Take a Canal Trip Through History
Combine a fabulous Canal Trip aboard Romance along the Leeds Liverpool Canal with a guided tour of the stunning ancestral home of the de Hoghton Family, Hoghton Tower
From the moment your coach arrives at Hoghton Tower, the only true baronial residence in Lancashire, you stunned by the overwhelming sense of history, a place where time stands still. Your party will then be taken on a one and a half hour fascinating guided tour of the staterooms, ballroom and dungeons and 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’
Two Hour or Three Hour Canal Trip
Following the tour you will rejoin your coach for a two or three hour Canal Cruise on the Leeds Liverpool Canal from the Riley Green Marina. Transfer time 5 minutes from Hoghton Tower. The three hour Canal Cruise passes through delightful countryside including Withnell Fold Nature Reserve, past the old Paper Mill and on to the lovely hamlet of Wheelton and Johns Hillock Locks before descending and ascending two locks. Then your return Canal Cruise back to Riley Green Marina. During your Canal Cruise aboard Romance you can relax and unwind with a drink and a taste of ‘Lancashire Fare’ from cream teas and buffets to home-made pies and Lancashire hot-pot.
Our Canal Trips aboard Romance are light, airy, and spacious and each table has a panoramic view of the canal and has disabled access.
