Description

Day 1 

We will make our way to Chester where we will join the Chester Ship Cruise.  From our boat house at The Groves, in Chester, we head southwards, out of the city. We’ll pass by Heronbridge and Eccleston Ferry, with its Grade II listed ferry house. The river meanders through some spectacular scenery around the Crook of Dee and through the Eaton Estate, home to the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. We’ll pass under the ornate Iron Bridge at Aldford, before returning to Chester.

This is a very tranquil stretch of the Dee with opportunities to spot wildlife, including swans, herons, cormorants, moorhens and – if your eyes are sharp – a kingfisher or two, so keep your camera ready!  An informative sightseeing commentary will keep you informed about the river and its surroundings.  Whilst on board the cruise you will be served mouthwatering fish and Chips.

After the cruise, we will make our way to the hotel where you can relax and enjoy your night.

Day 2 

After your breakfast, we will make our way to Lancaster to board the Kingfisher Canal Boat.

Voted Lancaster’s top tourist attraction and one of the waterways seven wonders, the lune aqueduct cruise is more popular than ever. Join the cruise at the mooring at Aldcliffe Road  a short distance from the centre of the city. On departing we cruise past the refurbished mills once the home of the local company of Storey Brothers famous for its plastics and wallpapers. A great view of the magnificent spire of the cathedral is captured as the boat passes underneath. Once through the city centre the boat cruises through the suburban outskirts and into the North Lancashire countryside before arriving at the the 100 foot structure that is the Lune Aqueduct. Subject to weather conditions passengers may alight and take in the views from the top of the Aqueduct. These views include the city scape, the river Lune itself and on a clear day as far as North Yorkshire and the flat topped hill of Ingleborough.  Whilst on board the boat you will enjoy the delicious afternoon tea.
