The University of Chester's Queen's Park Campus, located next to the River Dee, includes plenty of academic teaching spaces, two eateries and a dedicated business library, meaning it has everything you would want from a Business School. There are also plenty of things that make the campus unique and here are just some of them:

  1. Churchill House was built in 1937 as the Western command headquarters for World War Two. Leaders such as Churchill, French General De Gaulle and US supreme commander Eisenhower reputedly met in this building for top secret meetings.
  2. There was also a secret network of underground rooms underneath Churchill House which were related to the war effort. These are sealed off now but it would be interesting to know what’s down there.
  3. Both Churchill House and the newer Bridge House building used to be the regional headquarters for Lloyds Bank until 2009.
  4. There is a boardroom in Churchill House that must have one of the largest tables in the UK; used for meetings and presentations when Lloyds Bank occupied the buildings. When they vacated the buildings, they left the boardroom pretty much as it was.
  5. There are bookable pods in both buildings for students to work on group projects together.
  6. The Chester Business School was shortlisted as one of the best in the country.

The campus is a beautiful and historic campus, see for yourself!

If you would like to visit, then there are upcoming Experience Days or Open Days you can book on to, a great chance to see the facilities, have a taster session, meet students and chat to staff.
