Althams - Chester & Festive Boat Cruise
Littleborough & Todmorden Express
Following our final pick-up we travel to Chester for some festive shopping at the Chester Christmas Market. Get the festive feeling in this hand-made, historical, magical experience with over 70 traditional wooden chalets surrounding the iconic sparkling tree in the heart of the city centre while the CheSTAR points you in the direction of gold, frankincense and mhyrr (or glühwein, fankfurters & mince pies!). Discover unique, locally made produce and with handmade crafts, jewellery accessories and stocking fillers you’re sure to find the perfect presents in Chester.
We then join the Mark Twain or Lady Diana for a 2-hour cruise that’s a real treat. From the boathouse at The Groves we head southwards out of the city we’ll pass by Heronbridge and Eccleston Ferry, with its Grade II listed ferry house. The river meanders through some spectacular scenery around the Crook of Dee and through the Eaton Estate home to the Duke & Duchess of Westminster. We’ll pass under the ornate Iron Bridge at Aldford before returning to Chester. During our cruise we will enjoy a delicious Festive Buffet with hot Turkey sandwiches, with all the trimmings.
