shops and to the Upper Wharfdale Museum (entrance not included). Late morning we travel to Skipton, dubbed “The gateway to the Dales”. This wonderful historic market town is situated in the heart of the beautiful Pennines with its superbly preserved 900 year old medieval Castle. From here we join our Pennine boat cruise travelling on board a beautiful, traditional, canal narrow boat. During the hour long trip the skipper unravels the captivating tale of the canal while passing through the varied scenery, mill buildings and the many bridges.

Haworth, Keighley & Worth Valley Railway:

PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE A REPLACEMENT RAIL JOURNEY ON THE FOLLOWING DEPARTURES - SEPT 30 & OCTOBER 14. THIS IS DUE TO THE HAWORTH KEIGHLEY RAILWAY NOT RUNNING AT THIS TIME. THIS WILL BE REPLACED WITH A TRIP ON THE EMBSAY TO BOLTON ABBEY STEAM RAILWAY.

This morning we visit Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where you will have free time for shopping and sightseeing. This afternoon we journey on the Embsay to Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. We travel between Embsay station, built in 1888, and the new award-winning station at Bolton Abbey. Your journey takes you through picturesque Yorkshire Dales scenery. Refreshments are available in the tearooms at Bolton Abbey and Embsay stations. Both feature gift shops, including the famous bookshop at Embsay station.


Pendle Hill, Forest of Bowland & Oswaldtwistle Mills:
We travel over the dramatic scenery on the Lancashire side of the Pennines to Pendle Hill and the Forest of Bowland where you will have time for sightseeing. This afternoon we continue to Oswaldtwistle Mills for a final shopping opportunity.

LAST DAY: After breakfast, we return homewards, arriving back at your local joining points early to mid evening.
