East Lancashire 1940's & Liverpool Tall Ships

Marking the ten year anniversary of Liverpool being named the ‘Cultural Capital of Europe’, the Tall Ship Regatta sets sail from the ports of Liverpool before racing on to Dublin and across the Bay of Biscay to Bordeaux. We enjoy the excitement of the starting line, as these magnificent ships prepare to set sail. You can expect to see some of Europe’s finest sailing vessels moored at Liverpool crews from across the world eager to prove themselves at sea in this prestigious event. The following day, we jump back in time to the 1940’s as we travel to the East Lancashire Railway to their spectacular war time era event. So dig out your ration books and dust off those shoes because with plenty of live action re-enactment, exhibitions and entertainment, you’ll feel transported back to wartime Britain.

● Coach travel throughout with reserved seating
● One night dinner, bed and breakfast at our select hotel
● Excursion to Liverpool for The Tall Ships Weekend
● Visit to East Lancashire Railway for the 1940’s event.


A city steeped in history, culture and attractions, Liverpool is one of the most popular city break destinations in the UK and makes a great destination for a coach break.

Liverpool's most famous sons “The Beatles” are celebrated across the city; from the exhibition in the Albert Dock to the famous Cavern Club where the lads once played, you can map out their incredible journey amongst the vibrancy and history that radiates throughout this city.
