Itinerary

​- Meet and greet at Liverpool port - Travel to Chester - Enjoy a short panoramic coach tour to see the Roman Walls and Amphitheatre and the medieval Rows - Take a guided walk around the sandstone walls (90 minutes) - Time for lunch and souvenir shopping - Time permitting, you'll be able to visit the city's cultural museum/walk down a virtual Roman street in the Deva Experience Museum/take a relaxing river cruise/visit the cathedral or - Chester Castle - Panoramic coach tour of Liverpool to take in the city's sights including Liverpool's two cathedrals - Return to Liverpool port When does my tour start? - This tour start time will be set as per your ship arrival time. Tour Operates: When Cruise Ship is in Port. (Not suitable for Embarkation/Disembarkation Days)

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence our tour. This is usually a short level guided walk from the Cruise Terminal in front of Liverpool’s principal buildings the “Three Graces” with a photo opportunity at the new Beatles statues where you will board your transport at the Museum of Liverpool.

The journey to the walled City of Chester will take approximately 40 minutes & on route we will pass through the pretty village of Port Sunlight which was built in 1900 for the “Sunlight Soap” workers, now Unilever.

On route we will also enjoy a short panoramic guided coach tour of Chester and see great architectural treasures including the Roman Walls and Amphitheatre and the unique half-timbered medieval Rows.

We will then leave our coach for a guided walk around the sandstone walls, which bear testament to the various invaders, and defenders who have shaped English history up to the modern day.  The basic street plan inside the walls has changed little from Roman times and each of the ancient and medieval towers has its own story to tell.  There are plenty of great photo opportunities.

The guided walk on the walls will take approximately 90 minutes; most of Chester's other famous and interesting landmarks including “Anniversary Clock” and the magnificent Cathedral can be seen from or nearby the walls. There is a short section of the walls which is fully accessible so everyone will be able to enjoy them.

On most days the walking tour finishes with the news being “Decreed” by the Chester Town Crier in their flamboyant robes which is a great photo opportunity.

The City of Chester is renowned for its quirky little independent shops, bars and restaurants alongside the larger High Street Stores and there’ll be opportunity to purchase lunch and souvenirs (not included).  Time permitting, we can visit the Chester cultural museum or walk down a virtual Roman street in the Deva Experience Museum, alternatively take a relaxing river cruise, or visit the Cathedral or Chester Castle.

On the return from Chester we will take a panoramic Beatles themed coach tour of Liverpool capturing some of the best sights this City has to offer.

We will take the new River Mersey Bridge to bring you to south of the city which will enable you to stop for photos outside the childhood home of John Lennon as well as Strawberry Field Gates and Penny Lane with a little Beatles music on the way.

Next, you’ll drive through the World Heritage Site passing the Beatles Schools and colleges and John Lennon’s local the “Philharmonic Dining Rooms” (This was recently featured in the James Corden & Paul McCartney “Carpool Karaoke” where Paul played an impromptu gig.

We’ll see not one but two Cathedrals, one of which is the world’s fifth largest! This fabulous guided tour mixing up the culture and of course the Beatles will show you how the legacy of the Fab4 has helped to shape this thriving city especially after Liverpool hosted European Capital of Culture in 2008.

Towards the end of the day you will enjoy a short guided Magical Musical Walk along Mathew Street and visit the Cavern Club. (Please note that there are around 40 steps underground to access the cavern, although there is a lift which we need to book in advance) – Although on most weekdays the Cavern is free of charge to visit, at weekends and during International Beatles Weeks and other special occasions there is a small entrance charge which you can pay at the door. 

Finally we will enjoy an easy level guided walk with time to buy souvenirs across the “Liverpool One” retail and leisure area and through the Royal Albert Dock back to the Cruise Terminal in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure & at least 45 minutes before “all aboard”.

*** If there is time, we will visit the Double Fantasy Exhibition in the Museum of Liverpool which is next to the Cruise Terminal.
