On a visit to Preston a good place to start your day out after collecting your hire Car from Easirent Car and Van hire is Preston Docks.
There are numerous things to do and see while spending time at the docks, you could watch the latest blockbuster film at the Odeon cinema, stop for a bite to eat or a drink at one of the local pubs or restaurants or take a casual stroll around the docks while watching the boats. There are also shops and a Steam Railway to keep you entertained.
Ribble Steam Railway opened to the public back in September 2005. There has been a railway at Preston Docks since 1850 and the last tar train ran in 1995. These days you can still enjoy the thrill of riding a steam train over the three mile return trip from Strand road to the headquarters on Chain Caul Road and at Christmas you can book a trip with your children where you will get to meet Santa and his elves while the little ones will receive a gift from Santa.
While at the Ribble Steam Railway there is also a Museum and workshop to visit. The Museum building is a great chance to have a fascinating look at the industrial railway history of the North West of England and take some photos of the family in a classic steam train.
