3 min read
If you are planning to spend a day out in Chester, you will want to make sure that you have a great time making enjoyable memories. Luckily for you, there is so much to do in Chester that you will not be disappointed. Founded as a Roman Fortress, there are still remnants of what the Romans left behind, but also plenty of new modern attractions that will definitely keep you busy.

Chester Roman Amphitheatre

As the largest Amphitheatre in Britain this is a must see. Step into the grounds and let your imagination take over. The Amphitheatre would have been used for entertainment as well as weapon training and troop manoeuvres, so if you like a bit of history this is the place for you.

Chester Zoo

Established in the 1930s Chester Zoo is now home to over 20,000 creatures. It is also the zoo in which the BBC Drama ‘Our Zoo’ was based on. If you have a passion for rhinos, or elephants or even butterflies there is plenty for you to see. You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy the zoo, seeing animals you never normally see is great for any age.

Blue Planet Aquarium

If you fancy a trip under the sea, dive on into the Blue Planet Aquarium. Take a walk through the Undersea Walkway or a meander through the Flooded Forest. Full access tours are available and you can get up close to the creatures in the Rock Pools. You can even go for a shark dive, if you think you are brave enough.

West Cheshire Museums

The West Cheshire Museums are a group of museums which give an insight into the history of Cheshire. The museums are Chester History & Heritage, Weaver Hall, Stretton Watermill, Lion Salt Works and Grosvenor Museum. If you want to know more about the industry of Cheshire of the years or just the life and times of the people of Cheshire there will be something to peek your interest.

Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral is undoubtedly stunning to see, inside and out the architecture is truly magnificent. Whether you are religious or not, taking in the sites of Chester Cathedral will not be a waste of time. Originally a Benedictine Abbey in 1092, the Cathedral has a long and diverse history, so you can easily step into the past with a visit here.

Peckforton Castle

This medieval castle was built between 1842-1851 by John Tollemache. It was then used as a hostel in World War II to house 200 physically injured children. Since then it has been granted a grade 1 listed building status and is now open for all to see. You can visit the 1851 restaurant or take in the beauty of its wine cellar.  You can even now stay in one of its 48 buildings, what a perfect way to indulge in history.
