We travel to Salford Quays, a hot spot of Manchester and home to the BBC & Granada Studios as well as the Imperial War Museum. It is here we depart on a 60-minute sightseeing river cruise where we also learn about the history of the Manchester Ship Canal (subject to river levels). In the afternoon we make our way to Quarry Bank Mill. Founded in 1783, the mill was built to harness the flow of the mighty river to power the mill, but it became home to a whole industry community and is now one of Britain’s greatest industrial heritage sites.



This morning we have the option of free time at leisure in Chester. In the afternoon we visit Lyme House & Park, the film location for ‘Pemberley’ in the BBC adaption of Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth, which has made it one of the most famous country house images in England. On the edge of the Peak District, nestling within sweeping moorland, Lyme Park is a magnificent estate.
