Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your coach pick-up, early this morning, we'll head to the Peak District and enjoy a short stop in Bakewell, home of the famous pudding.

We'll then continue to Liverpool, arriving in the city during the late afternoon. Spend this evening at leisure, either settling in and relaxing at the hotel or perhaps exploring the Cavern Quarter or taking a stroll down to Liverpool Waterfront.

Day Two

After breakfast, we'll head to Liverpool's World Museum for the highlight of our break - the China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition. As well as seeing twelve of the extraordinary Terracotta Warriors - the largest number that has ever left China - you will discover 200 other exhibits, including figures of musicians, acrobats and officials, all of which that have been excavated from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs since their rediscovery in 1974.

This exhibition was organised by National Museums Liverpool, United Kingdom and the Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Relics Bureau and Shaanxi History Museum (Shaanxi Cultural Heritage Promotion Centre), People's Republic of China.

You'll also enjoy a panoramic city tour with a Liverpool Guide and have time to enjoy further explorations of Liverpool. You might even like to enjoy a "Ferry 'cross the Mersey" or visit one of music's legendary music venues, the Cavern Club. There is a good choice of restaurants suiting all tastes and budgets for you to enjoy before returning to your hotel.

Day Three

Leaving our hotel, after breakfast, we'll head home via the historic city of Chester. Spend some time exploring the famous 'Rows' - galleried tiers of shops dating back to medieval times - head to the Cathedral and discover its secrets on an audio tour, walk the city walls or simply sit back and relax in one of the city's cafes and tea rooms.

In the mid afternoon we'll return to the coach and continue our journey home, arriving back at your original pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.
