Settle Carlisle Railway 2 Days 25 – 26 May 2019

HISTORIC GRETNA
THE SPECTACULAR SETTLE CARLISLE RAILWAY
BEAUTIFUL LAKE DISTRICT
SKIPTON MARKET – ‘GATEWAY TO THE DALES’

The Settle-Carlisle railway line is one of the most famous in England. Half a million passengers ride on it every year, the majority of them for the sheer pleasure of journeying through some of the North’s most magnificent scenery from the comfort of the train. We also take in Skipton and more beautiful scenery through the Lake District.

YOUR HOTEL Nestling in ten acres of landscaped grounds and situated midway between the Borders Region and Scotland’s southwest, the 3* Gretna Hall Hotel is located in the centre of Gretna Green. All bedrooms are en suite and have TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.

SATURDAY We travel to Yorkshire and the market town of Skipton, often called the gateway to the Dales with its many shops, cobbled streets and alleyways, plus one of the most complete and well preserved medieval castles in England. We then join our diesel train for our breath-taking journey on England’s most scenic railway line – the Settle to Carlisle, one of the last great railways to be built in the country and completed in 1876. We travel through stunning countryside to Carlisle and to Gretna for dinner and overnight stay.

SUNDAY Our return journey home this morning gets under way with more beautiful scenery as we travel to the wonderful Lake District. Travelling via Keswick and Grasmere to Bowness on Lake Windermere, where we have time to have lunch, perhaps take a boat trip or just enjoy your surroundings before continuing our journey home, arriving in the early evening.
