Please Note: The destination of this trip has had to be changed from Whitby due to line restrictions.

Southport to York or Scarborough
Departs – Thursday 05 July 2018

From Southport, Burscough, Parbold, Wigan, Leyland, Blackburn, Hebden Bridge, Brighouse, Wakefield KG and York.

This trip now combines the Railtours trip with the Scarborough Spa Express, and will be steam hauled from York to Scarbough.

A great choice of destinations are offered on our tour to England's largest county giving a great day in fair weather or foul. After enjoying the comfort of our spacious touring coaches on our heritage train and the wonderful views offered as we cross the Pennine chain of mountains, we arrive into York, capital of the Ridings. Leave the train here and choose from a wealth of attractions. Walk the walls, take a trip on the river, explore the historic centre with its Minster and The Shambles, or visit one of the great museums. The Railway Museum is home to the national collection and the Castle Museum with its "Olde Worlde" street, prison and vast collection of memorabilia gives a choice - either of which being almost a day out in itself.

Stay aboard to Scarborough and spend time in one of England's premier resorts. Visit the castle, take a stroll through the seafront gardens to the Spa, ride the cliff railway or just enjoy miles of seafront walks. Whichever your choice, York and Scarborough offer the chance for a great day out by train.

PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.

FIRST CLASS: First Class passengers will be served a selection of Tulip Muffins, freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by cake of the day and freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the return journey.

CHILDREN UNDER 5 can be brought on the train free of charge only if not taking up a seat and sharing seats with accompanying adults.

REFRESHMENTS: A buffet counter service of snacks, hot and cold drinks, and alcoholic beverages is available to all our Standard and First Class passengers throughout the day. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

First Class and Premier Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
