Places to visit in Cheshire

There are so many fun things to do in Cheshire. Stroll around one of the region’s stunning gardens for a perfect introduction to the county. Take the kids to Gulliver’s World for a magical day at a theme park. Trace England’s Viking heritage to the water's edge on the Wirral Peninsula. Flex your credit card in Roman Chester's elegant boutiques, tucked under crofts of medieval half-timbered townhouses and modern designer outlets. Or head to market towns for local produce and pub lunches. We highly recommend scoops of the local delicacy – Cheshire Farm ice cream – so why not visit Cheshire and take in these delights for yourself?
