THE iconic steam train Flying Scotsman is celebrating its centenary year in 2023 with lots of special activities planned.
And you can travel on board as part of a special rail break from just £149pp.
The 2-day experience is available from Just Go! Holidays, and you can choose from departures on March 12 or 18, 2023.
On day one you’ll get picked up by coach from your local area and dropped off in Bury where you’ll meet the rest of the group boarding the historic steam train.
There, you’ll board the Flying Scotsman for a scenic journey to Rawtenstall on the East Lancashire Railway before returning to Bury.
En route, you can look out onto the beautiful Lancashire countryside, pass over viaducts and through tunnels, with lots of photo opportunities.
Back in Bury, a visit to the Bury Transport Museum is included as well so you can learn more about the area’s industrial heritage.
The overnight stay is in a 3 or 4* hotel, which will be confirmed closer to the time. But dinner and breakfast here are both included.
Day two is all about Liverpool and you’ll get plenty of time to explore the city on your own.
To get you home at the end of the trip, a return coach is booked for the afternoon.
There are pickup and drop off points all over the UK, including Bedford, Derby and St Albans.
You can find more details and book here.
