Manchester, London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Pyongyang ... you'll soon be able to reach them all on a train from Wigan!

The trip will begin right here in Wigan, where travellers will be treated to a pie barm before heading on to spend time in London, Brussels, Berlin, Warsaw, Moscow, Irkutsk, Ulaanbaatar, Beijing.

The trip will finally reach Pyongyang on May 19.
