Welcome to Chester

The historic city of Chester offers plenty of experiences all year round to help you enjoy your stay just that little bit more.

Chester is most famous for it's magnificent race course, the popular Chester Zoo and the beautiful Chester Cathedral and with a huge variety of spas and shopping there is something special for everyone to enjoy.

Chester sparkles with a magical heritage all year round and is the perfect place for revitalising breaks at any time. 

Summer is packed with exciting festivals including the historic Midsummer Watch Parade and the Summer Music Festival. Look out this year for 'CHESTIVAL'

Later in the year, as the nights draw in, why not experience the more mysterious side to the city centre and take a night-time journey around the eerie haunts of Chester's past on our Ghosthunter Trail

Christmas in Chester is always a must, so many exciting shops and late night Thursdays plus the Midwinter Watch Parade, Lantern parades and Christmas lights in the city centre.
