The Heart of England/Peak District
Cheshire is an area packed with charms and attractions for visitors. The area boasts Chester, a Roman city set on the borders of Wales; the silk town of Macclesfield located in the Peak District foothills; historic Nantwich in the county's rolling dairy country - and Daresbury, birthplace of Alice in Wonderland creator Lewis Carroll.
As if that weren't enough there's dynamic Ellesmere Port, where waterway history comes to life; ancient Sandbach with its Saxon Crosses, the modern retail centre of Warrington - and at the heart of it all, Northwich, a town literally built on salt.
Yet Cheshire is more than the sum of these parts. It is one great, accessible destination - rich in gardens and heritage, exciting family attractions and fascinating museums, intriguing craft centres and tempting designer shopping.
