Why Visit ? Different Towns and Villages


If you want history and good amenities together, head for Cheshire’s county seat of Chester, once a Roman fort and still retaining large chunks of its city walls, with the remains of a Roman amphitheatre just outside them. Shop in the double-level covered arcades of the famous Rows that go back seven hundred years, with black and white Tudor-style fronts (mostly, but not all, striking Victorian additions), or marvel at the medieval carvings in the thousand-year-old cathedral. Visit the excellent, well-run zoo, have a flutter at Chester Races, or hop on a tour bus (or boat) to see it all, before you seek out your hotel or b&b for the night – its proximity to Wales makes it a good base.

star Cheap Accommodation in Cheshire

There are plenty of family-friendly activities in the county, such as Gulliver’s World theme park at Warrington, with fantastic rides and hotels within easy reach. Let the kids loose on the Go Ape! Treetop Adventure or other activities at Delamere Forest near Northwich, then cool them down at Tattenhall’s Ice Cream Farm.

While you’re in the Northwich area, take a look at the award-winning Anderton Boat Lift, otherwise known as the Cathedral of the Canals and an impressive example of Victorian engineering, lifting barges and boats fifty feet on a vertical link between the Trent and Mersey Canal and the River Weaver. Northwich was a Roman town with salt extraction as its main industry for hundreds of years, and you can discover its heritage at the Lion Salt Works, while the town’s Weaver Hall offers a glimpse of West Cheshire’s past. Accommodation ranges from cheaper chain hotels and b&bs in Northwich to country house retreats in the surrounding countryside.

Investigate the interactive galleries in Catalyst Science Discovery Centre at Widnes, and catch up with the sharks and other marine life at Ellesmere Port’s Blue Planet Aquarium, where scuba divers will feed the fish before your eyes. Then visit the National Waterways Museum in the same town, or go shopping at nearby Cheshire Oaks outlet. If you’re on a family budget, there is a good choice of cheap hotels and b&bs in the wider area.

Spend a day at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre to see the well-known Lovell Telescope outside Macclesfield. This attractive market town boasts the fascinating Silk Museum, multiple festivals, and several nearby historic homes, such as Gawsworth and Capesthorne. It’s worth a night’s stay either in or around Macclesfield, whether you opt for somewhere with upmarket facilities such as a spa and wellness centre, or choose one of the high-quality but cheaper bed and breakfast establishments.

Quarry Bank Mill will give you an insight into working life during the Industrial Revolution. An ex-textile mill and village on the Styal estate in Wilmslow, it’s a working museum that makes for an absorbing day out. Wilmslow itself is an affluent town eleven miles south of Manchester, with hotels and b&bs to suit all budgets.

The county contains an amazing array of stately houses open to the public, including Arley Hall near Northwich, Lyme Park with its own deer park in the adjoining Peak District, East Cheshire’s Tatton Park, and the already-mentioned Capesthorne and Gawsworth. Among the half-timbered Tudor buildings waiting to be viewed is Little Moreton Hall near Congleton, an atmospheric manor house complete with moat and knot garden. Or pop in for a peaceful half-hour at the black-and-white church of St. James and St. Paul in the village of Marton, one of Europe’s oldest churches with a timber frame.

You’ll have no trouble finding a spot to stay in Cheshire whether you’re after a cheap no-frills alternative or something more ambitious. If you want something more personal, a quality bed and breakfast stay or a boutique hotel could provide that romantic touch of a special visit to add to your memories of Cheshire.
