After a day of travelling on Monday, you will have chance to recuperate before exploration of Liverpool on Tuesday. The famously musical city has lots to offer, be it the vast array of museums and galleries near the renovated Albert Dock, or the city’s modern shopping centre – you will not be lost for things to do. A half-day of leisure in Southport awaits us on Wednesday. Explore this classical seaside resort, renowned for its miles of golden sands, flat terrain, and legendary Lord Street, before we head off to one of the finest Tudor buildings in the area, Rufford Hall. On Thursday, we have a guided tour around the unique village of Port Sunlight. In the afternoon, we absorb the stunning views across the beautiful Dee Estuary as we visit Ness Botanic Gardens, where you will be able to enjoy a treat in the Garden Kitchen Café.
