Cheshire Military Museum

Cheshire Military Museum, Chester

This museum is housed in the part of the Chester Castle which served as accommodation for soldiers in the 19th century. It pays special attention to the history of Cheshire regiments, and works hard to integrate gender and the stories of women who served into it's exhibitions, which dare I say it is somewhat unusual for a military museum!

Millennium Festival Trail

Millennium Festival Trail

The Chester Millennium Festival Trail is a route through the city centre that passes 40 of the most important buildings in terms of architectural development. It was laid down in 2000 and local people selected all the buildings. More than the obvious Roman architecture, the walk takes in a wide range of styles and demonstrate Chester’s important architectural heritage. Surprises along the way include the Odeon cinema, which is a great example of the art deco style. The tour is self guided with footpath markings.

Grosvenor Park

Grosvenor Park

Richard, Second Marquis of Westminster, gave these 16 acres of land to the City. Landscape designer Mr Edward Kemp, architect of Crystal Palace was paid to lie out the park and many of the original features still remain since opening in 1867. The typically Victorian park boasts a park lodge, a black and white timbered building with statues representing William the Conqueror and the Norman Earls of Chester. Bedding displays are planted twice yearly and the Lime trees lining the main avenues are kept in pyramidal form, fashionable in Victorian times.
