In 2018, a unique blockbuster exhibition comes to Liverpool from China, when the World Museum welcomes China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors.
Sunday We depart and travel to the Liverpool for time at leisure. Known worldwide as the birthplace of the Beatles, Liverpool has a strong maritime history and a rich cultural heritage to explore. We depart later this afternoon for the journey to the outskirts of Liverpool and the Crowne Plaza Liverpool John Lennon Airport. This evening enjoy a three course evening meal.
Monday Following breakfast, we return to Liverpool with included entrance to the World Museum and China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition. Showcasing objects from one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, this unmissable exhibition spans almost 1,000 years of Chinese history; from the conflicts and chaos of the Warring States period, to the achievements and legacy of the Qin and Han dynasties. The exhibition will include a number of objects that have never been on show in the UK before including material from museums and institutes from across Shaanxi Province, excavated over the last 40 years from the Imperial Mausoleum and selected tombs. These spectacular artefacts will shed light on the Emperor's pursuit of immortality and show how he prepared for the afterlife, as well as help us to understand more about everyday life in China more than two thousand years ago. We depart later this afternoon to make our journey home.
