Attractions confirmed so far include:


Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways

Ffestiniog RailwaysSet in the heart of Snowdonia, these two narrow gauge steam railways form an important part of the local tourist transport and make a great alternative way to explore the area.
 

The historic Ffestiniog Railway runs between Blaenau Ffestiniog and Porthmadog. Where slate trains once ran from the quarries to the sea, the little locomotives haul carriages full of passengers through the beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog. The newly rebuilt Welsh Highland Line steams from coast to coast between Porthmadog and Caernarfon and the two railways have a joint station at Porthmadog making circular tours and longer trips out available. Sit back and watch the scenery go by with a bottle of locally brewed ale or a cup of coffee served at your seat by a cheerful steward.
 

There are several good campsites adjacent to Welsh Highland Stations so simply leave your unit behind and enjoy your day. To find out more visit www.festrail.co.uk

Don't miss Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways' 108-year steam locomotive 'Hugh Napier' which will be on display!

 

Wedgwood Visitor Centre

Wedgwood Visitor Centre

Set in the heart of the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, on the edge of The Potteries’ city of Stoke-on-Trent, The Wedgwood Factory, Visitor Centre and Museum all combine these days in a way to offer ‘something for everyone’.
 

Visitors are positively encouraged to roll up their shirt-sleeves, get their hands dirty and “have a go” at mastering the skill and craft of ceramic making for themselves!  Skills to try include throwing on the potter's wheel, painting a plate, ornamenting a pot, and creating unique lithographed designs. And children (of all ages!) especially enjoy painting fun animals as well as making and dipping flowers.
 
The award-winning Wedgwood Museum captures and contains more than 250 years of Josiah Wedgwood and the Wedgwood Company’s unique history.  The self-guided, interactive tour takes all visitors on a journey of discovery through the eye-catching artefacts and exhibits that have shaped Wedgwood, and the ceramic industry in Stoke-on-Trent, for centuries. 
 
Open seven days a week with ample free parking, Wedgwood is located just 10 minutes from Junction 15 of the M6.

Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England, known affectionately as La’al Ratty meaning “ little railway “ in olde Cumbrian dialect.

The centre piece in the Eskdale valley, our heritage steam engines journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, along the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops, with a 1:40 gradient at times, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station. The journey itself was one of Wainwright’s favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft) at their peak.
