Liverpool is a city and metropolitan borough in Merseyside, in North West England, along the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary. Inhabitants of Liverpool are referred to as Liverpudlians and nicknamed "Scousers," in reference to the local meal known as 'scouse', a form of stew. In 2004, Liverpool's waterfront was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site, reflecting the city's importance in the development of the world's trading system and dock technology.

  • Chester and Llangollen

    Cross into the rolling countryside of Wales for a delightful exploration of Llangollen and then return to England for a relaxing afternoon in Chester, which the Romans founded.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a wonderfully picturesque drive through the Merseyside Tunnel and south into Wales. Continuing on, you will pass through historical towns such as Ruthin, cross winding Horseshoe Pass and then enter Llangollen.

    Like many ancient Welsh villages, it is named for a saint, in this case Saint Collen, who founded a church here in the 7th century. The village is well-known for its International Eisteddfod, a festival of folk music, costumes and dance as well as the 14th century stone bridge that spans and has become a symbol of Llangollen. During free time here, you might shop, linger in a traditional pub, or watch horse-drawn boats slip through Llangollen Canal.

    In time, you will return to England, stopping just over the border in Chester. Following lunch at a local hotel, you will have more free time to explore. There are abundant landmarks, none more famous than the red-sandstone defensive walls. Dating to 100 AD, they remain the most complete Roman and medieval wall system in the United Kingdom.

    The Chester Rows is another historical highlight. It’s a series of half-timbered shops above the ones on street level, and the reason they were constructed this way in the 13th century is still a mystery. After reuniting with your guide, you will tour Chester Cathedral, a remarkable building supposedly built over a prehistoric Druid temple, and then return to the pier.

    Please note: This tour is largely panoramic in nature; with walking mostly optional and at the guests’ discretion during free time at the stops. The guided tour of Chester Cathedral is approximately 1-hour. There may be steps, thresholds and cobblestone surfaces to negotiate in Llangollen and Chester. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Warm, layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There are public toilet facilities available that may require local currency.

  • Victorian Port Sunlight & Tea

    Discover the architectural and artistic treasures in Port Sunlight, a beautiful 19th-century village that “Soap King” and philanthropist William Lever built for his factory workers.

    After departing from the pier, you will cross the River Mersey and follow it upstream to Port Sunlight, a village on the Wirral Peninsula purpose-built in the late 1800s for the Lever Brothers soap factory workers. The village is named after Sunlight Soap, the company’s flagship product at the time, and is one of the finest examples of early urban planning.

    As you walk through Port Sunlight, you will notice numerous architectural styles, the result of 30 different architects being employed over the course of 80 years to design the hundreds of buildings. A museum sits in the heart of the village.

    While browsing the exhibits, you will discover Lever’s vision for Port Sunlight and what it was like to live and work here during the Edwardian and Victorian periods. You will find a collection of period furnishings, children’s toys, rare photographs and soap, of course.

    Next, it’s a short walk to the Lady Lever Art Gallery, which houses some of the finest decorative art in the United Kingdom. There are detailed tapestries, Wedgwood Jasperware, Chinese porcelains and priceless paintings from British artists such as Gainsborough and Turner.

    Following your gallery tour, you will have the opportunity to relax in the Leverhulme Hotel over a pot of tea, fresh-baked scones, clotted cream and jam before its time to make your way back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking/standing that includes some thresholds to negotiate. Tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair and are able to make their own way on and off transportation. Guests must be self-sufficient or if assistance is required, they should travel with a companion who can provide this.

  • Liverpool Highlights

    Admire the architectural treasures throughout Liverpool and enjoy a leisurely tour of the magnificent Anglican Cathedral and its original Lady Chapel.

    After departing from the pier, you will soon come upon Pier Head, an area on the River Mersey that was so significant as a trade center in the 18th and 19th centuries that it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among the architectural highlights is the Royal Liver Building, an iconic landmark that was the world’s tallest building when constructed in 1911. Statues of mythical liver birds top the towers, from which the city derived its name.

