Skipton & Lancaster Mini Break (D)
Samlesbury Hotel, Preston

From a charming Market town to an historic city - with plenty to do in between.

A fleeting but full and fascinating short break...



Day 1: Meet our coach this morning on a leisurely drive to North Yorkshire.  After a comfort stop along the way, we’ll arrive at Skipton.

All being well, there should be some time to explore Skipton and perhaps get a bite to eat, it’s then on to experience the beautiful scenery and tranquility of a cruise along the Leeds-Liverpool canalDeparting at around 2.10pm from Skipton Wharf, the 60 minute return cruise meanders its way through the stunning countryside while a lively commentary is provided on the local area and history of Skipton and the canal – tea and biscuits are included.  After the cruise, your coach will be waiting to take you onto our hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

We stay at the Samlesbury Hotel Preston. A 4 Star hotel just outside Preston.  Recently refurbished with bar/restaurant, fitness suite and a lift to all floors. All rooms en suite, with tea/coffee, TV, toiletries and free Wi-Fi.

Day 2: After breakfast we board the coach and drive to Leighton Hall near Carnforth in Lancashire.

It’s the historic home of the world-renowned Gillow furniture making family. Leighton Hall, with its romantic Gothic towers and acres of beautiful gardens, is in a stunning location.

You’ll love the fascinating, private guided tour of the house and you’ll hear lots of fascinating and amusing tales! 

Now we go to Lancaster city and enjoy Lunch at the ‘Borough’

For centuries travelers approaching Lancaster have been greeted with the magnificent sight of the Medieval Castle, which presides over the city's compact, historic heart

We have lunch at ‘The Borough’ – a lovely Georgian building with oak paneling and beautiful stained glass windows situated right in the centre of Lancaster.

You might well feel the need to walk off that lunch! So now you have a few hours free to explore this Historic city.

We meet back at the coach late afternoon before heading for home
