Chester Longer breaks

Here is a selection of day trips from Chester that are easily accessed if staying out our apartment.


An easy 45 minute train journey to the centre of Liverpool. There is lots to do within this vibrant city:

  • Liverpool Cathedral
  • Anfield Football Stadium
  • Everything Beatles: visit the Beatles museum, the Cavern club and take the ferry across the Mersey
  • Albert Docks
  • More Shopping
  • Merseyside Maritime Museum
  • Shows at the Arena
  • Historic architecture
  • The Williamson Tunnel


A 35 minute train journey will take to to Birkenhead where you can visit the U-boat Story.

Conwy and Llandudno (North Wales)

Just under 1.5 hours by train or a 50 minute drive, you can easily fill a day around here with attractions including:


Chester Golf Club and Upton Golf Clubs are both nearby if you want to spend the day on the Green.


There is some amazing countryside around Chester… here are some suggestions:

  • North Wales: there is plenty of walking nearby ranging from proper mountains to more gentle valleys and woodlands;
  • Sandstone trail: this is a 55-kilometre long-distance walkers’ path, following sandstone ridges running north to south from Frodsham to Whitchurch just over the Shropshire border. We would suggest for a leisurely day out to do the Frodsham (17-20 minute direct train ride) to Delamere (17 minute direct train ride) stretch (about 11 Km) and spend a bit of time in Delamere Forest. If you want to walk further there are lovely round trips from Frodsham incoproating part of the Trail (e.g. this 13 mile walk).
