English day trips

overcast 20 °C

In amongst tripping off to Norway and Europe we have enjoyed day trips in and around Rochdale. The girls have taken a liking to interactive Museums and the MOSI Museum of science and Industry in Manchester did not disappoint. On arrival the kids got a swipe card and got their photo put up on an interactive board. They used the swipe card to guide them through the museum. Manchester is a city built on Industry and I learnt lots about the textile industry. We watched an awesome 4D movie and had a lovely lunch.

Hebden Bridge

Another day we took the train to Hebden bridge and a look around the shops. The shops are so cute and the streets just gorgeous. On our way home we stopped at the famous Grandma pollards chippy, which is meant to be the best in England. It was pretty good with a mix of homemade pies and fish.

Yesterday we drove to Haworth in the Yorkshire dales, a really scenic drive over the moors to the village of Haworth made famous by being where the Bronte sisters lived. I spent the day singing Wuthering heights to myself. The Village is yet again a lovely shopping street with cute little boutique shops and even a cafe called Wharenui where they sell Kiwi burgers but it was too busy (of course) so we couldn't eat there.
We went through the church where the Bronte sisters are buried and the Parsonage.

In Littlebourgh we found Schofield street, time for a photo op.
