transportation to and from Manchester Airport

by louiseks

Hello I am planning to go on a narrowboat cruise that departs from Chester and goes to Llangollen.. with the Dawn and Dusk ... I am looking forward to join them since I cannot walk large distances and I love to go on a boat . I will bring my scootie (a foldable little scootmobile) The advise is to travel from Amsterdam to Manchester Int Airport.. I would like to know how much the cab fair would be from the Airport to a nice Hotel in the City Center or even better is there a hotel with shuttle service.. Furthermore I will have to back to Machester Int. Airport from Llangollen. Should I go by train to Chester and take a cab from there or does anyone have a better option
Thanks in advance
Louise

hi
the taxi will probably costa a fortune! i would take the train from manchester airport to chester! manchester airport has got a railway station. you will have to change the train once (probably in manchester ).
timetable and fares can be checked at www.nationalrail.co.uk.

it is possible that there is a coach wich does the route. check www.gobycoach.com

greetings,

Take a train from the airport station into Piccadilly station and there are two hotels in nearby Picadilly Gardens you could choose - either the Britannia or the Picadilly Gardens. I stayed at the Gardens a few years ago and it was fine. Near G - Mex tram station is a better hotel called Jurys which is nearly new and my favourite Manchhester hotel. You could take a taxi from Picadilly station to either or could you ride your scootie and look after your luggage too? I think the scootie will go on a tram - the tram system is called Metrolink and they are on the web.
I think a taxi from the airport in to town would be at least £12.
There is a good train service to Chester from Piccadilly and the ride through the Delamere forest is nice.
Coming back from Llangolen the nearest railway station is Ruabon - you could pick up a train here which I think will go to Chester.
E mail me with any other questions. My wife is in a push wheelchair and we are thinking of buying a scootie.I would be interested to know how you get along with it on your travels.

I had great luck taking the National Express Coach (bus #381) directly from Manchester Airport to Chester. Check out the Chester Transportation tips for the details.

The bus to Chester from the airport is the most sensible and economical option assuming your buggy will go on as luggage which I expect it would, go to http://www.nationalexpress.com and hunt around for bsu times there and back. you can get a bus from Llangolen to Manchester airport but it only leaves at 7.45am and goes round the world to get there taking over 5 hrs. Let me know what time you intend to set off from Llangollen and what time you need to get to the airport and I'll have a look at local options for you.

Travel Tips for Chester

Chester Cross

by sandysmith

Chester Cross stands at the junction of Chester's four main streets and marks the heart of the city. Carved from local sandstone in the 15th-century, the Cross was badly vandalised during the English Civil War. Now much restored, it forms the backdrop for Chester's popular Town Crier who greets visitors from its steps at 12.00 noon, Tues-Sat, from Easter to October. A sunny June day and we met Steve and Susan Tilly at the cross here. We listened to the town crier as he greeted people from atound the world in their native tongue including Geordie language! Steve answered a question about chester and got a postcard for his efforts. It was a perfect day for walking around the walls and enjoying the sights of Chester.

Deva Fortress Wall

by sandysmith

On the opposite side of the road to the Bridge of Sighs a section of the old Deva fortress wall can be seen. It may not look much but apparently its the "best preserved sections of Roman military wall in North-West Europe", so I guess it was worth a pic ;-) The wall was built as a stone facing to a large turf bank behind. The sandstone blocks were incorporated into the medieval wall.

East Gate Clock

by bluesmama

As it says on the clock:

This clock was presented to the city by Edward Evans-Lloyd, citizen and freeman 1897

It also says VR on the top so it is probably also in honour of Queen Victoria.

It is at East Gate, which is on one end of one of the main streets. At East Gate there are steps to the city walls and you can walk on the walls around almost all of the old town.

chester city walls

by stemc

chester still has intact it`s city walls which were repaired after the seige of chester if you have just over a hour to spur take a stroll around the walls and enjoy the the views of the river and the distant welsh hills .
along the walls are various plaques pointing out aspects of interest and giving you a history of the walls and events that happen during the seige of chester between 1644 to 1646

The Roman Gardens

by gordonilla

At first view, I did think these were established in the times of the Roman occupation. However, I am advised they were in fact created in 1949 adjacent to the city wall. They were formed by the use of a number of columns and bases discovered in locations across the city.

In addition to the use of the columns and the like, they have reconstructed a Roman hypocaust. They have also used plants, trees and shrubs which have a Roman theme or association.

The gardens are popular with tourists and the workers from nearby offices and shops.
