North West

Whether you’re planning a day trip or an extended stay, you’ll be spoilt for choice in England’s North West.

Looking for an adrenaline-fuelled day? Catch the train straight to the heart of the action at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Britain's most ride intensive amusement park.

Slow the pace with a walk along the beaches of the Lancashire Coast and visit quaint seaside towns such as St-Annes-on-the-Sea and Morecambe. Interested in heritage? Make sure you have a visit to historic Chester planned.

If you're feeling adventurous, get your hiking boots on and explore the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park.

Just want to sit back and let the train take the strain? Pack a picnic and set off on the impressive Cumbrian Coast Line. Picture-perfect coastal views, epic mountainous landscapes and lush Cumbrian countryside means you won't be able to keep your camera in your bag for long!
