Situated down on Riversway Docklands is Ribble Steam Railway, just head towards to Preston and follow the signs for the docklands. The railway operates most weekends from March to October but usually has special events planned for Easter and Bank Holiday weekends. There are also opportunities to get hands on with several exhibits in the spacious indoor museum. Once you have explored the delights of the steam railway move round to the dock area itself and enjoy the picturesque scene of all the variety of moored boats. Cross on the swing bridge and if your lucky catch sight of boats setting sail on the tide. Altogether another very pleasant day out.
