Find cottages in ChesterVisit Chester

The story of historic Chester goes back centuries; this attractive city has plenty of ancient and modern attractions for visitors to enjoy.

From Romans and Saxons to Normans, Tudors and Victorians, Chester's rich history is displayed in its architecture and buildings and walking the ancient walls is an excellent way to get unsurpassed views of the city. Get face to face with the past at the Dewa Roman Experience, where you are promised the sights, sounds, and even the smells of times past. Step forward a few centuries to the magnificent Cathedral or the mediaeval Castle, nowadays with the added attraction of a Military Museum.

Forward again to Tudor times and the Chester Rows in Bridge Street, some of the country's finest examples of 'black and white' architecture, though you may spot one or two Victorian restorations hidden among the authentic originals.

The city's Racecourse is one of the most important attractions in the country, as of course is Chester Zoo, where you can comfortably fill a whole day; don't miss the Bat House, the biggest of its kind in the world.

Whether your pleasure is the past or present, Chester has it all so why not start searching for Chester holiday cottages today.
