The spacious bedrooms have air cooling systems, a TV, tea and coffee making facilities, private bathroom with complimentary toiletries and WiFi.

FRIDAY
We depart Macclesfield early in the morning calling for coffee en-route to Greenwich, where we meet our guide for an informative walking tour. The tour culminates at our hotel where we have ample time to unpack and relax. You will find lots of restaurants, pubs and cafés for dinner just a short walk from the hotel.

SATURDAY
A free day in Greenwich to enjoy all that is on offer. Why not take a trip across the Thames on the Emirates Air Line? The capital’s first cable car taking you from the Greenwich Peninsular to Royal Victoria Dock or perhaps a scenic boat trip up the Thames or a walk under the Thames. Yes there is a walkway underneath the Thames between Greenwich and Island Gardens, on the Isle of Dogs, with an entrance next to the Cutty Sark. The tunnel was opened in 1902 and has been recently refurbished. It is a public highway and free to walk through. With so much to see and do the choice is yours.

SUNDAY
After a leisurely breakfast you have the option of having a free morning or visiting the Cutty Sark, the world’s last surviving tea clipper. (The cost is £13.50 per person please confirm at time of booking if you would like to go). Built in Britain for the China tea trade, she was first sent off to sea in 1869 and was the fastest ship of her time, now it is an award winning attraction. Admire her impressive original interior and learn about her record-breaking passages around the world, there are lots of memorabilia from her voyages on show. After our visit there will be free time for lunch before boarding the coach for our journey home.
