Its a 45 minute journey to our first destination of Chester
Medieval City of Chester

Passing the Town Hall and the black and white timber clad buildings you will fall in love with the unique charm of Chester.
After the walking tour you will have free time to buy lunch & to visit the Cathedral.
Port Sunlight was built by William Hesketh Lever as an idyllic model village for his “Sunlight Soap” workers. At a time when the majority of workers had been living in terrible conditions without running water, heating or even a bathroom to move to such a village was the envy of many a family lucky enough to work at the soap factory. Lever used around 27 different architects to design clusters of houses using different European styles to reflect the countries he was trading with.
Your Tour Guide will show you open spaces, theatres, bowling greens, shops and there is even the church where Lord Lever and his wife are interred in a splendid crypt. This is a real hidden gem and you will love it.
Your guide will help you to explore the village and visit the Lady Lever Art Gallery which contains a collection of Wedgewood as well as important works pre-Raphaelite art and other artifacts from roman excavations. There is also a fascinating collection of traditional English Furniture crafted by Thomas Chippendale and other famous designers.
There is a restaurant in the Lady Lever Art Gallery and there are other quaint tea shops as well as the café in the museum itself where you can buy refreshments.
