Why Cheshire?

Chester and Cheshire are famous for many things and attracts visitors from around the world for that very reason. With beautiful scenery, magnificent gardens and plenty for attractions for all the family there's something for everyone!

Heritage

Cheshire's world-famous Textile Triangle is made up by a range of attractions, all of which give visitors a brilliant and comprehensive guide to the history of Cheshire's textile industry, including the Macclesfield Silk Museum.

A more relaxed attraction is to see the Orient Express at one of the stations in Cheshire that it serves and take a luxurious trip back in time for the day.

Chester and Cheshire boast plenty of museums that display exhibitions on a variety of subjects. You can learn about Chester's Roman past or examine the collection of vintage machinery at the Anson Engine Museum.

Or for those looking for a bit more of an active attraction why not take a walking tour around Knutsford and discover Cranford and the places that make the town so interesting.

Cycling

Cheshire has an abundance of cycle routes that offer one of the best ways to see the region. The 176-mile Cheshire Cycleway takes you round the entire county and passes many of the region's major attractions on the way.

If you're looking for something a little less strenuous, take a trip to Northwich for Biking the Backroads, a cycle route that is away from busy roads through the village of Antrobus. Or for those real cycle enthusiasts, Delamere Forest offers a quiet and stunning haven for cyclists. There are several different trails available, from ones for the family to ones for the more experienced cyclists.

Horse Riding

With many fields and rural location, Cheshire has some fantastic bridleways for horse riders. Recommended bridleways include Whitegate Way from Winsford to Cuddington near Delamere Forest and the Salt Line and Merelake Way from Hassall Green to Alsager. These routes are away from the roads and traffic free. If you're more a spectator than horse rider, Chester Racecourse provides visitors with the best opportunity to attend a large and exciting race meeting. Race events take place from May to September every year.

Walking

One of the best ways to explore Cheshire's stunning countryside is by walking. Whether you want to explore the city of Chester and its colorful history or hike along a trail through the Cheshire countryside, there are options aplenty for the walking enthusiast.

In the rural fields of Cheshire, the Trans Pennine Trail links the North and Irish Seas and passes through several towns, villages, and cities.

Waterways

During the Industrial Revolution, a large canal network was built in Chester and Cheshire. The waterways offer a great place to explore for anglers, walkers and many more.

You can hire a barge and go through the Cheshire canal system yourself if you fancy it. The Anglo-Welsh Waterways Holidays and Heritage Narrowboats provide boats for hire.

However, if you prefer to explore the canals on foot, Middlewich Waterside Trail allows you to follow the course of the canal for 3.4 miles.
