Guide:   Hello everyone. I just want to tell you about our trip to the town of Chester. The coach will leave at nine fifteen tomorrow morning. It takes about an hour and a half to get to Chester, so we will arrive at a quarter to eleven. You will have time for a cup of coffee before our first visit. This will be to the castle. It is a very interesting old building and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the visit. Tickets for the castle cost three pounds fifty for adults and, if you have children, a family ticket is just eight pounds. There are lots of things to see and we will be there about two hours.

We will take sandwiches for lunch with us and we will all eat together in a park. You will be pleased to know that tomorrow is going to be sunny. After lunch, we will walk round the old market. You will be able to buy all your presents there. Now, any questions?
