CRUISE LIVERPOOL: Chester Experience

Departs From:    Liverpool Cruise Terminal
Departs at:          Synchronised to ship
Returns at:          5.1/2 Hours Later
Adults:                £35 

The Chester Experience fully-escorted tour is a 5.1/2-hour cruise excursion from your ship at Liverpool Cruise Terminal. It provides the best of both Worlds as you will still have a chance to see the vibrant, cosmopolitan “Beatle” City of Liverpool (under your own steam) as well as hopping aboard our executive coach and being whisked off to the amazing City Of Chester just 40-minutes away.

As with all BusyBus shore excursions we keep our prices simple and to an absolute minimum. There is no catch! We really will delight you with your driver & tour escort keeping you fully informed and advised as to points of interest and general knowledge throughout the tour.

We do not force on you (on a pre-pay basis) lunch or unwanted attraction tickets because, quite simply, there is so much choice to see and do that we’ll leave those choices  up to you on a pick & mix, go-as-you-please basis. What we will do is make sure you’re fully informed as to what’s on offer, the bargains to be had and assist in creating the best possible day out for you.

We’ll travel in an executive coach during the short, fully-narrated transfers with your comfort in mind, never stuffing vehicles like “cattle-carriers” to capacity and always ensuring everyone has plenty of seat space and a full window view.  Your BusyBus team will become buddies rather than “working” staff and we only conduct shore excursions the way shore excursions were intended – as fun!

Your day commences directly from your ship on the spectacular Liverpool quayside (synchronised with the ships timetable. We won’t go without you or get you back late!). Liverpool has a direct berthing dock eliminating tendering and/or poor-weather cancellations.

Your tour has been carefully routed and planned with your guide tailoring the day to suit the weather, atmosphere, whats-on and ambiance of the general group on board. This makes every tour unique, special and memorable and allows you to partake in as much (or little) as you feel comfortable with. You will never be put under any commitment or pressure to do anything that you don’t wish to.


  • We’ll admire the Liverpool splendour  as we literally pass 10 meters beneath your ship (honestly!) on our 40-minute fully-narrated journey to the magnificent 2,000 year old Roman walled City of Chester, with areas of interest pointed out (like the City Walls, The Rows, the Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre and Europe’s infamous and oldest Horse Racing Course.
  • Our first point of call will be the Chester Visitor Centre where you may, at your discretion, join your escort for a 45-minute fully-guided walking adventure tour of this amazing 2,000 year old Roman City.
  • You’ll then be cast free to re-visit in more detail any of the highlights on the walking tour or to enjoy arguably the “best shopping in the UK”, with quaint twisting streets, including The Rows the most incredible, amazing, famous and unique shopping you’re ever likely to experience!
  • Walk beneath, next to and even touch the second most photographed clock in the UK, the Eastgate Clock. Sitting proudly above the Roman gated entrance on the former famous Watling Street Street adjacent to the 5* Grosvenor Hotel, this magnifcent timepiece was placed in 1897 to commemorate the diamond (60th) jubilee of Queen Victoria. In 2012 our current Queen Elizabeth 2nd matched this incredible achievement.
  • Enjoy lunch in this monumental and historic secret Roman City in one of the many traditional pubs or restaurants, with their medieval, twisted timber floors and creaking walls groaning angrily as they try to impart their historic stories upon you. Sample the World famous products that originated here like Cheshire Cheese and Weetwood Ale!
  •  For the more energetic walk the full 2-mile circular length high above the ground on the most complete medieval stone walls in the UK! Not only will yous see Chester from every vantage point, on a clear day you’ll see the mountains of Snowdonia (Wales) 45-miles away and the endless flat plains of Cheshire in the opposite direction where blood once saturated the fields during battles such as Rowton Heath (1645 Civil War). 
  •  Your guide will help you to plan your free-time itinerary and direct you to any attractions you might fancy visiting.
