The first of our Oaklea short breaks day trips for school holidays

“End of the Pier show?” – it’s just begun!

Our programme of Oaklea Targeted Short Breaks day trips for young people departed this half term for the first of 2023! Throughout the school holidays we will as usual have a packed itinerary.




Trains, boats, & big hungry Otters!

This year’s started with a trip to Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway! A morning spent with several tours round the Aquarium -at different speeds and levels of excitement! Plus lots of fun watching the Otters being fed (or was it the other way round – the Otters watching us feed -was a close call?)


“Oaklea Express” -Now departing Platform Lakeside

In the afternoon the adventure continued -this time by heritage rail on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway.

Momentous day in many ways

It was also the end of an era for some of the young people who have attended our trips over the years – this was the final adventure for Madalena & Leo – age is catching up with them! We will miss their presence!


Thanks for joining our journey Madalena

On the bus back an impromptu survey was conducted -and the group gave a resounding 10 out of 10 for such a fab day…..can’t argue with that!

Ahoy there – Want to join us:
