Hoghton Tower & Foulridge Canal Cruise
Tour Hoghton Tower, one of the finest Renaissance buildings in England and the only true baronial residence in Lancashire. You will be stunned by the overwhelming sense of history, a place where time stands still. Explore the staterooms, ballroom and dungeons, and hear all the tales they have to tell. The tour will also include the magnificent Banqueting Hall where in 1617 King James I knighted the famous loin of beef 'Sir Loin'. This afternoon, head to Foulridge Canal Wharf to take a relaxing cruise on a tranquil section of the Leeds Liverpool Canal.
