Day 3

This morning is in charming Chester, with time at leisure to explore the pretty medieval streets and city walls. This afternoon is admission to and a coach tour of Port Sunlight Village, built at the end of the 19th century and originally designed as a home for workers at the Lever Factory. Over 30 different architects were involved in the building of the village and the result is an intoxicating mix of architectural styles enhanced by the parkland setting.

Day 4

Liverpool is today's destination for a warm welcome from the Coach Host at, and admission to the Anglican Cathedral. This incredible feat of architectural achievement is the largest Cathedral in the UK and it is thought that St Pauls Cathedral could actually fit inside. The remainder of the day is at leisure, but not before the Coach Host provides passengers with a map of the city and the latest information on what to see and do.
