We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 National Waterways Museum & Chester
We begin our day with a visit to the National Waterways Museum in its delightful waterside setting at Ellesmere Port, surrounded by flotillas of historic boats and fascinating displays in its fine Victorian buildings. On arrival, tea, coffee and biscuits are served before we climb aboard a narrowboat for a 30 minute guided tour of the Shropshire Union Canal, after which we enjoy a 45 minute guided tour of the museum. We have the afternoon to explore the historic city of Chester at leisure, perhaps taking a relaxing 30 minute cruise on the River Dee.

Day 3 Liverpool
We spend today in Liverpool, beginning with a 50 minute cruise of the River Mersey. We have the rest of the day at leisure to discover Albert Dock and Liverpool’s famous world-class attractions, including The World Museum, the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour, the Cavern Club and the Museum of Liverpool to name but a few.

Day 4 Arley Hall & Anderton Boat Lift
We spend this morning at beautiful Arley Hall, where we have time at leisure exploring this historic family home and gardens, amongst the finest in the UK. After lunch, we visit the historic Anderton Boat Lift, a masterpiece of Victorian Engineering. We enjoy a 30 minute voyage in a glass covered boat to experience exactly how the lift works - by raising us 50ft into the air! Afterwards we enjoy a 45 minute cruise along the river.
