About the tour
From your base in Carlisle, travel on heritage railways, enjoying the rugged countryside in the north of England, including the world-famous Lake District.
Begin your holiday at the Hallmark Hotel in Carlisle, where you meet your Tour Manager. Close to the Scottish border, Carlisle is a city surrounded by beauty. With the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and Hadrian's Wall just a train ride away, this is the perfect place from which to explore.
Carlisle dates back to Roman times and boasts a myriad of ancient buildings and beautiful architecture. Carlisle Castle, a sturdy fort built during the reign of William II, son of William the Conqueror, is well worth a visit. Many of the streets are also infused with more modern history, thanks to Carlisle's place as a centre of textile manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution, when Carlisle also became a hub for the railways. Your hotel is situated just outside the gorgeous Grade II listed station.

Miss Jayne Eastwood
I really enjoyed this holiday. Jacqui, the Tour Manager, was very good, friendly and approachable. She organised everything very well indeed.
Mr Paul Freeman
Well organised and very enjoyable
not 5 because of hotel service and food not tour overall which was excellent as were both tour manager and coach driver
Mrs Charlotte Bulman
Excellent program of trips, allowing for social distancing in these troubled times.
Good party well led by Manager. The Covid restrictions did not help which resulted in very slow breakfast service and difficulty in pre/during dinner drinks as no drinks service to table.
Good Holiday but not outstanding
