In Upton, just over a mile north of Chester city center, Chester Zoo is one of the UK's largest and most popular zoological parks.
Home to more than 11,000 animals representing some 400 different species, this 125-acre site also features prizewinning landscaped gardens and its very own monorail system.
Animal attractions include Chimpanzee Island, a penguin pool, and Europe's largest tropical house.
Another great wildlife-themed tourist attraction is Blue Planet Aquarium, home to more than 50 displays of fish and marine species.
The largest section, the stunning Caribbean Reef exhibit, houses more than 700 fish, including southern stingrays and moray eels, as well as Europe's largest collection of sharks (if your budget allows, book one of the attraction's popular shark dive experience).
Chester's roots date back to Roman times, and the Vikings, Danes, Saxons, Scots, and Normans also occupied the settlement at various times.While the splendid three-aisle pillared nave of the Gothic basilica is undoubtedly one of this elegant structure's most striking features, the west end is also notable for several features: the baptistery, another relic of the Norman church, contains a 6th-century Venetian font, and the Consistory Court, though less visually impressive, is nevertheless unique in England.The finest part of Chester Cathedral, its Early Decorated Choir, certainly deserves to be visited, even if it's all you see of this magnificent building.Add to this mix its attractive bridges, parks, and riverside walks, as well as the city's many musical festivals, excellent shopping, and one of the world's top zoos, and it's little wonder Chester ranks so highly on England's most popular places to visit.Built mostly of red sandstone, Chester's City Walls follow the even older Roman walls, except where they extend to the river to include the Castle.
