Cheshire is a county in the northwestern part of England; its capital is the city of Chester. Cheshire tourism is favored by the presence in Chester of a number of architecturally significant buildings; the city itself is one of the most well-preserved examples of walled cities in the entire United Kingdom. St. Peter’s Church, the Church of St. Mary-on-the-hill, St. John the Baptist’s Church, and the Eastgate Clock are all Cheshire attractions in the capital. Some of the best shopping in Cheshire is found in Chester, thanks to the presence of “rows”, or two-leveled structures that contain a number of shops, which actually date to medieval times.
Many Cheshire sights are found outside the capital city and are actually quite ancient, some dating as far back as the Iron Age. While visiting Cheshire, for example, you should check out the Beeston Castle, which was built in the 13th century over a pre-existing fortress that dated to about 400 BC. There are a number of other sights dealing with ancient Cheshire culture as well. Many tourists are interested in outdoor things to do in Cheshire; those tourists should visit Delamere Forest, which contains a number of foot paths and bicycle paths.
