Liverpool & China's Terracotta Warriors

Based at The CROWN PLAZA HOTEL

DEPARTS FRIDAY 24TH AUGUST

RETURNS SUNDAY 26TH AUGUST

 

3 DAYS FROM £169

 

The very name ‘Liverpool’ conjures up images of a glorious maritime history, world beating musical heritage, Premiership football and not one, but two, majestically different cathedrals. The city combines fabulous shopping with cosmopolitan restaurants and wine bars and more museums and galleries than anywhere outside London.

 

Included in our tour will be a visit to see ‘China’s First Emperor and Terracotta Warriors Exhibition’ at the World Museum. This will be the first time in more than 10 years that these spectacular warriors from the tomb of China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, have been brought to the UK.

 

Our base in Liverpool is the very comfortable CROWN PLAZA HOTEL which is located near John Lennon Airport on the outskirts of the city. The hotel is based around a former art deco style terminal building; there is a vintage aircraft stationed outside the entrance and the lounge and reception area once saw thousands of fans greeting the Beatles when they passed through the airport in their 60’s heyday. Features of the hotel include two restaurants and a cocktail bar and guests have complimentary use of the nearby David Lloyd Leisure Centre. All of the well appointed bedrooms have tv, hairdryer, iron/ironing board and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors. Please note - our feeder service, loyalty scheme and early booking discounts do not apply to this tour.

BRIEF ITINERARY

Friday 24th August
Departing Newark early morning (please see specified pick up points below) we utilise the motorway system to travel north west arriving in Liverpool for approximately lunchtime. The afternoon will then be yours free to explore the city at your leisure before being met by our coach for the short journey to our hotel on the outskirts of the city.

Saturday 25th August
After a leisurely breakfast we journey into Liverpool for a visit to the World Museum and the Terracotta Army exhibition. Visitors will be given a glimpse into the extraordinary story of Qin Shihuangdi, the First Emperor of China whose vast burial site and tomb complex was discovered near Xi’an in North West China in 1974. Over 6000 warriors were buried alongside the emperor as protection in the afterlife and it is said no two are alike. This exhibition will include a selection of warriors and artefacts that have never been on show in this country before including material from museums and institutes from across Shaanxi Province, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs.

Sunday 26th August
Our coach will transfer passengers into Liverpool city centre for a free morning at leisure; options could include taking the Ferry across the Mersey or visiting the Maritime Museum or Tate Modern (both of which are free to enter). Our coach will then depart mid afternoon, arriving back to Newark for approximately teatime.
