Spend Easter in style at the four-star Queen Hotel close to the centre of Chester. We have allowed plenty of time to explore this magnificent walled town, and include a trip to Liverpool and to Ness to see the magnolias and rhododendrons in bloom.
Day 1 After collection from your home by taxi, we make our way northwards to our hotel in Chester, with suitable refreshment stops along the way. Enjoy a glass of Bucks Fizz before dinner.
Day 2 Today is a free day to enjoy Chester, where you could explore the almost complete city walls, stroll along the famous ‘Rows’ or visit the Zoo (entrance not included).
Day 3 A day in Liverpool begins with a driven guided tour to give you an insight into the history of this incredible city. We then have free time at Albert Dock close to the Liver Building and on the shores of the Mersey. We complete our Liverpool experience with a journey on the iconic Mersey Ferry, before returning to our hotel.
Day 4 This morning we make our way to Ness Botanic Gardens, which in April has magniﬁcent magnolias and rhododendrons. We return to our hotel for Sunday lunch and the afternoon is at leisure to relax and eat your Easter eggs. There will be a light buﬀet dinner this evening.
Day 5 Departing after breakfast, we travel south with a stop in Stratford-upon-Avon for lunch and sightseeing. We reach the local area early evening.
Originally opened in 1860, our four-star hotel retains its Victorian grandeur while oﬀering all the modern comforts you would expect. Charles Dickens and Lillie Langtree were regular guests and you can imagine them relaxing here when you see the vaulted ceilings, spectacular staircases, and regal public areas of this stately building. Bedrooms have TV, telephone, WiFi, hairdryer and hospitality tray. The hotel has a lift.
