The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery
Located in the centre of Stoke, we travel back in time and discover the history of The Potteries including the world’s greatest collection
of Staffordshire ceramics, a World War II Spitfire, decorative arts and natural history.
Chester is a historic gem of a city. Be sure to visit the ancient cathedral and the thirteenth century gallery of two-tiered half-timbered shops known as The Rows.
We take a half day excursion to the medieval town of Nantwich, set beside the River Weaver and renowned for its attractive Tudor architecture and winding streets.
We call at the famous Bury Market on our return journey
Tucked away in the Cheshire countryside close to Nantwich, Grade II listed Alvaston Hall is a Victorian mansion with half-timbered framing, an eye-catching clock tower and impish gargoyles above the porch. A rather grand country house, it became the epicentre of Cheshire society towards the end of the nineteenth century. Inside you’ll find a splendid
reception hall with a stained glass window and huge fireplace enhanced by intricate Italian ironwork. Alvaston’s attractively furnished bedrooms are located in a modern annex close to the historic manor. Great activities to keep you on your toes include archery, rifle shooting, table tennis, pilates, zumba and a nine hole golf course.
