Chester

Rows of overhanging black-and-white timbered houses, and almost complete medieval city walls with goblin towers will make you go 'wow' in Chester. Base yourself in this Cheshire city to explore the rambling stately mansions and turreted castles of the northwest, with landscaped gardens to die for. Wildlife lovers can trace the food chain from tiny bugs to giant Asian elephants at Chester Zoo. This gastronomic city throws regular food and drinks festivals, so loosen the belt a notch for locally made chocolate truffles and lashings of Cheshire Farm ice cream.