    Continuing into downtown Liverpool, you will pass the flagship Town Hall, where the Lord Mayor of Liverpool resides, and then enter the popular Cavern Quarter. The Beatles performed in its Cavern Club more than 300 times and musicians still play there nightly.

    More treasures for you to view lie ahead, including the illustrious Walker Art Gallery and the neo-classical St. George’s Hall, a cultural center built in the early 1800s. Still, Liverpool’s famed Anglican Cathedral dominates the landscape, as it is the largest cathedral in the United Kingdom. Touring the interior, you will discover the castle’s storied history, how it survived two World Wars and near-crippling periods of recession. Its nave is particularly stunning.

    While returning to the pier, you will also see the stadium where the Liverpool Football Club plays and historical Albert Dock, which opened in 1846.

    Please note: This tour is primarily panoramic in nature; however it includes approximately1-hour of easy walking/standing at the cathedral. There are a few steps to negotiate. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them.

  • Steam Train, Chirk Castle & Llangollen

    Enjoy a leisurely jaunt into Wales to explore the charming village of Llangollen, ride a vintage steam train and tour a brooding medieval castle.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a wonderfully picturesque drive through the Merseyside Tunnel and south into Wales. Continuing on, you will pass through historical towns such as Ruthin, cross winding Horseshoe Pass and then enter Llangollen.

    Like many ancient Welsh villages, it is named for a saint, in this case Saint Collen, who founded a church here in the 7th century. The village is well-known for its International Eisteddfod, a festival of folk music, costumes and dance as well as the 14th century stone bridge that spans and has become a symbol of Llangollen. During free time here, you might shop, linger in a traditional pub, or watch horse-drawn boats slip through Llangollen Canal.

    In time, you will board a restored passenger train and set off on the only standard-gauge heritage railway in North Wales. As you pass through Dee Valley, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the countryside will be absolutely idyllic. Following a seven-mile route, you may see grazing sheep, hikers along the river and limestone escarpments.

    Arriving in Carrog, you will enjoy a traditional Welsh lunch as a prelude to Chirk Castle. Completed in 1310, the fortress is lavishly decorated with rich tapestries and period furnishings, especially in areas such as the Bow Room, where aristocrats gathered. You will also have the opportunity to stroll through the lovely gardens before re-boarding your coach and returning to the pier.

    Please note: This tour is largely panoramic in nature; with walking mostly optional and at the guests’ discretion during free time at the stops. The guided tour of Chirk Castle is approximately 75-minutes. There will be steep steps to negotiate to board the train and cobblestone surfaces in some areas of Llangollen.

Warm, layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There are public toilet facilities available that may require local currency.

  • North Wales & Conwy Castle

    Spend a delightful day in North Wales and wander through a magnificent medieval castle and two enchanting villages that beckon to be explored.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque drive across the top of North Wales. It is here in this idyllic region that quiet beauty lies within heather-clad hills and hidden river valleys. This is truly an area unspoiled by the ravages of time and abounding with legend and a rich cultural heritage. As you pass through the picture-perfect villages, you will notice that the road signs are written in English and Welsh.

    After approximately ninety minutes, you will arrive at Conwy Castle, one of the finest medieval fortifications in the United Kingdom. Its two fortified gateways and eight stone towers sit on a rocky outcrop, making the castle look almost impenetrable. Although ruined now, remains dramatically striking as it stands by the River overlooking a somewhat peculiarly designed pair of bridges that bring the road and railway into the town. Built by Edward I in the 1280s, the castle is so extraordinary that it has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    From the castle runs the original medieval town wall which is 1400 yards long and has an average height of 30 feet. This was built at the same time as the castle and is the best example in Britain of the defense works introduced by Edward I. Conwy's old wall is virtually intact all around the town, fortified with 21 towers and 3 gateways. As a result, Conwy town center has never been over-run by modern development (all of which has happened outside the walls) and therefore, retains a wonderful ambiance.

