Best Things To Do & Days Out In Cheshire

Stuck for inspiration for cool things to do in Cheshire with the kids? We’ve got you covered! 

 

From playing hide and seek in the glorious 1400-acre gardens and greenlands of Lyme Park to digging into the wonderful world of frozen delights at The Ice Cream Farm (they’ve got over 50 flavours of ice cream!), you’re in for a family days out galore. 

Love animals? Chester Zoo with its 15,000+ animals is worth the trip whether you live in Cheshire or not. In fact, it’s one of the top 10 zoos in the UK. Make sure you hop on the monorail and take a lazy river boat trip while you're there. 

Another family-favorite Cheshire attraction is Tatton Park - it’s actually 4 attractions in one: parklands, gardens, 18th century mansion and a working farm. Not to mention, they host over 100 events throughout the year. How awesome does it sound? 

If your family is in the mood for a bit of sightseeing, Chester Cathedral is the one Cheshire landmark you simply must visit. It’s stunning! 

Here’s something else that might come in handy when you’re planning what to do in Cheshire when - the UK school holiday dates. Time to explore!
