Led by a qualified local guide, the tour will bring to life more than 2,000 years of history, dating back to the Romans, and includes many of the must-see historic secrets. In the afternoon we take a memorable cruise on the River Dee, taking us beneath the city’s suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park, the Earl’s Eye and out into the ‘meadows’.

We take a boat trip on the elegant Edwin Clark and cruise through this unique structure which highlights the ingenuity of the great Victorian engineers. In the afternoon we head to Tatton Park, on the outskirts of Knutsford. A splendid Georgian mansion overlooks an extensive landscaped park, where you can find an orangery, a Japanese garden with a Shinto temple, and an Italian garden.
