5 Reasons You Need to Visit Cheshire | UK

One of my favourite places to visit in the UK is definitely Cheshire. It’s stunning, there’s so much to do and it is really close by to my home town, so never takes *too* long to get there.

I actually used to go all the time as a child and so whenever I visit as an adult, I feel super nostalgic for all of the things I used to do with my family. 

For those of you that have never been, Cheshire is a county in North West England. It’s home to Chester and other towns like Crewe, Ellesmere Port and Macclesfield.

Property Developers, Laurus Homes, have asked me to share the reasons I love Cheshire and why you should visit this incredible County.

The stunning Cheshire country side

Although I am a city girl at heart, there are so many beautiful parts of Cheshire to explore, especially when it comes to the country side. Whether you want to go on one of the many Cheshire walks, cycle your way through gorgeous greenery or climb the rocky ridges for those stunning views – there is so much for a nature lover to explore.

Exploring the gorgeous city of Chester 

Chester is definitely one of my favourite cities in the UK as it combines that classic British heritage with the hustle and bustle of a city. You can walk the city walls for the best views of the city, shop until your hearts content in the city centre and stroll along the river front for a quieter escape. With lots of Roman history to explore, Chester has a fascinating history to the incredible buildings you can still see today.

Amazing days out for families  

Cheshire has tonnes of different days out for families, with two of my favourites being Chester do and the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm. We used to visit the Ice Cream Farm on the way back from our weekend trips to North Wales, and I remember loving it back then too. It’s changed a lot now, with a lot more for kids (and adults) to enjoy. The zoo, of course, is also a great place to visit for a day trip! 

The history and heritage 

Chester and Cheshire have some incredible history, all of which is very apparent as soon as you visit. From the Roman history of the city, to the history of the Cheshire barges, there’s something for everyone.

Museums and National Trust

I’ve mentioned in a few of the points above that Cheshire has an incredible history and stunning scenery, which means it’s filled with tonnes of museums and National Trust sites to visit. Museums include the National Waterways Museum, the Port Sunlight Museum and the Macclesfield Silk Museum.

Have you ever been to Cheshire before? What’s your favourite place?
