  • DAY 1 Craxton Wood
  • Make your own way to the hotel, which is located just a short distance from the historic city of Chester.  Unwind after your journey with a complimentary cup of tea or coffee and then spend some time settling into your room. Later, we'll get together for a drink in the bar, and dinner with a glass of wine will be served in the hotel's stylish restaurant. 
  • DAY 2 Christmas Eve Chester
  • After a leisurely morning at the hotel, we're going to head to Chester for a sightseeing tour. Founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, the city's history is reflected in its well-preserved walls, its impressive Roman amphitheatre and its striking medieval half-timbered houses. A Local Guide will take us on a walk around the city and we'll visit Chester Cathedral, which stands on the site of a 7th century Saxon church. Back at the hotel, you'll have some time to relax before dinner and an evening of festive entertainment.
  • DAY 3 Christmas Day Craxton Wood
  • Christmas Day is yours to do just as you please. Maybe you'll enjoy a dip in the hotel's swimming pool or pamper yourself with a treatment in the spa. A traditional festive lunch with all the trimmings will be served, and if you're feeling peckish later, you can tuck into a buffet dinner.
  • DAY 4 Boxing Day Liverpool
  • Today we're going to Liverpool, a city with a diverse heritage that's steeped in maritime, cultural, musical and sporting history. We'll explore on foot and a Local Guide will point out many exciting world-class attractions. After the tour you'll have some time at leisure to discover more for yourself – the Albert Dock is a great place to head, where you'll find a selection of restaurants and bars. This evening we'll enjoy dinner and another evening of entertainment at the hotel. 
  • DAY 5 Craxton Wood
  • Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, before checking out of the hotel and making your way back home.
  • 4 nights half board in a 4-star hotel
  • 9 meals: 4 breakfasts, 1 traditional Christmas Day lunch, 4 dinners
