White Rose to York with No. 7029 'Clun Castle' - Saturday 7th September
EARLY BIRD FARES AVAILABLE!
Newly restored Tyseley flagship locomotive No. 7029 'Clun Castle' will make it's first visit to York in 30 years. The route will take us from the West Midlands, via Tamworth and Burton-on-Trent, diverting along the Erewash Valley and stopping at newly re-opened Ilkeston station.
The ever-popular city of York has many attractions for the day visitor as well as the Christmas shopper looking for the perfect gift. If shopping isn’t for you, inside York’s three miles of city walls there is evidence of Roman, Viking and Medieval history, mixed with classic architecture from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Why not visit the Gothic splendour of York Minster with its Rose Window, the Castle Museum, the National Railway Museum (free entry) or the Jorvik Viking Experience to name just a few. Alternatively, boat trips are available on the River Ouse, or you can pre-book an open-top bus tour or simply browse around the medieval shopping streets of Stonegate and The Shambles.
Please note: Due to the length of the journey, dining is not available for passengers joining or alighting at Ilkeston.
