If time permits, you simply must take the steam journey along the wild coast of Lancashire, one of the most beautiful in the entire country, rolling past farms and fields, passing trains that have no names, the freight yards full of old black men, and the graveyards of the rusted automobiles. Here, you will also find the river Humber and the fifth-largest suspension bridge in the world. Up past the towering chalk cliffs of Flamborough Head lies the seaside town of Scarborough, so fair. Here, you may partake of the famous Lancashire fish and chips - bar none the finest fish and chips in all the world.
There are scores and scores of beautiful towns in Lancashire, both large and small. Two of my favorites being Giggleswick and Wigglesworth. Recommended lodging for your adventure is the Merrion Hotel in Leeds, Lancashire's largest city. Leeds is also home to the Lancashire A.F.C. football team, Leeds United.
No visit to the jewel of Northwestern England would be complete without touring the beautiful hills and river valleys of Lancashire Dales.
