Continuing to focus on the summer of the ‘staycation’, we want to tell you why the historic city of Chester is perfect for a weekend break away with the family. Not only is this beautiful place one of England’s best-preserved walled cities, it is home to a number of exciting visitor attractions including the award winning Chester Zoo and the oldest racecourse in Britain, home to the famous Chester Races.
Chester is the ideal destination to get away from it all and with so much to do for all ages, you can stay a long weekend or a week and you’ll never be bored!
When looking for a holiday, many people desire fun, sun, relaxation and some top class entertainment. Although we can’t guarantee the sunshine, Chester can offer you all this and more.
At Days Inn Chester, we’ve put together some of the highlights to visiting our amazing city:
The ‘Roodee’ as it is otherwise known is Chester’s premier entertainment venue. Whether it’s the excitement of the race, the lively atmosphere, the fashion focus, or the history, a day at the races is fantastic experience!
The shopping in Chester is a highlight for anybody looking to indulge in some retail therapy. Alongside the charming Chester Rows, you’ll find top designer stores and independent boutiques as well as shopping malls and traditional markets. Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, just 10 minutes away from our hotel, is a firm favourite with guests. Here you’ll find a number of high quality brands but at discounted prices.
No visit to Chester would be complete without a visit to the UK’s number one zoo! Here children and adults alike will be in their element as they discover over 7000 animals and 400 different species, alongside 100 acres of award-winning gardens.
These medieval walls give Chester its name ‘The Walled City’ and are the only complete Roman Wall circuit in the UK. Dating back to Roman times, the City Walls circle the entire city and it's completely free to walk. Recently, the Walls have undergone more than £3m worth of maintenance and repair.
The magnificent Chester Cathedral is a must see while you’re staying with us. It is one of the most complete medieval monastic complexes in the country and can be visited on a guided tour.
We also recommended spending some time in the Cheshire countryside. Visit one of the many acclaimed gardens or enjoy the great outdoors by walking, cycling or even horse riding.
