Now that we’re back on the road and normal life has returned, our appetite for adventure has never been greater. Looking for some inspiration for your next journey? Whether it’s a day at the seaside, discovering hidden history, or taking a leisurely trip to the countryside with good friends, take a look at our top 5 destinations you can reach from Manchester… all aboard! 

Chester and Cheshire Oaks 

Whether you’re wanting to shop till you drop or explore the magnificent history of this ancient city, a trip to Chester and Cheshire Oaks makes a fantastic day out for all the family.  

The ancient city of Chester has the most complete city walls in Britain, plus a 1000-year-old cathedral with examples of medieval carvings – and the one and only 700-year-old Rows galleries where shopping is a delight. 

Cheshire Oaks, a shopaholic’s dream, is home to over 140 shops with premium and designer fashion brands all at your fingertips, offering up to 60% off the RRP. Not only that, once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll have lots of cafés and restaurants to choose from so that you can refuel for an afternoon of even more retail therapy.   

Llandudno  

Llandudno is the largest seaside resort in Wales, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes. The town has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour, so there’s lots to see and do, such as taking a stroll along the pier or soaking up the stunning settings with a trip on The Great Orme Tramway. And when it’s time for some refreshments, you’ll be able to choose from a large selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants with great views over the sea. Fish ‘n’ chips anyone? 

Book your place for next year here!

Skipton Medieval Market  

Skipton Market dates back to medieval times, and one of the major events on its calendar is the famous Yuletide Festival where shopkeepers and stallholders dress in period costume. Looking for a Christmas bargain? Then the Medieval Market is the perfect place to be, running the full length of the high street that is lined with a number of traders all offering an array of goods from handmade blankets to winter hats. 

Join us on the 5th December at Skipton Medieval Market 

Harrogate Flower Show 

Calling all green fingers! If you’re a keen gardener, then you’ll love visiting the Harrogate Flower Shows that take place during Spring and Autumn, which are considered the most prestigious gardening events in the UK. The Spring Flower Show provides the perfect chance to get some tips for how to plan and plant your dream outdoor space in the peak growing season, whilst the Autumn Flower Show hosts a vegetable competition where marrows, cabbages, carrots and potatoes are grown to epic proportions!

Whitby Circular 

With its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy beach, Whitby promises a great destination for a group holiday or short break. Plan out your day of exploration, from a trip to Whitby Abbey, savouring a pint in the sea-shanty inn to wandering through the bustling fish market and searching for a treasure in the many antique shops!
