Itinerary

Description

Discover the waterways of Cheshire with wonderful scenic cruises, a great way to explore this unspoilt region at a leisurely pace while delving into its rich industrial past. We combine our exploration of the waterways with a visit to the historic city of Chester with its abundance of treasures. 

Coach Itinerary

Lift and River Cruise at the Anderton Boat Lift & Chester (full day)
We travel to the historic Anderton Boat Lift where we take a combined lift and river cruise to see this magnificent Victorian boat lift in action and cruise along the picturesque River Weaver to Northwich and back. Look out for some of the beautiful wildlife while our guide tells the story of the lift, the people who used it and the people who brought it back to life.

Afterwards, we explore the numerous charms of Chester, a city with a fascinating history that spans the centuries, from the remains of its Roman Amphitheatre to the eye-catching Medieval Rows that line its streets. As well as its abundance of historical attractions, Chester also has a thriving shopping centre with a host of cafés, restaurants and pubs plus river cruises and sightseeing tours to tempt you.

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise (full day)
We head to Salford Quays where we embark on a cruise along the historic Manchester Ship Canal. Our boat, which boasts a comfortable saloon, full bar and servery selling snacks and refreshments, takes us on a journey through Manchester’s industrial past with live commentary from a Blue Badge guide.


Optional Excursion
Lytham St Annes & Blackpool - £10pp (full day)
On our optional excursion we head first to the charming seaside resort of Lytham St Annes, nestled on a picturesque stretch of coastline. Take a stroll along the seafront or explore some of the sights such as the Grade II listed windmill and beautifully-restored Victorian pier.

We continue on to Blackpool, one of the UK’s liveliest resorts that has long occupied a place in holidaymakers’ hearts thanks to its year-round buzz, old-fashioned trams, iconic tower and great beaches.
