No matter what time of year you visit, there is always something going on in Chester, including the many festivals, parades and Town Crier proclamations throughout the summer, to the Winter Watch Parades, Winter Wonderland and Christmas Market in the colder months. Your Guide will keep you informed of where to be and when, so you can be sure to make the most of your visit.

Afterwards you can relax in one of the many old hostelries, cafes or restaurants and plan your next day of delights, whether that might be a visit to Chester’s award-winning Zoo (as seen on TV in Our Zoo) or to venture deep in to the surrounding countryside of Cheshire, Merseyside or North Wales.
