Manchester City By Canal, Peak District & Roman Chester
5 Day Coach Holiday
A special treat is in store on this holiday when we experience the historic City of Manchester from the comfort of our deluxe canal boat while being served a delicious lunch. This scenic and entertaining cruise begins in Castlefield in the heart of Roman Manchester from where we sail along the Bridgewater Canal to Pomona Lock. Here our boat is lowered on to the Manchester Ship Canal and we cruise on to Salford Quays, passing sights such as The Lowry, Media City UK and the Imperial War Museum North. We also spend a day in Chester and discover the Peak District gems of Buxton and Bakewell.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Manchester City by Canal & Lunch
We board our boat late morning at Castlefield then set sail, taking in the scenery and listening to interesting commentary as our freshly prepared meal is served. Drinks may be purchased from the licensed bar. Arriving at Pomona Lock, our boat is lowered on to the Manchester Ship Canal then we cruise on to Salford Quays where we disembark for free time to explore the attractions. We re-join our boat mid-afternoon for coffee and cake as we sail back to Castlefield.
Buxton & Bakewell
First up is beautiful Buxton, a spa town with landmarks such as Solomon’s Temple, the Grade I listed Crescent, the Devonshire Dome and Poole’s Cavern – a two-million-yearold limestone cave. We continue to the market town of Bakewell, home to grand period houses and the eponymous tart.
Discover the endless charms of Chester. Perhaps walk the old City Walls to get a bird’s eye view of the city centre and the River Dee. Visit the cathedral, a beautiful building that began life as a Saxon Minster, or discover the Roman amphitheatre, the castle and The Rows.
