A great north-western city absolutely swimming in history and intrigue, Chester is a gorgeous and unique city situated on the Welsh border, just below Liverpool. The city was founded way back in the 1st century AD as a Roman fortress and is still known today for the Roman walls that surround it in red sandstone. The first thing you’ll notice is the architecture, with the rows of black-and-white timbered houses lining the city’s many busy high streets.
Today, it boasts not only plenty for history buffs to take in, but some truly wonderful local attractions, which include stunning gardens, grand stately homes and more. The area is also home to the world-famous Chester Zoo, which is one of the largest and oldest zoos of its kind in the world!
Chester is also a city where the contemporary meets the historic. Whilst there are 2,000 years of history to explore in the old town, it’s also gained a reputation as a shopper’s paradise and contains many top bars, restaurants and night spots. That’s not to mention the various annual food and drinks festivals that make Chester a truly gastronomic city!
So whether you’re taking in a show at the brand new, award-winning Storyhouse theatre complex, tracing the city’s Roman heritage, planning a day at the races, indulging in a spot of shopping along the famous “Rows,” (which themselves date back from the medieval era and are built on the ruins of old Roman buildings) or looking for a city break with a little more than the usual to offer, Chester is ready to welcome you with open arms.
