Enjoy a fantastic and unique three-day break and discover the North West’s awe-inspiring industrial heritage.

Visit the wonderful Anderton Boat Lift, an incredible edifice perched on the banks of the River Weaver. Its purpose was to lift cargo boats to the Trent & Mersey Canal. At 126 feet high, it’s a truly unforgettable experience.

A visit to Chester is also included where we have a guided tour of this fascinating city. Following this, you will have free time to explore this medieval walled city. From the cobbled paths to the cathedral spire, Chester offers buildings of every era, each carefully restored to retain the old world backdrop of the modern day bustle of vibrant city life. Chester is home to the unique 13th Century ‘Rows’, half-timbered galleried shops, the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain and a glorious cathedral.

A taste of Wales today as we cross the border and make our way to Llangollen, famous for its international Eisteddfod, and one of the prettiest towns on the River Dee.
