Cheshire and North Wales are areas bursting with amazing attractions and in this holiday we explore the regions’ waterways, illustrating the important part they have played in our nation’s heritage. Our programme takes us to Northwich for a ride on the magnificent Anderton boat lift. Originally built in 1875, the structure lifts passengers aboard the elegant Edwin Clark boat from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal high above. We travel to Wales for a canal cruise through the beautiful Vale of Llangollen and across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, or ‘Stream in the Sky’, on a brightly coloured narrowboat. After spending time in pretty Llangollen, we travel over the spectacular Horseshoe Pass to the small market town of Ruthin. We enjoy a cruise on the river Dee in Chester and enjoy ample time to explore this charming town with its Roman ruins and spectacular cathedral. We travel north for a guided tour of Ness Botanic Gardens. Founded in 1898 by Arthur Kilpin Bulley, a cotton merchant with a passion for gardens and plant collecting, the award-winning gardens are situated on the Wirral peninsula overlooking the Dee estuary. An interesting tour, offering a different perspective of Cheshire and Wales.
We return to Scotland after an enjoyable coach holiday.
