CHESTER & WELSH BORDERS

Chester is an ancient walled city where you can stroll within walls built by Romans. The central location of our hotel provides a delightful base for independent exploration of the attractions within the city walls and on our coach around the beautiful Welsh borders that nestle a delightful range of things to see and do.

The four star Hallmark Hotel, the Queen, is one of the oldest hotels in the UK and sits at the heart of the beautiful city of Chester. Imaginative and elegant interiors provide a fabulous ambience throughout the hotel and there is a lift to all floors.

Itinerary

Sunday We travel from Cornwall to Chester with a lunch break along the way. A welcome glass of Bucks Fizz will be served before dinner.

Monday This morning we have a trip along the coast to Llandudno. Here there will be time to stroll along the sea front or make the picturesque and breath-taking journey on the Great Orme Tramway. In the afternoon we return to Chester for free time.

Tuesday Our day begins with a visit to Shrewsbury, a lovely town sitting in the loop of the River Severn. There will be time for morning coffee before we visit Powis Castle and Gardens. Here the impressive Medieval castle rises dramatically above the celebrated garden whilst the castle houses one of the world’s greatest collections of art and historical items from Europe, India and the Orient.

Wednesday For over one hundred years, visitors have enjoyed trips from Llangollen Wharf and today we take a horse drawn boat trip on the beautiful Llangollen Canal, now part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. During the day we also have time in the town of Llangollen which sits on the River Dee and market day in the historic town of Oswestry.

Thursday Today is free to explore Chester. Founded as a Roman fortress in the 1st century A.D, it’s known for its extensive, well-preserved Roman walls, old city and Tudor-style half-timber buildings. A Roman amphitheatre, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city’s walls.

Friday After breakfast we sadly leave the Queen Hotel to make the return journey to Cornwall.
