Morning collection from your home to join the coach for the journey north to our hotel where tea/coffee and biscuits will be served on arrival.


Day 2

Our first visit today is to the historic market town of Poulton-le-Fylde, a charming place full of cobbled streets, unusual shops and ancient sights. In springtime the church yard becomes a riot of colours thanks to carpets of purple, yellow and white crocuses. We then continue our journey to Lytham St Annes and towards Preston to Samlesbury. Here we enjoy an afternoon visit to Samlesbury Hall, steeped in fascinating history, retaining its original black and white exterior.