    The castle tour makes a fine introduction to your exploration of the village of Conwy. During free time, you may meander through the atmospheric old town, walk the serene waterfront, or visit the red-painted Quay House, the smallest residence in Wales.

    More scenic beauty awaits you on the way to Betws-y-Coed, where you will dine in a local venue before enjoying free time in the village. The main thoroughfare, Holyhead Road, is full of shops and galleries well worth a visit. Although not high above sea level, Betws-y-Coed seems alpine because mountains surround it. After visiting, you will rejoin your coach and travel back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of guided moderate to strenuous walking. There will be steps and ramps to negotiate at Conwy Castle and cobblestone surfaces in the villages. Amount of walking and level of exertion during free time is at guests’ discretion. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with mobility concerns.Weather appropriate clothing that should include a water/wind proof jacket; sun protection and comfortable flat walking shoes are recommended. Public toilet facilities may require local currency.

  • In the Steps of the Beatles

    Take the ultimate Beatles tour to many of the places that helped shape the Fab Four and inspire their music, including their former residences and schools.

    After departing from the pier, you will follow the shores of the famed River Mersey, which inspired the hit song “Ferry Cross the Mersey” by Gerry and the Pacemakers. As popular as that Liverpool-based band was, they paled in comparison to the Beatles, the legendary rock group that also formed in Liverpool and played in its nightclubs in the early 1960s.

    For an in-depth look at the lives and times of the Beatles, you will start by browsing the Beatles Story, an extensive exhibition devoted to the Fab Four. You will learn about their childhoods, how the Beatles met, and how they led the British Invasion that introduced the world to the music of the United Kingdom decades ago. There are also plenty of early photographs of the Beatles that have just recently come to light.

    Continuing on, you will drive along Mathew Street, home to numerous shops with Beatles memorabilia, statues of the Beatles, the Beatles-themed Hard Day’s Night Hotel, and the Cavern Club, where the Fab Four performed more than 300 times in the 1960s.

    Later, you will see where the Beatles worked before becoming famous, drive down famed Penny Lane and pass Strawberry Field, where John Lennon attended garden parties as a child. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of moderate walking/standing that includes steps and stairs to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with walking difficulties. Weather appropriate clothing, adequate sun protection and flat comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

  • Charming Chester

    Explore nearby Chester, marveling at its excavated Roman ruins and medieval city center before enjoying free time to delve even deeper.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive inland to Chester, a delightful city with archaeological treasures dating to its Roman occupation. Chester thrived as a major port until the River Dee silted up in the 17th century and Liverpool captured much of its trade, but the landmarks still stand as a testament to Chester’s grand past.

    Upon arriving, you will begin a walking tour of its most historical areas, during which you will enjoy an up-close view of Chester’s red-sandstone defensive walls. Dating to 100 AD, they remain the most complete Roman and medieval wall system in the United Kingdom. The architectural treasures that the walls enclose are just as impressive.

    Your guided walk will take you past the Norman cathedral (you may choose to go inside at the end of the guided walk if there are no services taking place). Throughout your visit you will constantly encounter living history, from the Roman cobblestones under your feet, to the myriad of genuine old black-and-white Tudor timber buildings on either side of you.

    Later, during free time, you might wish to further explore The Chester Rows, a series of half-timbered shops above the ones on street level. Or perhaps stop in for a quick visit to the Cheshire Military Museum or see the Dewa Roman Experience, which presents a glimpse into early life through a reconstructed Roman street. Of course there are also plenty of interesting shops to browse or places to pick up a bite to eat.

    Following your free time, you’ll rejoin your coach and transfer back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 75-minutes of moderate walking/standing that includes cobblestone surfaces and steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with walking difficulties. Warm, layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There are public toilet facilities in Chester that may require local currency.
