You will be taken through locks and bridges that have remained largely unchanged since their construction 100 years ago, plus you will see some of the region’s most stunning architectural and natural sights. The coach will drop off in Liverpool at the beginning of the journey and collect you in Manchester at the end of the journey and return you to the Macclesfield area. (Inc. cruise)

Haworth 1940’s Weekend

The village of Haworth in the heart of West Yorkshire’s Bronte Country is famous (amongst other things) for hosting a very special 1940s weekend. The event usually involves locals and visitors alike getting togged up in 1940s gear to enjoy a wide range of nostalgic events, which often include a RAF vintage plane flypast, a morale boosting visit from ‘Sir Winston Churchill” as well as spivs peddling their wares. Why not join us on our trip back in time?
