#ExploringCheshire

I love visiting cities and sights around my region! On my birthday earlier this week, we visited Chatsworth which is an incredibly impressive and beautiful English country home with gorgeous gardens to explore. There are so many wonderful cities around the UK that you should visit such as York, London and Chester. The latter is what I'll be writing about today as it's not only a car journey away from me but there are so many sights to visit in and around Chester. This post is inspired by the #ExploringCheshire campaign from https://www.laurushomes.co.uk.

Chester Cathedral
I've visited Chester Cathedral at least three times now and it is just as impressive each time! I'm not religious at all but I do love visiting churches as to me they are so peaceful as well as amazing feats of architecture and engineering. Chester Cathedral is so beautiful and I'd definitely recommend visiting.

Chester Zoo + Cheshire Oaks
During primary school one of the places we used to visit on school trips was Chester Zoo and I absolutely loved it! There's so much to see and do at Chester Zoo, especially for children. If you want something for children and adults then you could visit Cheshire Oaks after your trip to the zoo as it's only a 15 minute drive from Chester Zoo!

Lyme Park
I love visiting country houses and Lyme Park is one of my favourites, along with Dunham Massey and Chatsworth. Lyme Park is similar to Dunham Massey in that there's a country home, parklands and deer, however the deer at Lyme Park are fairly elusive and the deer park is off limits to visitors. The house is still very impressive, there is a lot of woodland and parkland to explore and as with Dunham Massey, if you're a National Trust member (as I am) then you get in for free.

Dunham Massey
One of my all time favourite places to visit within Cheshire has to be Dunham Massey which is a stunning Georgian House that you can explore as well as a deer park. The deer park is in the grounds so you don't have to walk very far at all to see the wild deer that roam the grounds. You can get very, very close to the deer and there are no barriers at all. I wouldn't recommend taking your dogs to Dunham Massey as they can scare the deer (a few very irresponsible people had their dogs at the park) but there is so much to see at Dunham Massey for all the family.

Those are just a few of my favourite places within Cheshire to visit but I'd also like to visit Tatton Park and Little Moreton Hall, both are owned by the National Trust. Cheshire is such a beautiful region to live in and visit, there are so many attractions for everyone and thankfully for me, it isn't very far from Manchester!

Have you visited any of these places? Have you visited Cheshire?
