The famous zoo is reason enough to visit the city, but the area has lots more to offer, including excellent shopping, fascinating history, stunning Tudor-style architecture and lively nightlife. To learn about the history of the city, take a walk along the city walls starting at the Eastgate Clock, visit the Cathedral or even the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain. For shopping, the city itself has everything you need, but for some thrilling designer discounts, head to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet just north of the city.
Our Chester hotel is perfectly located – just a 15-minute drive away from the centre of Chester and with the scenic beauty of North Wales and the bustling city of Liverpool both right on your doorstep. Plus, we’ve got everything you need at our hotel, including a Starbucks, Pub & Grill and state of the Village Health & Wellness Club all in one location. Your ideal murder mystery break destination.
