Overview

With its hidden treasures such as the thirteenth century gallery of two-tiered half-timbered shops known as The Rows, charming Chester never fails to delight. The old City Walls offer a two mile stroll giving a bird’s eye view of the city centre and the River Dee. We include a guided tour of the cathedral, a beautiful building that began life as a Saxon Minster. A special treat is our visit to view the Terracotta Army. These life sized warriors guarded the tomb of China’s First emperor Qin Shi Huang for over two thousand years until a chance discovery in 1974. This unmissable exhibition shows how the Emperor pursued immortality and prepared for the afterlife.

Your Excursions

Guided tour of Chester Cathedral
Originally a Saxon Minster then rebuilt as a Benedictine Abbey, this magnificent building is a national treasure. On this multi award winning tour you’ll climb the spiral staircase used by the monks who once lived there to the top of the central tower where you will be rewarded with spectacular views across one city, two countries and five counties.


Terracotta Warriors at National Museums Liverpool
An unforgettable day as we view a selection of warriors from the Terracotta Army – one of the most significant archaeological excavations of the twentieth century. This landmark exhibition features more than 180 magnificent artefacts from museums across China that have never before been on show in Britain. The warriors are all different and secretly guarded the Emperor’s tomb for over two thousand years until their discovery. Afterwards, enjoy free time in lively Liverpool.
