Cheshire is probably most famous now as the des res for the Premierships best paid footballers but dont let their shocking taste in mock Tudor house put you off this beautiful northern region. Cheshire is a charming, bucolic slice of old rural England filled with green pastures, waterways, historic houses, museums and historic sites dating back to the pre-Roman era.

Cheshire is a ceremonial county and a former principality of North West England. Its county town is Chester and largest town is Warrington. The county is over 2300 square kilometers in size and is bordered by Flintshire and Wrexham to the west, Staffordshire and Shropshire to the south, Derbyshire to the east and Greater Manchester and Merseyside to the north. Whilst Cheshire has a number of large towns and a population of more than a million people it remains a rural county with numerous small villages made up of black and white magpie houses in idyllic gardens and a thriving farming community. Traditionally it was known as an area that produced woven silk, chemicals, salt and of course, the famous crumbly Cheshire Cheese.

The county town of Chester is one of the finest in Britain, a historic walled city located on the banks of the River Dee, with the famous amphitheatre and the Rows, (amazing old black and white timbered galleried buildings), the Norman Chester Cathedral, and Chester Zoo as well as Britains oldest racecourse, Chester Racecourse. Other towns and villages worth seeing include Ellesmere Port, an industrial town built on Manchester Ship Canals and featuring the Boat Musuem, Warrington an ancient town with beautiful buildings and canals, enchanting villages such as Lymm and Grappenhall and the Vale Royal region which features a number of villages set in classic English countryside. The countryside itself offers thousands of miles of biking and hiking including trails through the conifers of Delamere Forest and the sandstone ridge walks that look out over the Welsh Hills and Dee Valley. An exceptionally beautiful English county.
