This very special tour includes a return journey over the majestic Settle to Carlisle railway, with great limestone peaks and deep valleys we travel over no fewer than 19 viaducts and through 12 tunnels on this masterpiece of Victorian engineering, including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct to the famous seaside resort of Blackpool for an afternoon break.

Our train heads into the Yorkshire Dales for a spectacular journey over the magnificent high Pennines and the sheer scale of the scenery is apparent as we pass such famous landmarks as Wild Boar Fell and Mallerstang Edge, with stunning views of the three peaks.

One magnificent sight follows another before we gradually descend into the Ribble Valley and past the market town of Clitheroe, then on to the bustling seaside resort of Blackpool for a sightseeing break of around three hours

Blackpool

With an abundance of visitor attractions there is plenty to see and do in this world-famous seaside resort. Perhaps take a vintage tram ride along the 7 miles of seafront, or stroll along the three piers, or take a ride high up Blackpool Tower with stunning views of the Golden Mile. There are also fabulous shops for those requiring some retail therapy.
