Helping you plan your stay in Chester

Historic Chester is brimming with ancient architecture and a stroll around the centre of town will take visitors past a kernel of Victorian and black and white Tudor buildings, all of which sit proudly within Chester's Roman-era red-sandstone city walls. Picture quaint courtyards, stone arches, riverside promenades, winding cobbled alleyways, and overhanging eaves, and you'll get why Chester's such a tourist magnet. The city's also got a cosmopolitan vibe, and a buzzing food scene to match, with top-notch restaurants serving modern British cuisine to farmers markets offering anything from freshly butchered meats to oddly shaped vegetables.

Where to stay in Chester

Chester's a compact city and staying in the city centre means you'll be able to explore its sites easily on foot. It can get a little noisy around Watergate Street with late-night revellers spilling into the street come kicking out time. Families will enjoy the hotels around the perfectly landscaped Grosvenor Park, where you can chill out in its sweeping lawns and soak up views of the River Dee. If you're after a B&B, you'll find a cluster in Hoole, just east of the city. This area has its own traditionally British pubs and a few local shops and is just a mile from Chester's city centre.

Things to see in Chester

Home to the most complete city walls in the UK, Chester's a historic gem, and as you stroll around the 2 mile-long red-sandstone wall that encircles the city, you can't help but swoon over the grand gates, towers, and nearby remains of Chester Castle, a once mighty stone fortress. Steeped in history, Chester Cathedral is crammed full of sights to see, with freestanding bell tower, Norman and Gothic arches, mosaics depicting scenes from the Old Testament, ecclesiastical courtroom, and pretty cloisters. The whole family will enjoy a day out at Chester Zoo, home to elephants, monkeys, unique bat cave, and much more, while Chester's famed Roodee Racecourse offers plenty of buzz as punters cheer on horses galloping down the home straights.

Travelling to Chester

International visitors to Chester may find John Lennon Airport in nearby Liverpool the easiest point of entry, and from there you can catch a train to Chester. The city is also well-linked to the rest of the UK by rail and sits on the North Wales Coast line with direct trains to the likes of London, Liverpool, and Manchester. When it comes to getting around and exploring the city, local buses are pretty reliable and convenient, but you can't beat going on foot and soaking up the historical sights and lively atmosphere.
