All aboard the Danny & Liverpool Albert Docks

With Roberts Travel Group

Prices from...

£0

Today we board the historic, full restored SS Daniel Adamson from Ellesmere Port to enjoy a 90 minute minicruise.  Afterwards we will have a short visit to Albert Docks in Liverpool to compliment your day. 

Your mini cruise will give you an insight into the activity and shipping on the Manchester Ship Canal, opened in 1894 as a 36 mile maritime highway allowing ocean going ships to navigate into the heart of Manchester.

Depending on shipping movements and where we are allowed to sail at the time, we will either sail up the canal for 45 minutes passing through Stanlow oil refinery where large ships can often be seen loading or discharging cargo and then up through Frodsham marshes (a hot spot for birdlife) where we will turn around and head back.

The contrast in such a short trip between the industrial and scenic parts of the canal make this a fascinating glimpse onto this historic waterway. Alternatively, as shipping dictates, we will sail downstream to Eastham locks where the canal enters the tidal River Mersey. We will pass through the fascinating Mount Manistya manmade mountain of spoil from the canal & excavation and back up stream as far as Stanlow refinery to hopefully see some shipping before a return to Ellesmere Port

 


A stunningly restored 114 year old ship steam ship, with two Art Deco saloons and a raised observation deck, the SS Daniel Adamson has been described as a 1930's transatlantic liner but in minature. 

Travel in comfort on one of our executive air conditioned coaches fitted with a host of modern amenities including onboard washroom/WC, reclining seats and footrests to compliments your day out.
