On the weekend of the 30th-31st July we have a two day tour to Liverpool and Chester and it also includes a stadium tour of Old Trafford, home of Manchester United! £100
Saturday We depart from Parkside Police Station, Cambridge at 07.30 and drive to the ancient Roman city of Chester, with one short breakfast stop en route. Situated on the River Dee and on the England/Wales border, Chester has the largest Roman amphitheatre in the country. You can walk along the Roman/medieval wall that circles the city, visit the medieval cathedral and enjoy the great shopping centre, especially the double galleried streets found in the very heart of the city. At 14.30 we leave Chester and travel to Old Trafford Stadium, home of the most famous football team in the world, Manchester United. Here we take a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the stadium, which includes a visit to the museum and trophy room. There will then be free time to look around the Manchester United Megastore. We then drive to Liverpool, the 2008 European City of Culture and one of the most exciting and lively cities in Britain and check into our accommodation. The evening is then free to enjoy the great nightlife that the city has to offer. This could include a visit to the Cavern nightclub, the underground venue where the Beatles performed at the start of their career in the early 1960’s. Your Travelsights escort will have some good suggestions of what you can do.
Sunday After breakfast, at 09.00, we have a guided ‘Beatles’ city coach tour which tells the story of the four Liverpool boys who grew up to be the most famous group in the world. This is followed by free time to explore the sights of Liverpool. You may wish to visit the Albert Dock where you will find the Beatles Story, the Tate Gallery of Modern Art, shops, restaurants and lots more. Liverpool’s shopping centre is also nearby. We depart Liverpool at 15.30 for our return journey to Cambridge, arriving back at around 20.30.
