Coach Trip to Bury & East Lancashire Railway (Heritage)

Bury in Greater Manchester is our destination this year. Primarily to visit East Lancashire Railway and sample its 'Rail Ale Trail'###, but Bury itself has plenty to offer as well, with museums, shops, culture, the Transport Museum, the famous Bury Markets (get your black pudding!) plus 3 GBG pubs. You could even get the tram to central Manchester you're free to do what you want once there.

The ELR is a preserved line that operates Steam and Diesel trains and runs for 12 miles through the scenic Lancashire countryside, with six station stops it gives plenty of opportunities for the imbiber along the way. Of note:
Bury: 3 GBG pubs + many more station buffet
Ramsbottom: 3 GBG pubs + many more
Rawtenstall: 1 GBG pubs + many more station buffet
