Manchester Ship Canal                               20 - 23 May

Holiday Inn, MediaCity, Salford Quays

 Join us for a tour with an exciting edge and something completely different: staying in the heart  of the action at Mediacity UK in Salford Quays, Manchester.  We will have close access to the major attractions and maybe spot some household names and stars in this marvellous location

Our main event is a trip down the Manchester Ship Canal as we enjoy a fascinating journey along the inland waterway with the legendary Mersey Ferries.  The full day cruise takes in some spectacular scenery  which leaves you with an awe-inspiring sense of how the canal's construction shaped the city of Manchester and the North West.  It seems as if you are going on a journey through time, through locks and under bridges mostly unchanged since they were built over 100 years ago.  We will see the succession of swing bridges as they turn through 90 degrees to allow ships to pass.  There are panoramic views, historic buildings, industrial landscapes and beautiful countryside, surrounded by nature's beauty and tranquillity.  The cruise ends in Liverpool where a coach will be waiting to pick us up and take us back to Salford Quays.

Our tours of the BBC’s Broadcasting House in London have been so popular and we are sure you will enjoy this tour at the state-of-the-art studios in Mediacity, where many of the programmes we now watch are made.

The third place you will want to see is The Lowry, a stunning architectural achievement and home to a contemporary art gallery as well as a theatre.  There are various local places to eat in a variety of styles so on one of the three evenings you will be free to choose your dining place, soak up the atmosphere and see the evening lights.  The meals on the first and last nights will be taken in the hotel’s restaurant.
