    Friday – Salford Quays

    We leave from our local departure points and drive south to Greater Manchester’s unique waterfront location, Salford Quays and our base for three nights; AC Hotel by Marriott Manchester Salford Quays.

    Saturday – Sunday

    Salford Quays, home of Media City UK and the Lowry Arts Centre, is an ideal destination for a short break and we make the most of our holiday by including a canal boat cruise on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, departing from Riley Green Marina. Relax and unwind as we sail through delightful countryside, enjoying panoramic views from the comfort of our specially chartered boat. We enjoy a Lancashire Cream Tea, which will set us up for an afternoon’s shopping at Manchester Christmas Markets. Manchester will be at its sparkly best in the run up to Christmas and we enjoy a spot of retail therapy before returning to our hotel. We visit Chester, boasting the most complete city walls, oldest racecourse and largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain. We soak up the atmosphere of the Chester Christmas Markets, where a magical experience awaits, with approximately seventy traders situated in the Market Square. Why not visit The Rows?; two-tiered framed galleries, which line the main streets of the city and offer quirky, independent shops.
    We visit Dunham Massey, a garden for all seasons and experience the after dark, illuminated Winter Lights Trail, which meanders through the formal gardens and deer park.

    Monday - Scotland

    We return to Scotland after a magical Christmas Market coach holiday.
