To discover more about the history of Chester, the Grosvenor Museum offers an informative and more importantly free day out! Those interested in the Romans should not miss this, as there is an interesting exhibition of Roman artefacts excavated from the area from when the city was occupied by them. Another popular museum is the Cheshire Military Museum, which even includes a replica trench from WWI.

With the River Dee flowing through the city, one of the best ways to appreciate your surroundings is to take a boat trip. It’s also possible to combine the hop-on hop-off bus tour with a boat trip. The banks of the river are particularly beautiful and many choose to simply walk them, stopping off at one of the cafes en route for lunch. In the evening, head to Upstairs at the Grill for a romantic meal and award winning cuisine.

Chester Zoo is not to be missed, especially for those holidaying with children. See what the cheeky orangutuans are up to at Europe’s largest orangutan enclosure, wander through the UK’s biggest butterfly house and try your hand at mini golf in the children’s play area. There’s even face painting on offer, so kids can dress up as their favourite animal, and with daily talks and feeding sessions it’s an educational day out too. The zoo also has a selection of eateries on offer, from the Acorn Pub and BBQ to June’s Pavilion. And afterwards, treasure your stay with a souvenir from the gift shop!
