Travel

Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.

Your Hotel: Hallmark Hotel Preston, Leyland

The Hallmark Hotel Preston is unbeatable for location when it comes to exploring the northwest. With rooms all displaying clean contemporary design and richly patterned carpets, bold splashes of colour and mellow lighting. The public areas feature artwork by local artists and there are dining services onsite where the food is fresh and locally sourced.
