Take in the cinema or be a spectator at a football game with rivals Manchester United and Manchester City.
For a taste of the nightlife, hop the train to Newcastle where there are more clubs and late night parties than one could take advantage of. The clubs vary as much as does one's taste in music and atmosphere, so there is a place for everyone to enjoy. There are also many family-friendly attractions such as the Blue Reef Aquarium and the Castle Keep to make even the children happy.
Take a scenic ride from Middlesborough to Whitby and take in the sights of the small villages, cows, sheep, and stone walls. Take a sleeper train from London on a trip to the Scottish Highlands and experience one of the most scenic rides in all of Great Britain.
Ride the trains through Great Britain and see things one cannot see by plane or even by car. Take in the expansive countryside, towering mountains, and cities and towns along the way. Riding the train can be a one-day excursion or a days-long adventure. It is also unbelievably affordable so more of that vacation money can be spent on other things along the way. Travel alone or bring the family along. Wherever there's a train there's a fantastic destination at the end of the line.
