  • From the train stations to the public houses it is between 5-15 minutes walk.
  • Whilst Tanya is the volunteer co-ordinator for this event, it is individual’s responsibility to ensure that they board and get off the trains at the relevant stations as it may not be possible to keep everyone together on board the train.

Cancellation Policy: Please note that we have to pay the pub for your lunch 2 weeks ahead of the event so the cancellation policy for this event is 14 days rather than the usual 7 days ahead of the event. If you need to cancel within the 14 days we can only organise a refund in the event that we manage to sell on your place and your menu choice!

We were due to make our first visit to this highly rated private hostel in 2020 but of course our plans were curtailed as were so many others.
This event has now gone live for June 2022 and is 60% full already.
If Chester was on your list of places to explore further and you fancy joining a great group of fun, sociable people to experience this great city then why not join us for this fabulous weekend away.
The member early bird price gives great value at £115 for 2 nights accommodation, 2 breakfasts and a Friday night buffet plus the services of a friendly Spice Host.

We are already looking forward to visiting the fabulous Conwy/Conway in North Wales on our forthcoming Spice Exclusive Hostel Weekend where we plan to kickstart out Christmas programme of events.
We have taken over the YHA and have lots of plans including a bit of festive crafting, carol singing, blue badge guided tours, secret Santa and of course dancing & eating with maybe a little bit of festive cheer too!
With 70 people already booked this great value weekend is bound to be a super event with your Spice friends.
If you are new to Spice or want to know more about getting out and meeting new, like-minded people from across the U.K. then please don't hesitate to give your local Spice office a call.
You'll have the opportunity to experience for yourself:
• Meeting like-minded people
• Making new friends
• Learning new skills
• And taking part in fun and social events.
You too can look back fondly on this moment as being one of the best things you ever did in your life.
We hope you can join us on an event soon where you can meet like minded people and share amazing new experiences!
See you there!
