Rail Ale Trail

The East Lancashire Railway has an early Christmas present for you all, so raise a toast to the release of our 2018 Rail Ale Trails!

The popular and professionally led guided tours will see you join a group of like-minded ale lovers on a steam-powered pub crawl around some of the Irwell Valley’s most fascinating locales and best loved bars. Enjoy tales of the region’s past whilst sampling some of the finest brews Lancashire has to offer. There are even specially themed trails for those looking for something truly unique.

Each trail includes an unlimited travel ticket for the East Lancashire Railway, a Blue or Green Badge guided tour lasting approximately 4 – 5 hours, a bottle of ale or beer sampling and lunch. Tours are priced at £39.95 per person.
