History buffs will be in their element in Chester and the surrounding areas, as there is a wealth of diverse museums and historical sights of interest to discover. In Chester, take a tour around the historic walls that once protected the city against siege. The romans originally built the walls, but much of it was later rebuilt in medieval times. Outside of the city, the Anderton Boat Lift, built in 1875, was once used to lift boats out of the River Weaver and is of great engineering significance. The interactive educational displays are sure to keep the whole family engaged. The Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse is also nearby and describes the history of industry in Cheshire through film, models, artefacts and reconstructions whilst the workhouse focuses on the life of the poor including their cruel working conditions.
