Once you have exhausted our suggested short break activities (click on button right) there is still plenty to do without having to travel far. These are our favourites:
Grosvenor museum: the museum just a short walk away covers local history dating back to Roman times.
Chester castle: visit this historic English Heritage site built in 1070 by William the Conqueror.
Cheshire Military Museum: covering local military history from the 17th century.
Grosvenor park: if the weather is nice this is a lovely park in which to spend a few hours wandering, relaxing an having a brew at the café.
Shopping: whether this is relaxation is debateable but the apartment is on the key shopping road, Grosvenor shopping centre is opposite the apartment, and boutique/independent shopping is a short stroll away.
Chester in Lego: pop in to see a fun recreation of Chester’s historic buildings in Lego. It is located near the indoor market, approximately 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
Alpaca walking: located a few miles out of Chester (15 minutes by bus) Rack and Ruin Alpacas offers a fun experience walking and feeding these cute animals. The pub/restaurant where it is based is also excellent.
Chester Zoo: this is an excellent zoo and you can easily spend the whole day here wandering around looking at the animals. It isn’t far – about 15 minutes away by bus (30 minutes door to door).
