Chester

Chester

Chester’s rich history is evident as you explore the city
Founded as a fort by the Romans in AD 76 due to its advantageous position at the highest bridging point on the river Dee, the county town of Cheshire is found in the Northwest of England.

Forming almost a complete circuit, Chester's grade I listed walls originate from 100 AD - the best-preserved in England and it's home to Britain’s largest Roman amphitheatre, the oldest sporting venue in continual use (The Roodee Racecourse), a 1000-year-old cathedral with Europe’s finest example of medieval carvings, plus The Rows: 700-year-old medieval two-tiered timber-framed galleries which line the main streets of the city.

The remarkable Rows
Your eyes will catch these striking black-and-white buildings – which are now home to an exciting mix of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, attractions, and experiences. The unique structures have been the place to eat, drink, and trade through much of Chester’s history.

Chester Zoo
As well as its racecourse, cathedral, and black-and-white buildings - Chester is also known for its zoo. 20,000 animals are resident in what is the most visited zoo in the UK - and the most visited UK attraction outside of London.

Liverpool

Liverpool

It's one of the UK’s most popular city breaks – and it’s clear why

Located right where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea in the North West of England, it’s bursting with diverse and fascinating history, attractions – and lots and lots of shopping.

The Waterfront is definitely the place to be

The best view of the city's iconic skyline has to be from one of Mersey Ferry’s 50-minute River Explorer Cruises – board it from The Liverpool Waterfront. Here, you’ll also find the beautifully restored Royal Albert Dock, which played a key role in the famously friendly city’s maritime history. Have you ever noticed that the city’s name is below The Titanic on the mythical ship’s stern? Find out more at the free-to-enter Waterfront Maritime Museum.

Liverpool Dock has restaurants, bars, independent stores, museums and art galleries including Tate Liverpool and the Liverpool Museum, as well as The Beatle’s Story, an immersive exhibition which takes you down the Long and Winding Road of The Beatles.

Liverpool is the perfect place to learn about the Fab Four

..It’s their hometown after all. Take a selfie with a larger-than-life version of them on the Pier Head, or visit The Cavern Club on Mathew Street - the live music venue where The Beatles forged their musical identity and became the club’s signature act following their first performance there on 9th February 1961.

Don’t miss - Right in the heart of the city is Liverpool ONE, the one place you can find all of your high street favourites and designers, plus food, drink and entertainment. If you’re after something unique for dinner – head to Liverpool Cathedral’s bistro for a hearty bowl of traditional Scouse. The local comfort food is served with homemade bread and pickled cabbage.

Bowness-on-Windermere

Bowness-on-Windermere
Right on the shore of Windermere
The tiny town of Bowness-on-Windermere - not to be confused with Windermere town, is right on the shore of the largest lake in the Lake District, and England: Windermere. It sprung up after the opening of the railway line from Oxenholme and Kendal to Windermere in 1847 – because it was the nearest accessible point to the lake.

Luxurious hotels on the lakeshore
Today, traditional stone cottages, lakefront pubs, B&Bs – and lots and lots of water sports can be found in Bowness. As you scan the surroundings from the middle of the lake (you can hire easy-to-drive boats from Bowness Bay Marina), you will see the ex-Victorian residences lining the lake shore. A lot of these have now been converted into luxurious hotels.

A great base for exploring The Lake District
Busy year-round, there are regular ferries departing from the tourist town and crossing the large lake. Only a short walk will take you to Orrest Head, the first ‘summit’ Alfred Wainwright visited in his book ‘Lakeland’. Also found in Bowness - see the famous characters from Beatrix Potter’s famous books come to life at The World of Beatrix Potter, a must-see attraction for the whole family.

The Lake District

The Lake District

A unique tapestry of mountains, lakes & tarns
The Lake District is England's largest National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site AND home to the highest mountain (Scafell Pike), longest lake (Windermere) and deepest lake in the country (Wastwater). The national park’s unique landscape is the product of geographical processes over the last 500 million years.

You might have noticed that it rains a lot here. This, combined with extra deep glacial valleys and volcanic rock that doesn’t allow the water to seep away, is the reason there are so many lakes and tarns.

An unrivalled list of things to see & do
Dotted around this peaceful - and photogenic part of the world are many historic towns and villages, vast farmland, ancient dry-stone walls, and so much more. If you’re heading here for an adventure or to get back to nature - you can walk, hike, hire a boat, camp.. the list is unrivalled.

If you like to eat and drink, there are many cosy pubs to treat yourself to a locally distilled beer (or something stronger), and if you want to stock up on local delicacies or gifts for loved ones, there are countless quaint little shops.

Don’t miss - If you haven’t already, try Kendal Mint Cake, a locally made energy-boosting snack enjoyed by hikers worldwide!
