A super new 5 day break taking in the popular Welsh resort of Llandudno, along with the vibrant and buzzing city of Liverpool and historic Chester, where each chapter of its rich history is etched into the very fabric of the city. Chester has the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse and the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain, plus a 1000 year old Cathedral with Europe's finest example of medieval carvings - and of course the 700 year old ‘Rows’ galleries where shopping is a double delight.
The 4 star BW Queen at Chester is situated just a short distance from the city centre making in an ideal location for our stay. It is a visually impressive, magnificent brick and stucco Italianate building and was said to be the first skyscraper of its time. Each of the ensuite bedrooms is super stylish and equipped with satellite TV, hairdryer and a trouser press. When you're not relaxing in your room, enjoy a drink in one of the exquisite Victorian lounges or take arty photos on our sweeping four-storey staircase. Of course, the hotel is served by a lift.
From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the leisurely journey to our hotel, the BW Premier Collection Queens Hotel arriving with plenty of time to relax before this evening’s dinner.
This morning we travel to the delightful Welsh resort of Llandudno where we enjoy time at leisure. Take a tram ride up to the top of the Great Orme, wander around the lovely shops or saunter along the wide, flat promenade. There is something here for everyone. Later we travel back to our hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Today is spent in our resort of Chester. Chester is encircled by a 2-mile ring of Roman and medieval walls, has the oldest racecourse in the country dating back to 1539 and half-timbered buildings where you can visit the 700 year old ‘Chester Rows‘ - the 2-tiered galleries of shops in the Rows are packed with shops, cafes and restaurants.

It was originally opened in 1846 as a dockside warehouse complex, but today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also has the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK. Walk around its colonnades, under its stone arches and along the water’s edge for a little retail therapy or stop for a drink at one of its cafes, restaurants or bars.
