Chester Activities and Things To Do
The Roman/Medieval city of Chester is a great destination for the historically inclined, and you could do much worse if looking for a party destination, for a stag/hen do or birthday group. The city is characterful and ancient, not that you’d notice after a night in the clubs…
Located just south of Liverpool, near the Welsh border, Chester is convenient to get to, if travelling from the north or even the midlands, but would be quite a journey if travelling from down south. From Manchester, simply follow the M56 west, then the M53 for the final step of the way. Chester also sports a railway station, offering trains to Manchester and Birmingham amongst other places.
For those interested in exploring the town’s history, visiting the city walls may prove a fascinating experience, as they are the most complete city walls in Britain. Other historical points of interest include the town hall, the cathedral and Chester Castle. In addition there is a Roman amphitheatre currently undergoing archaeological investigation. Can’t get enough of the Roman history? Why not have a meal at the Spudulike restaurant that features a Roman hypocaust in the basement!
Not into history? The biggest zoo in the UK: Chester Zoo is worth a visit for something a bit different, with many (actually over 11,000) critters to gawp at. A relatively recent addition the Chester events calendar, but certainly worth going to, is MBNA Chester Music Festival. For those into sport, the city’s football team, Chester City FC, is worth watching although they present no danger to any of the Premier League teams. You could also play a spot of 9-hole golf in Westminster Park if that takes your fancy. For nightlife, Cruise Nightclub, D Melting Pot and City Bar are all good choices.
