Located in England's North West, the rural county of Cheshire is home to around 1 million people, and is well known for its agricultural fields and scenic wetlands. The county town of Chester is one of the most popular places in Cheshire, and other major towns include the railway town of Crewe, the historical marketplace of Nantwich and the riverside area of Macclestown.
There are a lot of fun things to do in Cheshire; the Cheshire Show is an annual celebration of the fertile heritage of this area and attracts people from all across the country to join in the festivities. If you’re looking for a cultural excursion, take a step into the past and explore the Tudor settlements at Little Moreton Hall or learn about the technological advances that happened during the Industrial Revolution at Quarry Banks. The historical journey continues in Chester, with amazing sites like the Chester Roman Amphitheatre and Roman Gardens, or the brilliant Chester Zoo.
For those who prefer to go on a shopping spree, the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet is open, come rain or shine. This is the largest outlet centre in the UK, with over 145 shops and tons of fantastic restaurants. To satisfy a sweet tooth you can venture out to the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm for a dairy delight, and try over 40 different ice cream flavours after meeting the animals that call the farm their home.
