US modeler visiting UK

We'll be taking our annual vacation in the UK later this month, and I'd like
to visit a few model train stores if possible. Itinerary will include the
Lake District and northern Wales. Plan to visit the Ry Museum in York and
Ffestiniog.
Thanks for any help. I always like to bring home an operating souvenir of
my travels.
Thanks
Rick

Rick,
Have a look at this model shop whilst you're in York. It's a short walk from the National Railway Museum.

If you get a chance to visit the Worth Valley Railway at Keighley, Pennine Models near Haworth Station has a good selection at very competitve prices. But he doesn't sell Peco 00/H0 track.

Oh ! - that brings back some happy memories - Haworth was one of the places I stayed at when on holiday a couple of years ago. Just a day or two after climbing Pendle Hill - that steep 'high' street was so easy in comparison!
I would love to move there when I retire!
Happy days,
David.

I was in that shop a couple of weeks ago and there was certainly Peco track available. Howarth is definitely worth a visit especially as the female side of the family will be able to visit the Bronte tourist spots leaving you free to soak up the railway atmosphere.

I went on a pub crawl there recently before my nephew's wedding. We started at the top of the main street, at the Old Sun, and proceeded in a downhill direction, ending up at the Royal Oak near the station.

I bet you were glad someone had the good sense to do it that way round.
Unless you lived at the top of the hill, that is!
Cheers!

The groom-to-be (now husband) works part-time at the Royal Oak and lives 50 yards away. Unfortunately we couldn't get a lock-in as some yobs had attracted the attention of the local bobbies in their Battenburg.
