Super League Weekend Motorhome Tour

Being based in the North West our motorhome depot at Manchester Airport is in the heartland of rugby league.
The weekend of the 7th of February(I know its Thursday but were trying to give you more game time) starts over in the city of Hull on the East Coast. After collecting your motorhome from our Manchester Airport depot at 14:00pm, take the M60 motorway to the M62 then travel for 1-2 hour’s until you arrive at the KCom Stadium home of Hull FC Rugby club since 2002.

Tonight at 19:45 they take on Castleford Tigers who won the league leaders shield in 2017 for the first time in their history crowning an incredible year. They went on to lose in the showpiece grand final at Old Trafford against Leeds Rhinos in front of almost 73,000 spectators. This will be a fierce game as it involves two Yorkshire sides.

After what could be an enthralling battle of guts why not spend a couple of hours wandering around the city of Hull which was named Capital of Culture in 2017. Visit the local Aquarium or take a trip down the docks. Visit https://www.thedeep.co.uk for opening times.

On the Friday evening it’s a battle of the past two winners of the Grand Final over the Pennine’s in the town that is probably just as famous for its Rugby as it is it’s Pie’s. Wigan Warriors take on Leeds Rhinos at the DW Stadium, these two mighty teams take to the field in what will be a vocal and fantastic spectacular in front of a bumper crowd. Make sure to get there early to catch all the pre match entertainment.

Whilst in Wigan why not visit the world famous Wigan Pier or Trencherfield Mill both located on the Leeds-Liverpool canal which brought coal and cotton from Yorkshire to Liverpool to go to the ships for more info follow the link below https://canalrivertrust.org.uk places-to-visit/wigan-pier

After indulging in a pie for your dinner, it’s a short trip down the A49 to Warrington in your motorhome this should take roughly half an hour. The Warrington Wolves have been the nearly men in Super League and in the past 7 seasons they have been involved in four finals and have always come up short. Could this be “Their Year” finally and break the mould. They take on the other team from Hull in the form of Hull KR on Saturday 9th at 15:00pm. Warrington are looking to build on their near misses last year and Hull KR are trying to improve on last years from.

Warrington is based on the River Mersey and was founded by the Romans as a very important crossing place over the River. With great transport links including the main West Coast Main Line railway which runs from Edinburgh to London and is close to the M6,M62 and M56 motorways is perfect for travelling around in a motorhome as you go anywhere in the north west within a short space of time.

Walton hall Gardens is a local park which is located a few miles south of the town and is next to where they hold the famous music festival Creamfields every august. The gardens are home to a children’s zoo, crazy golf and a tea room and a large adventure playground for the kids. Entrance is free but there is a pay and display parking. On warm days it does get very busy so be there early. The zoo is home to many animals including Alpacas and pigs you can even go on an Alpaca walk if booked in advanced.

Your final bit of Action comes at the AJ Bell Stadium home of the Salford Red Devils. On Sunday the 10th February they take on newly promoted London Broncos who beat Toronto Wolfpack in the Million Dollar game last September. The Red devils are going through a difficult time at the minute but they are looking to make steady progress this year, London will be looking to hit the ground running in the first season back in the Super League since 2014.

Salford’s stadium is located at the side of the M60 motorway on the opposite side from the Trafford Centre. Before you watch the teams go at each other take a trip to the Intu Trafford Centre and have a look at the designer shops or have a bit to eat in one of the many restaurants in the food court.
