Day 3

Leaving after breakfast we travel around the Wirral coast via Hoylake, with its famous golf courses, and through the tunnel into Liverpool. We spend the morning here and you have time to explore this fascinating city. Visit the Albert Dock complex with its many attractions, including the Beatles Story, see the magnificent Cathedrals, or just wander around the city. Whilst here we include a boat trip on the River Mersey. This afternoon we travel through the Mersey Tunnel to Port Sunlight. Here we visit Sunlight Vision and enjoy a guided tour of Port Sunlight Village, built by William Hesketh Lever for his factory workers and named after his famous Sunlight soap.
