Enjoy a fascinating tour to beautiful Lancashire. Your knowledgeable guide will introduce you to the breathtaking scenery and colourful heritage of this area. Start the day at the noble Hoghton Tower, home of the beef Sirloin before enjoying a delicious lunch at a Greatdays favourite.

Hoghton Tower

Set in magnificent grounds, situated 650ft above sea level and approached by a steep, straight 0.75 mile long drive is Hoghton Tower, a 16th century Elizabethan fortified manor-house. The ancestral home of the de Hoghton family, Hoghton Tower has been a part of Lancashire’s landscape since 1565. Join a guided tour of the panelled state rooms to hear about the history of the house, the family and the distinguished guests who have enjoyed the Tower over the centuries.

Lunch at the Calf’s Head

The Calf’s Head Inn is a country restaurant which has a reputation for excellent food and friendly service; a great place for a relaxing lunch. It has a history stretching back 400 years. Most of the current structure was built during Victorian times as the replacement for an ale farmhouse. You are welcome to take a stroll in the garden after lunch. Enjoy the stream running through the garden complete with resident ducks and moorhens. Recommended by every one of our groups for the last eight years.
