We depart in the morning to make our way to Wales, with a break in Chester, and arrive during the afternoon to enjoy tea/coffee and Bara Brith, before settling into our rooms.

TUESDAY
We visit Liverpool and have time at leisure to explore the city – With two outstanding cathedrals, the landmark Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head, the Historic Albert Dock, and of course great shopping, you’ll be spoilt for choice. After lunch (at own expense) we enjoy stunning views, fascinating history and unlimited sea air on a circular cruise on the Mersey. Also included is admission to the U-boat Story, where you will discover an amazing view of life on board.
