Get in the festive spirit and spend Christmas in Chester

Chester, Cheshire

Go ice-skating, visit Santa, sip on mulled wine and spend the weekend celebrating all things festive in the beautiful city of Chester.

Take a trip to Winter Wonderland on Chester Racecourse. Go ice-skating and have a go on the fairground rides before you warm up with a hot chocolate.

Make sure to visit Santa before heading to the Christmas Market in the heart of Chester. Here you can browse the wonderfully English stalls, enjoy a delicious pork and apple bap and a mug of steaming mulled wine.

Make sure to visit Chester Zoo’s Lantern Magic for an unforgettable nighttime journey through the zoo. Enjoy the beautiful lantern lit gardens and the magnificent larger than life animal lanterns, meet the friendly festive characters and sample deliciously tasty treats. 

Outside the magnificent manor house you’ll see several beautiful animal lanterns. A lovely way to get in the festive spirit!
