Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your pick-up point, this morning we'll head to Chester. Arriving in the early afternoon, you'll be able to explore the famous Rows - galleried tiers of shops dating back to medieval times - visit the cathedral and walk the city walls before we continue to our overnight hotel.

Day Two

Today's highlight is our visit to Chatsworth. Upon arrival you're free to explore the three gift shops, the stableyard stalls selling mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and mince pies, and the 105-acre garden.

At a prearranged time during your visit, you'll also enjoy a pre-booked, self-guided tour of the house, which is transformed at Christmastime. The rooms are beautifully decorated and lit with candles, and the innumerable treasures - from priceless silver to a 'lace' cravat carved from wood - seem to take on an added gleam. Afterwards, we'll begin our journey home, arriving back at your pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.

Further Information

Changes to the itinerary

In certain circumstances we reserve the right to reverse the itinerary, and visit Chester on Day Two.

Chatsworth conservation schedule

Seven rooms on the ground floor at Chatsworth and six in the North wing are open to the public during the Christmas season. Rooms on the top floor, including the State Rooms, Old Master Drawings Cabinet, Sketch Galleries and Guest Bedrooms, are closed for annual conservation.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

coventry Friends
We really enjoyed this short trip to Chester/Chatsworth. We went as a group of four couples and one couple briefly managed to meet up with their daughter who lives in Chester. The rest of us visited the cathedral which was resplendent with Christmas trees and trimmings. Our hotel was clean and inviting and laid on a very acceptable evening meal. However the highlight of the trip was to Chatsworth.
