We travel to Lancashire where we enjoy tea, coffee and a homemade treat on arrival at the hotel.
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.
Guided tour of the Ribble Valley
Starting from Clitheroe, we stop at the village of Downham before heading to Stoneyhurst College, a 1595 building and now a private school, followed by a visit to Jeffrey Hill. We make a lunchtime stop in the village of Chipping, before visiting Dunsop Bridge - the centre of the United Kingdom, Newton and Slaidburn.
Samlesbury Hall & The Chocolate House
Built in 1325, Samlesbury Hall is a stunning stately home retaining its original black and white exterior and steeped in fascinating history and legends. Our visit is enhanced by an out-of-hours tour with an entertaining costumed tour guide. This afternoon visit the Chocolate House, a renowned local producer of hand-made chocolates, fudge and truffles, complete with a chocolate making demonstration and tastings.
After breakfast, begin the homeward journey with suitable stops on the way.
