2019 will mark 125 years since the Manchester Ship Canal opened, so to celebrate we embark on a cruise of Britain’s grandest canal. A full day cruise taking in the spectacular scenery of how the canal’s construction shaped the city of Manchester. With 2019 also being the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s maiden voyage we travel in the footsteps of the ‘Jet Set’ and head to the Runway Visitor Park where we board Concorde for our Classic Tour.
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.
Please note there is a Single Supplement of £66 per person.
