Travel to Preston and the Tickled Trout Hotel for your overnight stay. Comfort stops will be made en-route. Before arriving at the overnight hotel, a stop will be made in the picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, set between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Few towns in Britain can boast 99% independent shops with no empty premises, ensuring visitors top quality retail therapy.
Some free time in Lancaster, known for its well-preserved architecture, including Georgian buildings, and its charming city centre with cobbled streets. Situated on the River Lune, some notable features of the city include Lancaster Castle, which has a history dating back nearly 1000 years and the Ashton Memorial, a striking monument in Williamson Park. Then board the ferry from Heysham to the Isle of Man.
Follow the Isle of Man's famous TT course to the harbour town of Ramsey. Join the Manx Electric Railway to Laxey, then enjoy the spectacular climb to the island's highest point aboard the Snaefell Mountain Railway. Rejoin the coach for a scenic journey along the East Coast to Douglas.
Firstly see the unmissable, spectacular views of Calf Sound, a must photo stop. Journey on for time at leisure in Port Erin, nestling in its scenic bay, before travelling to Peel, said to be the best example of a typical Manx town. Take time to stroll along Peel's beach or relax in one of the cafes before returning to Douglas.
Spend your free day exploring Douglas. Perhaps, visit the award-winning Manx Museum which presents the fascinating 10,000-year-old history and take the iconic horse-drawn tram along the promenade.
After breakfast you depart for the 08:45 sailing back to Heysham (arrive approx. 12:30) and travel home. Comfort stops will be made en-route.
