Now of course I could just jump in my car and head across the M62 but where’s the fun in that? So I thought about getting the train, there are two routes I could take one connects into Manchester Victoria – this route goes along a valley bottom through Halifax and Hebden Bridge, it’s a very pretty journey and the station itself is worth a look! The other goes to and from Piccadilly – this is the most speedy journey but is nonetheless scenic – why not get off at Stalybridge and check out their infamous buffet bar? And then there’s the less conventional way of crossing the Pennines… the Trans Pennine Trail, a path which traverses the hills from Southport in the west through Liverpool and Manchester, you can take in Sheffield, Leeds, York and Hull before finishing up on the east coast in Hornsea! Now how you do this is very much up to you… no cars though… it’s two legs, two wheels or four legs to get you along this track!
So I’m away to book a stay in Roomzzz because at the end of the day, however I get across the Pennines I can be sure that my evening will be fabulous!
