This fabulous tour takes us to delightful Cheshire, known for its rural half-timbered villages, local red sandstone buildings and for its Industrial Revolution heritage. Its county seat is Chester, founded as a Roman fort in the first century, home to the Roman walls and cathedral displaying 1,000 years of architectural history. We include a guided tour of the Port Sunlight Museum and Gardens, and of course our visit to Tatton Park.
Situated on the edge of the stylish town of Knutsford, this hotel offers a relaxing county retreat whilst still being close to the city. The hotel has a spa with a swimming pool for guests to use. All of the stylish en-suite bedrooms feature a TV, tea/coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi. The hotel has a lift that serves all floors.

Friday After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to the Port Sunlight Museum and Garden Village. Our visit includes a guided tour by one of the knowledgeable staff who will open up the historical story about life in the village for factory workers and village residents. After time here we continue via the Mersey Tunnel to Liverpool for free time before we return to the hotel in time for dinner.
Saturday After this morning’s breakfast we travel to historic Chester where we have time at leisure. Chester is a classic, contemporary city bursting with must see treasures, 2000 years of history and many great shops. After plenty of time to explore we return to the hotel for dinner.
