The Stratford Flyer

Wednesday 22 April 2020

Carnforth to Stratford

Departing: Carnforth, Lancaster, Preston, Wigan North Western, Warrington Bank Quay
Please Note: This trip is hauled by vintage diesel.


Join us for a nostalgic day out aboard our heritage diesel hauled special direct to Stratford upon Avon which is, of course, famous for its connections with William Shakespeare and rightly so. Being the birthplace of the famous Bard and now the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company makes this town a big draw. You may wish to visit Shakespeare's birthplace with its museum collection or maybe take a tour of Anne Hathaway's cottage with its gardens. All these attractions are on the route of the hop-on hop-off open top bus which operates around the town.

However there is so much more to Stratford than just William Shakespeare. A charming medieval centre with timber framed buildings and lots of independent shops makes for a lovely afternoon visit. Add to this the canal with its boat trips and also the river, which makes its way through the central park, then Stratford has a most attractive centre worthy of a visit in its own right.
