Whatever the reason you find yourself staying near Chester, the city and surrounding county has an abundance of things to do and a mixture of activities that will appeal to all.

Below are just five of the best things to do in near Days Inn Chester.

1. Chester city centre

Just a thirteen-minute drive and you’re in the city centre of Chester. Renowned for the remnants of its 2000-year-old history, Chester boasts a wealth of attractions. From the striking Cathedral to their Medieval city wall, you can historically and architecturally immerse yourself in a culturally significant place.

There are a variety of ways to see all that the city has to offer; choose to hop on a sightseeing bus or do it differently with a ChesterBoat cruise along the river Dee.

2. Chester Races

Does a day at the races take your fancy? England’s oldest active racecourse has something for every budget and every type of outing.

A great excuse to put on your best clothes, sip a flute of fizz, and have a flutter with the charismatic traditional bookies.

3. Chester Zoo and Blue Planet Aquarium

With both attractions located on opposite sides of the M56, it’s not much of a stretch to visit the famous Chester Zoo and Blue Planet Aquarium on the same day!

These attractions are recognised nationwide for their wonderfully diverse exhibits of animals from all over the world.

If there’s a thrill seeker among you, you can even go diving with sharks at the Blue Planet Aquarium!

4. Speke Hall

Although there are a number of National Trust properties in the local area, one of particular grandeur and just a half-hour drive away is Speke Hall, Garden and Estate, located on the opposite side of the Mersey.

Serving as a fine and rare example of Tudor architecture, its 19th century restorations remind visitors of the importance of local heritage.

An outdoor play area on a warm day will keep the kids occupied whilst you enjoy a hot drink and scone in the Stable Tea Room. It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon with the family!

5. Liverpool city centre

If you’re willing to travel a tiny bit further, consider the city of Liverpool for a fun-packed day trip. With an array of museums covering all things from world history to Beatlemania, Liverpool has climbed to one of the top-rated places to visit in the UK.

Must visits include the Albert Dock - which is home to a variety of museums, including The Beatles Story - and for eateries, try Bold Street or the bustling bohemian Baltic Triangle.

You can also take advantage of the convenient sight-seeing bus tours, including a Beatles Magical Mystery themed trip around some of the most renowned sights connected to the Fab Four.
