Historic Streets of Chester

Many visitors to The City Apartments ask for information about things to see and do in and around Chester. Here are some of the main reasons to visit this part of England:

The Chester Racecourse
Visit the oldest race course in Britain for first class flat racing – horse racing is perhaps what Chester is most famous for!

The World Famous Chester Zoo
Chester has one of the largest and oldest zoos in Europe and is open virtually every day of the year!

The Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village
Probably the largest designer outlet shopping mall in the UK, conveniently located near the M53 motorway 9 miles from Chester.

Liverpool and the Wirral Peninsula
Liverpool is only a 30 minute drive from Chester and there is a regular train service between the 2 cities. The birthplace of the Beatles, Liverpool has several world class Grade I and Grade II listed buildings and museums. Highly recommended tourist attractions in Liverpool include The Cavern Club and the Beatles Museum, both open all year round!

North Wales – Snowdonia
North Wales is on the doorstep of Chester and is the home of the glorious Snowdonia mountain ranges and lakes – ideal for hill walking and climbing. There are also many historic castles and stately homes to visit in this area.

The Stately Homes of Cheshire
Cheshire hosts some of the greatest National Trust stately homes and gardens!

Chester’s Cathedral and Amphitheatre
Chester has one of the great Saxon Cathedrals of Britain and is also home to the country’s largest Roman Amphitheatre, which is currently undergoing an archaeological excavation.
