East Lancashire Railway

East Lancs Railway

Take the trip of a lifetime along this heritage railway, on a journey that spans generations.

With a storied history stretching back to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the East Lancashire Railway is the steam powered heart of the Irwell Valley, pumping goods and people around the region for nearly 200 years.

The line runs for 12 miles through scenic Lancastrian landscapes, from beautiful rural panoramas and postcard pretty villages to bustling Victorian towns and cotton mill dotted horizons.

Local attractions include real ale bars, quaint tea rooms, quirky boutiques, markets, restaurants, cafés and more!

As a Manchester Pass holder, you will be entitled to a ‘Freedom of the Line’ ticket, giving you the freedom to hop off and explore the towns, villages and landscapes you’ll stop at along your journey.

How to get there

Take the Metrolink to Bury. Once you have arrived into Bury, follow the signs to the East Lancashire Railway on a five minute walk from the tram stop.
