Make the most of your Bank Holiday

published: Tuesday, May 21 2019

It's the May bank holiday on Monday 27 May, and we've got some champion ideas for things to see and do over the weekend. 

Shop until you drop

We're lucky to have some of the best shopping destinations in the country right on our doorstep. The Mall shopping experience is right next door to the bus station in Blackburn - so you can shop until you drop, and let us take you home afterwards. And don't forget, we have the world-famous Bury Market on our doorstep, so make sure you get your fill of black puddings!

Have a beer or two

The fantastic Beer Festival is taking place at Blackburn Rugby Club over the Bank Holiday weekend - catch Valleyline from Blackburn, and we'll drop you off right outside.

Champion fares to get you there

Not only is the bus the easiest way to travel, it's the cheapest, too. 

Two can travel together into Manchester on the Witchway from Rawtenstall just £16 return, and Red Express from Ramsbottom for just £4.60 for a day ticket. What's more, you'll find buses all the way until 3am on Saturday nights on the Witchway, so you can really make the most of your weekend. 

Don't forget, all of our buses on bank holiday Monday will be running to Sunday times. 

We'd love to know what you're up to this weekend. Follow and tweet us @rossobus
