A pleasant drive through the Cheshire countryside takes us to Chester for the day. There is lots to see and do in this historic city. Explore the ‘Rows’ of two-tiered shops and perhaps do some shopping? You could stroll around the city walls or wander down to the river Dee for a relaxing pub lunch.

The Albert Dock complex boasts many attractions including the Beatles’ Story. Liverpool has two cathedrals which dominate the skyline. We include a boat trip on the river Mersey. This afternoon it is off to Port Sunlight. We visit Sunlight Vision and enjoy a guided tour of Port Sunlight which was built by William Hesketh Lever for his factory workers and named after his famous Sunlight soap. Discover how the village was planned with his workers’ welfare uppermost and visit the gift shop.
