Alvaston Hall became a social hub for the wealthy people of Nantwich when it was built in 1896. More than 100 years later, it still draws a crowd to experience the huge variety of activities and entertainment offered. We visit Chester, Biddulph Grange, Little Moreton Hall, the National Memorial Arboretum and allow time to enjoy the extensive facilities at your Warner hotel.
Day 1 After a taxi pick up from your home, we travel north into Cheshire, making stops along the way and arriving at our hotel late afternoon.
Day 2 A morning visit to Chester. Visit the half-timbered galleried shops in The Rows, walk the red sandstone city walls, visit the cathedral or just relax in one of the many teashops. We return to our hotel early afternoon to take part in the many activities or enjoy the facilities on oﬀer.

Day 4 A day ﬁlled with history and horticulture! We begin at Biddulph Grange to explore the Grade 1 listed garden.

In the afternoon we visit Little Moreton Hall, an iconic Tudor manor house, with moat and manicured knot garden.
Day 5 Leaving our hotel after breakfast, we have a stop at the National Memorial Arboretum before continuing our journey home.
