The Tour of Britain

Tuesday 09 September 2014 by Craig Neilson We’re pretty excited here at the SACO Head Office – the Tour of Britain is coming to Bristol this Wednesday and it will quite literally be on our doorstep. Riders will tackle “Bridge Valley Road” – a climb that I choose to avoid on my daily commute!

Once we realised this, we thought we should see what other SACO locations the route will take the riders by:  


Stage 1 - Staybridge Suites Liverpool (Liverpool)

You’ll find this apartments in an excellent location at Kings Waterfront, adjacent to ECHO Arena and BT Convention Centre and next door to the Albert Docks, The Beatles Story, Tate Liverpool and Liverpool One. Here you’ll be just a 10 minute walk away to the popular Liverpool One, boasting over 42 acres of shops, restaurants and bars. Each apartment is modern in design and décor, and guests can benefit from the onsite Pantry convenience store (which is open 24 hours a day) and communal breakfast service.   

Stage 2 – Westminster House Apartments (Knowsley to Llandudno)

With over 2000 years of treasured history, and now a popular shopping destination, Chester is popular with local and international visitors. Home to a 1000 year old cathedral, the oldest racecourse and largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain and the most visited tourist attraction outside of London, Chester Zoo. Westminster House Apartments are located just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Chester in a quiet and residential neighbourhood within the village of Hoole.  Each two bed apartment has all the kitchen facilities you’ve come to expect from an apartment, as well as a comfortable living area and relaxing double bedrooms – all combining to make it a convenient base to explore this impressive city.  

Stage 3 – SACO Cardiff - Cathedral Road (Newton to Tumble) 

OK so the Tour of Britain route doesn’t quite pass our stylish apartments in Cardiff, but we couldn’t talk about Wales without mentioning them. You’ll find this mixture of spacious one and two beds situated in the fashionable Pontcanna area, with plenty of places to dine out or relax. Take a short stroll into the centre of Cardiff in just 10 minutes to explore the shops, museums, galleries and historic attractions. Our apartments are literally minutes from the Millennium Stadium. Every apartments is furnished to the highest standards, whilst the two bedroom apartments also include an en-suite shower room.
