Day 1

Your holiday starts with a pick-up from home by one of the vehicles in our Door-to-Door service and this will bring you through to our coach. Once everyone is on board, we'll make our way to North Wales with suitable comfort breaks during the journey. We'll aim to arrive late afternoon to give you time to unpack and freshen up before dinner.

Day 2

Begin the day in charming Chester with a tranquil, 30-minute cruise on the River Dee including commentary. The remainder of the morning is at leisure to explore the pretty medieval streets and city walls. After lunch, travel north to the Wirral Peninsula for a guided tour of the award-winning Ness Botanic Gardens. Founded in 1898 by Arthur Kilpin Bulley, a cotton merchant with a passion for gardens and plant collecting, the site covers some 64 acres and houses a large collection of plants originating from as far away as China, the Himalayas and Tibet.

Day 3

Venture south this morning for a canal cruise through the beautiful Vale of Llangollen and across the Pontcysllte Aqueduct, or 'Stream in the Sky', on a brightly coloured narrowboat. An interesting commentary gives visitors an insight into the history of the area and other canals in the UK. Spend time in Llangollen itself, before travelling over the spectacular Horseshoe Pass to the small market town of Ruthin, before returning to the hotel.

Day 4

Travel to Northwich for a ride on the magnificent Anderton Boat Lift. Originally built in 1875, the structure lifts passengers aboard the elegant Edwin Clark boat from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal high above. A comprehensive visitor centre houses an exhibition focusing on the lift's history together with its control centre, so visitors can get close the action. On then to the pleasant market town of Nantwich, before returning to the hotel via the lovely lakes at Ellesmere
