Cheshire, an English county to leave you grinning

Leafy Cheshire in England’s North West brings together centuries of history and scenic countryside dotted with quaint villages, affluent market towns and posh hotels. Criss-crossed by canals, the landscape of stately homes and dairy farms producing famous Cheshire cheese supposedly inspired the saying “grinning like a Cheshire cat” because local felines loved the abundance of milk. Don’t miss Chester for Roman history, double-decker shopping streets and well-preserved city walls. Served by motorways and Manchester Airport, Cheshire also offers top museums and attractions plus outdoor activities in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

Discover shopping, nightlife and history galore in Chester

History buffs can indulge their passion in Cheshire’s county town of Chester. The compact and attractive city centre still bears the hallmarks of the Roman occupation of Britain. Chief among them are the ruins of Chester Roman Amphitheatre, which hosted gladiatorial combat 2,000 years ago when Chester was a Roman fort known as Deva Victrix. The city walls, which almost entirely enclose central Chester, were started by the Romans and further fortified in medieval times. Visitors can enjoy a two-mile walk along them, but if all that walking seems excessive you can instead take a relaxing trip on the River Dee aboard a pleasure cruiser to enjoy some waterborne sightseeing. Britain’s oldest racecourse, Chester Racecourse, is also in the city centre and hosts frequent horse-racing meets. Constructed from distinctive local red sandstone, medieval Chester Cathedral invites those with a head for heights on tours of the upper reaches of the building, culminating in a walk up 200 steps to the top of its tower offering superb views of Chester. Animal lovers won’t want to miss family-friendly Chester Zoo, which showcases 20,000 animals from about 500 exotic and endangered species including tigers, orangutans and rhinos.

Shopaholics and party animals alike can enjoy two high streets in one, in the heart of Chester, where many of the most popular hotels in Cheshire are found. The galleried double-decker shopping parades known as the Chester Rows boast shops at street level plus a second tier of outlets above. They are filled with independent shops, big brand retailers and designer boutiques plus cafes, restaurants and bars. The distinctive architectural style dominates Eastgate Street, Watergate Street and Bridge Street, where black and white timber-framed Tudor buildings sit alongside handsome Victorian and Georgian buildings.

Enjoy attractions and museums across Cheshire

Wherever your hotel is, towns and villages across Cheshire offer visitors of all kinds much to see and do. Industrial Ellesmere Port in the west is home to Cheshire Oaks retail outlet village where shoppers can browse for big brand bargains. The nearby Blue Planet Aquarium is perfect for a family day out with its sharks, rays and tropical fish. The town also hosts the National Waterways Museum at the junction of the Shropshire Union Canal and the Manchester Ship Canal. Housing a vast collection of traditionally-decorated canal boats, this museum showcases Britain’s canal network, which brings many lovers of boating holidays to Cheshire. Meanwhile, Macclesfield in eastern Cheshire has museums about the town’s heyday as a centre for the silk industry. Its cemetery also features a memorial to Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis, who grew up and died in the town. Heading south, visitors can marvel at the Tudor architecture in Nantwich town centre. Each July, it hosts the annual International Cheese Awards that take place in the county because of its tradition of making crumbly and salty Cheshire cheese, Britain’s oldest recorded cheese.

Near Northwich, the lovingly-restored Anderton Boat Lift was built by the Victorians so boats could navigate the 15 metre drop between the Trent and Mersey Canal and the River Weaver. It still operates today and now features a visitor centre. The top-heavy Tudor stately home of Little Moreton Hall, near Congleton, is one of Cheshire’s most notable and has been fully restored by heritage experts. Open to visitors from April to December, this half- timbered and moated manor house dating from the early 16th century was constructed in increasingly lavish phases as the wealth of the family who owned it grew down the generations.

See the stars and get back to nature

Attracted by Cheshire’s dark skies, astronomers set up Jodrell Bank Observatory in the countryside between Knutsford and Macclesfield. It houses the Lovell Telescope, one of the largest steerable dish radio telescopes in the world. There’s also a visitor centre hosting exhibits and events about space and stargazing. The hilly eastern edge of the county is the gateway to the beautiful Peak District National Park, which spreads into neighbouring Derbyshire and Staffordshire. This idyllic, protected landscape is ideal for lovers of the great outdoors and offers opportunities for walking, cycling, horse-riding, paragliding, potholing and rock climbing.
