Day 1

Depart from your home and head for Cheshire, you will be served tea and bara brith on arrival.

Day 2

Chester
A drive through the pleasant Cheshire countryside brings us to Chester for the day. The historic city offers lots to see and do. Explore the unique 'Rows' of two-tiered shops and maybe do some early Christmas shopping, take a stroll around the City Walls, meander down to the River Dee and maybe enjoy lunch in a riverside pub, or just relax and watch the world go by.

Day 3

River Mersey Cruise & Port Sunlight Heritage Centre
Leaving after breakfast, we travel around the Wirral coast via Hoylake, with its famous golf courses, and through the tunnel into Liverpool. Here we will take in the sights and enjoy a 50-minute pleasure cruise on the River Mersey to see the city from a different perspective.

We then make our way to the Port Sunlight Heritage Centre. A unique Merseyside village which was built by Lever Brothers (now Unilever) in 1888, to house workers in its soap factory. The village’s name comes from the company’s most popular brand of cleaning agent, Sunlight, and there are 900 Grade II listed buildings here today. Here we meet our step-on guide who will join us for an hour to tell us all about the musuem, as we dive into the history of this fascinating village and get an insight into everyday life in Edwardian Port Sunlight. We then return to our hotel in time for dinner.

Llangollen Cruise & River Severn Cruise
Today's excursion takes us through some lovely Welsh scenery to the Dee Valley, where we enjoy a leisurely horse-drawn boat trip on the canal. Relax to a different pace of life experienced in "the olden days", whilst gazing out at one of the most beautiful canals in Britain; and admire the strength of the magnificent horses as they easily pull our boat through the water.

In the afternoon, we travel to Shrewbury - a town steeped in history. Here we'll discover it's heritage and sights on a 45 minute cruise along the River Severn. Depending on the day, we may spot Welsh Bridge, Shrewsbury Castle, Quantum Leap, Porthill Bridge or the round church of St. Chads. We then wend our way back to our hotel in time for dinner.
