Your Excursions

Full Day: Today we head for the Manchester Runway Visitor Centre for a guided tour of Concorde. Retired from flight in 2003 our tour gives you the chance to board and offers a fascinating insight into this legend of air travel. Afterwards we include lunch in the restaurant before we make our way to visit the vibrant Salford Quays.

Full Day: This morning you’ll be given a genuine old penny to use on your first ride at the National Tramway Museum. The painstakingly restored tram takes you through a perfectly constructed period street and on to open countryside conjuring up fond memories of the working trams once so familiar in our towns. This afternoon we take a journey on the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway between Wirksworth & Duffield.

Full Day: We head to Llangollen and board our boat for a journey across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct – the highest and longest cast iron aqueduct in the world – simply known as the ‘River in the Sky’.
