About the event

Liverpool Explorer and Medieval Chester

Taking in the delights of the North West of England, this fantastic short break is bursting with sightseeing opportunities. From our base in Merseyside, we explore the fascinating cultural city of Liverpool – famous for its musical heritage – before discovering medieval Chester, a city rich in heritage with many historic sights. Enjoy time to browse the stalls of Ormskirk Market, and with a visit to Southport, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Liverpool There is so much to do in Liverpool, from shops and restaurants to museums and galleries. Why not explore the Tate gallery on Albert Dock to see modern art, learn about the city’s past in one of its many free museums, or walk in the footsteps of the Fab Four at the Cavern Club or Beatles Story. Liverpool One, the city's newest shopping outlet, offers designer stores and popular eateries, or perhaps head to one of the two iconic cathedrals which always impress.

Chester Visit medieval Chester, a city rich in heritage with many historic sights, such as the Roman Amphitheatre, walls and cathedral. Each chapter of Chester's fascinating history is etched into the very fabric of the city – you'll be walking where Roman Legionaires marched to war, Viking raiders wreaked havoc and where Norman invaders conquered the Anglo Saxons. With the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse and the largest Roman Amphitheatre, there’s plenty to see and do. Why not explore the famous 700-year-old shopping 'Rows' that boast excellent shops, boutiques and restaurants?

Southport and Ormskirk Market

Today we visit the pretty Lancashire town of Ormskirk. The market here is one of the country’s oldest and most traditional street markets, dating back to 1286 when the monks at nearby Burscough Priory were granted a Royal Charter by Edward I. Today it is still a focal point for the town with around 100 stalls in the pedestrianised town centre, selling wonderful food, clothes, books, gifts and crafts.

Later in the day we continue on to the seaside town of Southport, where there is still an air of Victorian elegance in the galleries along Lord Street – be sure to admire the view from the beautiful pier!

Thank you Mandy. Are you going? Shame there's no other takers at the moment. At the moment I don't know if I'm going to be made redundant at the end of March so will have to hold fire from committing to going just yet x
