The county is a great representation of Old England and much of the architecture harks back to a previous age. Inside the county are numerous stately homes providing a grand and eloquent stature to the area and the Arley Hall and Garden’s, which has been present for over 550 years, serves as a slice of living Cheshire history. Indeed, it is a great glimpse into the past with peaceful and exemplary gardens and centuries old buildings. In fact, the county as a whole has a great ‘outdoorsy’ feel to it and for lovers of the countryside, there is no shortage of options for entertainment.
Falconry has a long history in Cheshire and visitors can join in on the hobby or simply watch the majestic birds in action. The Gauntlet Bird of Prey, Eagle and Vulture Park provides a wide variety of different birdlife on display and offers a great chance to see some lesser known and lesser spotted birds inside the county. The vast acres of countryside and unspoilt land also allow for great walking and cycling experiences and the renowned Trans Pennine Trail (which stretches from the east coast to the west coast of England) comes through Cheshire, and this is only the tip of the iceberg as the county provides numerous walking and cycling trails for everyone with varying levels of difficulty.
The Peak District also falls under Cheshire’s borders and there are over 100 square miles of fantastic landscapes, wildlife, country pubs and attractions as well as old English villages for visitors to enjoy. The county is not just about the countryside however and the city of Chester is a great attraction. Even though it is perhaps not the modern, glass and skyscraper laden metropolis of most 21st century cities, it still has all the trimmings such as high street stores, shopping centres and a lively nightlife combined with a traditional setting. It is this curious mix of modernity and traditionalism that draws people to its streets.
Cheshire is also home to a wide variety of local foods. Cheshire Cheese is the most famous with a national and international reputation, however, within its boundaries you can also find acclaimed locally brewed ales, smoked meat and dishes that represent the diversity of the county.
The region as a whole is a source of traditionalism and landscapes and views not often seen elsewhere in the country. Cheshire is a nature lover’s paradise and it combines this with a deep sense of history in addition to elements of modernity to create a really diverse county that can claim to cater to all tastes.
