If you’d like to take a break from your studies and are looking for ways to have fun in Cheshire, I can help you with that! Here are some things you can do to make the most of your leisure time.

1. Be a Tourist for the Day

The Chester City Sightseeing Bus Tours are a popular favourite for tourists. But why not get a combined bus and river ticket instead, so you can also cruise along the River Dee and enjoy the beautiful, serene sights of the city. You can buy a combined bus and river ticket from the driver of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus to access this deal. However, if you are into more of the spooky stuff, book a Chester Ghost Tour and experience an eerie night in a city that is steeped in 2000 years of history and has had many ghost sightings.

2. Have Fun with Animals

For the animal lovers amongst you, there are plenty of options for you too! Chester Zoo is home to over 35,000 animals from more than 500 different species. It also has zoological gardens for you to explore. If you are a lover of birds, you’ll love Cheshire Falconry. It has an amazing range of interesting experiences for bird lovers. If you’d like an aquatic adventure, head to Blue Planet Aquarium; you’ll come face-to-face with sharks, octopus, stingrays and more.

3. For the More Sophisticated Crew

Cheshire offers a wide range of museums and art galleries for you to explore. There’s the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port, Port Sunlight Museum on the Wirral,  Macclesfield Silk Museum and the Anson Engine Museum in Poynton. They all hold a great degree of history and culture and are great places for you to explore if you want to get a good feel for Cheshire’s heritage. Make sure you check the opening times and admission process on their websites before visiting.

4. Calling all Dessert Lovers

After taking part in these exciting activities, indulge yourself in some sweet treats. Cheshire Ice Cream Farm is the world’s largest ice cream parlour. It sells over 50 delicious flavours of ice cream and there are fun activities to take part in, even for the grown-ups. Head to Strawberry Falls and try your hand at crazy golf whilst you’re there. They have a drive-in which is open daily from 11am-6pm. If you prefer a cosier environment to enjoy your dessert, Planet Doughnut is just the right place for you. They serve a large variety of mouth-watering doughnut flavours daily, and you can also try out their range of coffees, ice teas and milkshakes. As if that’s not enough, they also have a signature range of doggy doughnuts for canines. You can visit Planet Doughnut on Frodsham Street in Chester or, if you live in the area, you can order online for next day delivery.
