Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the morning, we'll head towards Liverpool and our hotel. After check-in you'll have the rest of the evening free to relax and unwind before dinner is served.

Day Two

Today we take a trip into Liverpool and back in time to the rock 'n' roll days of the early 1960s. Our dedicated 'Beatles' guide will bring to life the world of Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane on a themed included coach tour.

See where John and Paul first met, where the quartet grew up, the poignant 'Eleanor Rigby' sculpture and other places connected with four of the 20th Century's most iconic figures, including a visit to the Cavern Club itself - one of Britain's most legendary music venues.

Day Three

After a leisurely breakfast we'll return to Liverpool, and board the "Ferry 'Cross the Mersey" for a whole new perspective on the city. The on-board commentary will bring the city's landmarks to life on this fascinating 50-minute cruise.

Afterwards there'll be the chance to enjoy a three-course lunch at Blake's Restaurant in the Hard Days Night Hotel, and you'll then have some free time to explore before we begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Enjoyed this trip. Would have been improved if the tour manager had done her homework and was informant about Liverpool and the Beatles. She was also not very organised.

DELWYN

Aberteifi Couple
The major drawback of this holiday was the fact that we spent 45 minutes to get to the coach and nearly 11 hours on the coach before arriving at the hotel. Travelling from Cardigan, Newmarket omitted to advise us that the coach was also from Cardigan - one of the Directors actually being our neighbour - we could have saved travelling 30 miles to meet the coach!
Newmarket were quite deficient in their communication in this respect.
We then had pick-ups in Llanelli, Swansea, Bridgend, Cardiff & Bristol, before crawling up the M5 & M6 in a stop-start, bumper-to-bumper fashion because of road works and traffic all the way to the hotel. Had we travelled more direct from our home, we could have reached Scotland!!! The journey home, in the reverse route, was a little better, and we at least kept going.
Otherwise, the holiday was absolutely brilliant and highly recommended!
Will we travel with Newmarket again?
Definitely not up the M5 & M6 and not with so many pick-ups. Travel more direct is the answer.
