Journey on the Llangollen Railway

Admission to the National Brewery Centre

Day 1 Saturday

Early start to be able to get to North Wales for an included journey on the 10 miles of a volunteer-run railway along the Dee Valley. This is the Llangollen Railway, which in its day was a branch from Ruabon to Barmouth taking people to the seaside on holiday and transporting various goods including slate and chemicals. Sample of the sights and sounds of yesteryear before continuing to the overnight hotel near Crewe

D

Day 2 Sunday

Into Burton-on-Trent for the National Brewery Centre Museum. Start with a holographic-style presentation of the history of brewing, then experienced guides take us through each step of the brewing process and explain the roles that the steam engines and vintage vehicles on show played in the development of the industry. The William Worthington microbrewery brings
the tour up to date - with the chance to sample some of the ales. Return home in the afternoon/evening.

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Wales has many Heritage Railways, but only one standard gauge, the Llangollen Railway. Located beside the historic Dee Bridge (built in 1345) in the centre of

Llangollen town, from here the journey is a relaxing 10 miles travelling through the stunning Dee Valley to the lovely town of Corwen, the crossroads of North Wales. After enjoying this experience during the first afternoon, prepare to celebrate the social history of the development of brewing the next day in Burton-on-Trent. The real life experiences of those who helped to build Burton’s reputation are revealed; meet the Shire horses and sample the ales.
