Chester City Tour

Chester is a former Roman city located just about 30 minutes from Liverpool. It was founded in 79 AD as a Roman fort, and was granted city status in 1541. The city today contains many beautiful examples of black-and-white buildings, and is steeped in medieval history. The city walls of Chester are some of the best-preserved in the country and have Grade I listed status.

Castles of Wales 

Visit the mighty fortress and World Heritage Site of Caernarfon Castle (entrance included) and the stunning setting of Dolbadarn Castle in Wales. Caernarfon Castle was one of Edward I’s most ambitious projects – and one of the most visited attractions in Wales due to its sheer size and impressive architecture. After visiting the castle we will have free time for lunch in Caernarfon town. Next it’s a visit to Llanberis and the scenic Welsh Castle of Dolbadarn – set on Llyn Padarn Lake at the base of the Snowdonia mountain range. A great beauty spot in the UK!

Lake District

The Lake District is the UK’s Largest and most visited National Park. It is the largest area of land to be named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy incredible scenic views of this beautiful landscape on a day trip to one of the prettiest areas in the Lake District – Grasmere and Derwentwater.

York Day Trip & Christmas Markets 

York is one of the UK’s oldest cities, rich with history and culture. It is popular with tourists and residents alike who enjoy exploring its cobbled streets and independent shops. Attractions include The Shambles - a quaint winding street in the historic quarter, and York Minster - one of the most striking cathedrals in the UK. We will also be visiting the York Christmas Markets - one of the most famous Christmas Markets in the UK.
