Day 1 - Arrive in Manchester

Your tour starts today when you meet your Tour Manager at the 4-star Park Inn Hotel Manchester, which enjoys a location close to all the historic city's main attractions. After settling in, perhaps take a stroll to the Christmas Markets ahead of dinner this evening. (D)

Day 2 - Discovering Manchester

We begin our stay in Manchester with a guided walking tour of this fascinating city. Our tour introduces sights such as the imposing Cathedral, the magnificent Victorian Town Hall and the grand Royal Exchange - all of which are beautiful listed buildings. Your afternoon is free for you to continue exploring this exciting metropolis at your own pace. Manchester is home to a number of fascinating museums and art galleries, and the Museum of Science & Industry is definitely a highlight. Otherwise, the Imperial War Museum is a popular option, and the Lowry - an impressive art gallery complex - should not be missed. (B,D)

Day 3 - Manchester’s Christmas Markets

Spend a day exploring Manchester's Christmas Markets, which are just a short walk from the hotel. The wooden chalets now spread out across eight of the city centre's squares, and are a delight to explore. Perhaps shop for Christmas gifts such as handmade jewellery, or sample the delicious treats including hog roast, mulled wine and a range of continental beers. (B)

Day 4 - East Lancashire Railway and Tatton Park

Today we take a coach to Bury, to join the East Lancashire Railway for a return steam-hauled journey to Ramsbottom. We enjoy a festive mince pie and glass of sherry as the train makes the climb up the picturesque Irwell Valley.Returning to Bury, we meet our coach and continue to Tatton Park, where we have time to explore this elegant mansion set in a 1,000 acres of stunning grounds. As well as natural open parkland, there are also gardens of Italian and even Japanese design. We enjoy a farewell dinner together in the hotel this evening. (B,D)

Day 5 - Homeward bound

After breakfast the tour concludes, and your Tour Manager bids you farewell and a safe journey home. You are free to depart at your leisure. (B)
