Morecambe (full day)
We head to Morecambe, a coastal town renowned for its beautiful beach as well as being the hometown of comedy legend Eric Morecambe. Enjoy the beautiful views across Morecambe Bay, stroll along the promenade or perhaps you’d like to admire the TERN project, a series of award-winning sculptures situated along the seafront which celebrate the diverse range of birds and other wildlife of Morecambe Bay. On this trail you can also see the statue of Eric Morecambe, which was opened by the Queen in 1999.
The Settle to Carlisle Railway (full day)
Today we enjoy a memorable journey on the world-famous Settle to Carlisle Railway. Arguably the most scenic line in the country, it took 6,000 men seven years to build. The line cuts a 72-mile swathe across the Yorkshire Dales, over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct, through the long tunnel at Blea Moor and on past the lush pastures of the Eden Valley before arriving in the historic city of Carlisle, where we enjoy some free time at leisure.
Chequers Plaza Hotel
The Chequers Plaza Hotel is located on Blackpool’s Queen’s Promenade with panoramic views of the Irish Sea. The hotel is set on a tranquil part of the seafront, yet the bustling centre of Blackpool is just a short tram ride away, with the tram stops located opposite the hotel.
