Day 2

Take a tour of Hoghton Tower, one of the finest Renaissance buildings in England. From the moment your coach arrives at the only true baronial residence in Lancashire, you will be stunned by the overwhelming sense of history, a place where time stands still. Enjoy a fascinating 90-minute guided tour of the staterooms, ballroom and dungeons and all the tales they have to tell.� Hear from one of the expert guides about the history of the house, the family and the many guests who have walked through these same rooms. The tour will also include the magnificent Banqueting Hall where in 1617 King James I knighted the famous loin of beef ‘Sir Loin’. Venture along underground passages and peer into the dungeons and Tudor Well House of the reputedly third most haunted house in Britain. You can also visit the permanent Dolls’ House Collection and stroll around the walled gardens, courtyards and along the ramparts. In the afternoon, rejoin your coach and head to Foulridge Canal Wharf to take a relaxing canal cruise on a tranquil section of the Leeds Liverpool Canal. The cruise passes through delightful countryside and during the journey enjoy tea or coffee and a warm scone with jam, butter and cream served on board.

Day 4

We visit Samlesbury Hall, a stunning stately home, built in 1325 retaining its original typical black and white exterior and steeped in fascinating history and legends. Our visit is enhanced by an out-of-hours guided tour with an entertaining specialist costumed tour guide. In the afternoon, head to The Chocolate House in Blackburn, a well-established renowned local producer of hand made chocolates, fudge and truffles. We enjoy a demonstration of the art of chocolate making, along with a cup of tea or coffee and some samples of chocolate to tantalise our taste buds. If time allows, on the way back to the hotel perhaps include a visit to popular Oswaldtwistle Mills with a wide range of shops and cafes set within what was once one of Lancashire’s leading cotton mills.
