Bypass the Easter holiday traffic and take a green scenic journey along the Buxton, Glossop and Hope Valley lines this Easter. Here are our top 3 ideas for family days out by rail this Easter.
Whaley Bridge to Furness Vale canal walk (approx 2 miles, 3.5 km)
This is a great route for young explorers. From Whaley Bridge station simply cross the A5004 and head north along the Peak Forest Canal towpath for approximately 1 mile (1.6km) to Furness Vale. Take the train back to the start point or pause to enjoy a picnic by the water before retracing your steps. You might spot signs of spring such as ducklings, daffodils and blossom on the trees.
