Stay and Explore
Spend Christmas in one of the UK’s most interesting historic cities, imagining festivities in years gone by. Amble along the medieval black and white ‘rows’, picking up any last-minute gifts, or walk the fantastically preserved Roman city walls, learning of their foundations in AD 70.

Christmas Eve - Chester
Today you’re free to explore the city or to join a guided walking tour organised by our hotel. Perhaps take a stroll into the town to view the magnificent cathedral and browse the shops for last-minute gifts. Or follow the footsteps of Roman soldiers on a patrol of the city walls, the most complete city wall circuit in the country. From these battlements, you can enjoy beautiful views over the city, including the Eastgate clock and the tower where Charles I stood to watch the Battle of Rowton Moor. Later, we head to the Storyhouse Theatre for some classic Christmas fun at the pantomime.
Christmas Day - Chester
This morning there’s time to relax or take a stroll around this magnificent historic city. Christmas lunch is served followed by an afternoon of relaxation.
Boxing Day - Portmeirion
Enjoy an excursion to Portmeirion, a unique village in Wales set on a private peninsula of Snowdonia. Colour, wonderful statues and corbels fill every corner. Much of it was created for the 1960s TV series ‘The Prisoner’, and the cottage where Number Six lived is now a shop dedicated to the show. We’ll take lunch at Portmeirion Hotel before returning to Chester. The rest of the day is free before our hotel’s gala dinner and entertainment.
Day 5 Chester
You’ll be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
