This morning we are joined by a guide for a sightseeing tour of the city.  The rest of the day is at leisure to enjoy the myriad of attractions Liverpool has to offer.  The regenerated Albert Dock is located in a spectacular World Heritage waterfront, home to the Merseyside Maritime Museum, the Liverpool Museum and the International Slavery Museum, not to mention the Beatles Story.  The dock is home to the Mersey Ferry and sightseeing tours can be taken from here.  In addition for 2018 the World Museum is hosting the Terracotta Warriors.


Wednesday 1 August

Day at leisure to explore the city. 


Optional 6-hour cruise on the Manchester Ship Canal that’s as awe inspiring as it is relaxing. We travel the 35-miles of the canal, enjoying spectacular scenery and a lively commentary along the way. We hear the story of how this magnificent waterway shaped the city of Manchester and the North West of England; travel through locks and bridges that have remained largely unchanged since their construction over 100 years ago; plus see some of the region’s most stunning architectural and natural sights.  (£42 supplement)


Thursday 2 August

Today we visit the model village of Port Sunlight, created by William Hesketh Lever for his Sunlight soap factory workers in 1888.  Lever employed over 30 architects to create an intoxicating mix of architectural styles enhanced by the parkland setting giving tranquil scenes of great beauty.  We have free time to visit the museum before a guide takes us on a coach tour of the village.  This afternoon we proceed to the historic city of Chester.
