Chester Zoo

Chester Cathedral is one of the city's most impressive and recognisable attractions, and is open for visits and tours throughout the year. It's a great attraction for those with an interest in architecture or religion, and just one of many attractions to visit during your stay. The Cheshire Ice Cream Farm just south of the city centre is a firm family favourite with play facilities, an ice cream parlour and an animal corner and duck pond, whilst to the north of the city centre Chester's Blue Planet Aquarium gives visitors the chance to dive with sharks or to simply view them, and other marine creatures, from behind the safety of glass.

Chester Zoo also just north of the city centre is the UK's biggest and houses over 4,000 animals, whilst the Dewa Roman Experience lets visitors enjoy an interactive, hands-on look at Chester's interesting Roman history. Kids can burn off their excess energy at Chester's largest indoor play area, Sticky Fingers, and the whole family can get together for a walk around the city walls or an afternoon at the impressive Grosvenor Museum. With too much to enjoy in just one day, stay for a short break or holiday. Use our site to find Chester accommodation. Book a stay online or direct, after comparing prices to get a great deal.

Chester Boat Trips

Hop aboard a pleasure cruise along the River Dee and enjoy the sights and scenes of historic Chester from the water. Boat trips push right under the suspension bridge passing pretty Grosvenor Park and The Earls Eye conservation area. Day and Evening boat charter and a range of fun themed cruises great for party events and Hen weekends are also available.

Chester Ghost Tours

Choose from a selection of fun themed tours around ancient Chester lasting around one hour. Particularly popular are Chester Ghost Tours running several times a week and bookable at the Town Hall Visitor Information Centre. Ghost tours take in numerous spooky Chester haunts and corners or opt for other themed walking tours including Victorian Chester, the 2 mile Walls Walk with spectacular views of the city and surrounding countryside and Chester Taste and Treats Tours exploring the rich history of fine Cheshire food and drink, inclusive of samplings!
