We travel to nearby Stockport for a
visit to the Air Raid Shelters, a labyrinth of
tunnels which run under part of the town centre
and have been restored to give you the feel of
the Blitz and the struggle that Britain faced.
Opened in 1939, the tunnels were designed to
provide shelter for up to 3850 people, but due
to demand they were later extended to
accommodate up to 6500. From here we head
to Lyme Park for a leisurely afternoon to
explore the historic mansion and its award
winning gardens.


Our day begins with a drive to
the historic city of Chester. The day is free for
you to explore the unique 2 storey ‘Rows’ of
shops or a gentle stroll to the River Dee, visit
the magnificent cathedral or just relax in the
city. Late afternoon we return to the hotel.


We travel to Manchester Airport
and the Runway Visitor Park to board Concorde,
and see the luxurious leather seats and learn
about some of the aircraft’s famous
passengers. You have the opportunity to sit in
the pilot’s seat and discover some of the unique
features that made Concorde so special. Later
we move on to Quarry Bank Mill, one of
Britain’s greatest industrial heritage sites
showcasing how a complete industrial
community lived. The Channel Four TV series
‘The Mill’ was also filmed here.


After breakfast we head for home.
