Liverpool - It's one of the UK's most popular city breaks, and it's clear why. Located right where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea in the North West of England, it's bursting with diverse and fascinating history, attractions - and lots and lots of shopping.
Chester's rich history is evident as you explore the city
Founded as a fort by the Romans in AD 76 due to its advantageous position at the highest bridging point on the river Dee, the county town of Cheshire is found in the Northwest of England.
Forming almost a complete circuit, Chester's grade I listed walls originate from 100 AD - the best-preserved in England and it's home to Britain's largest Roman amphitheatre, the oldest sporting venue in continual use (The Roodee Racecourse), a 1000-year-old cathedral with Europe's finest example of medieval carvings, plus The Rows: 700-year-old medieval two-tiered timber-framed galleries which line the main streets of the city.
The remarkable Rows
Your eyes will catch these striking black-and-white buildings - which are now home to an exciting mix of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, attractions, and experiences. The unique structures have been the place to eat, drink, and trade through much of Chester's history.
As well as its racecourse, cathedral, and black-and-white buildings - Chester is also known for its zoo. 20,000 animals are resident in what is the most visited zoo in the UK - and the most visited UK attraction outside of London.

The Waterfront is definitely the place to be
The best view of the city's iconic skyline has to be from one of Mersey Ferry's 50-minute River Explorer Cruises - board it from The Liverpool Waterfront. Here, you'll also find the beautifully restored Royal Albert Dock, which played a key role in the famously friendly city's maritime history. Have you ever noticed that the city's name is below The Titanic on the mythical ship's stern? Find out more at the free-to-enter waterfront Maritime Museum.
Liverpool Dock has restaurants, bars, independent stores, museums and art galleries including Tate Liverpool and the Liverpool Museum, as well as The Beatle's Story, an immersive exhibition which takes you down the Long and Winding Road of the Beatles.
Liverpool is the perfect place to learn about the Fab Four
..It's their hometown after all. Take a selfie with a larger-than-life version of them on the Pier Head, or visit The Cavern Club on Mathew Street - the live music venue where The Beatles forged their musical identity and became the club's signature act following their first performance there on 9th February 1961.
Don't miss - Right in the heart of the city is Liverpool ONE, the one place you can find all of your high street favourites and designers, plus food, drink and entertainment. If you're after something unique for dinner - head to Liverpool Cathedral's bistro for a hearty bowl of traditional Scouse. The local comfort food is served with homemade bread and pickled cabbage.
