A quick guide to Cheshire 

Often referred to as one of the most desirable counties in the UK, Cheshire offers a city vibe against a backdrop of English countryside. And with plenty of shops, attractions and beauty spots to explore, it's ideal for a weekend break or holiday. 

It’s mostly known for luxury hangouts, stylish boutiques and leafy villages that are home to the rich and famous. But travel to the outcrop of Alderley Edge or venture out to Cheshire’s Peak District and you’re sure to be struck by Cheshire’s natural beauty too. 

Cheshire has been described by Visit England as somewhere you can really experience the high life and one of its villages has been recently named as one of the best places to live in North West England. So why not discover Cheshire for yourself on a holiday to remember?

Things to do in Cheshire

In Cheshire you can visit some of the best attractions in the UK. And with so many options it’s never been simpler to create an unpacked break that suits you. 

Obsessed with all things entertainment? A visit to the multi award-winning Storyhouse in Chester is a must for those in search of blockbuster movies, epic live productions and open air theatre and cinema festivals. All under 30 minutes away from our new location.

Inside this £37m restored building there’s lots to discover. The main attractions are the boutique independent cinema and a secret storytelling den for children situated in the library. There’s also a studio theatre and 800-seat auditorium where you can watch everything from musicals to stand up comedians. Before the show, pop into the fourth floor bar The Garret  for panoramic views of Chester. 

If a foodie break is more your style, you’re in the right spot. Enjoy an Alice and Wonderland themed afternoon tea just two miles from where author Lewis Carroll was born. Head to the Fishpool Inn for comforting meals in a cosy space nestled at the edge of Delamere Forest. Or plan your visit around the International Cheese Awards where you can meet your favourite celebrity chefs. 

There’s also a range of independent restaurants dotted around Chester, alongside fine dining establishments that offer an unrivalled eating-out experience. Our tip? Book a table at Palm Court in Chester where seasonal dishes are served against a backdrop of calming greenery. There’s a Laurent-Perrier wine cave onsite too.
