This new tour offers an opportunity to explore Cheshire and North Wales through beautiful waterways which have long been an integral part of the area’s heritage. We take a cruise on the Manchester Ship Canal, one of England’s most famous waterways, which winds its way through 36 miles of history, industry and countryside. Enjoy a scenic cruise on the River Dee and take a narrowboat ride over the spectacular Pontcysllte Aqueduct, known as the ‘Stream in the Sky.’
The Best Western Forest Hills Hotel at Frodsham is our base for this tour. The hotel has views over the Cheshire Plains and a leisure club with an indoor pool. The bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and a limited number of rooms with a walk in shower are available on request. The hotel does not have a lift, but ground floor rooms are available.
Sunday: We travel to Cheshire with a stop for lunch on the way.
Monday: This morning we head into Chester, where we enjoy a cruise on the River Dee, followed by free time to explore this historic city.

Wednesday: Travel into North Wales and take a canal through the Vale of Llangollen to the amazing Pontcysllte Aqueduct, one of the marvels of the inland waterways. Later we spend time in the pretty town of Llangollen before returning to the hotel.
