Must-see places to visit around the UK: Chester

The 2000 year old city of Chester lies on the River Dee in Cheshire near to the Wales border.

Chester is steeped in history, culture and distinctive 19th century black-and-white revival architecture. A must-do attraction for your group is visiting the Roman and medieval walls encircling the city. Originally a defensive function, they have now been converted into an elevated two-mile walkway around the perimeter. You can also experience the unique Chester Rows which are 13th century covered walkways that lead to two different levels of shops and restaurants.

Alternatively, take a river cruise, a walking “ghost” tour or visit the award-winning Cheshire Zoo with more than 11,000 animals or the Blue Planet Aquarium’s Caribbean Reef display. Free attractions include the Cheshire Cathedral or the Cheshire Peak District where visitors can see the stunning moorlands, peaks, and outcrops.

We can provide homestays in Chester as well as hostels and hotels. For an itinerary and quote to experience this fantastic city, please visit: www.maypoletravel.com or email: info@maypoletravel.com (Photo: Flickr/Matthew_Hartley).
