Myself and my partner went to Chester zoo as I had heard great things about it. Travelling from Bristol we were not disappointed!! Happy animals in fantastic enclosures. Enclosures were really close to home to the animals habitats. Very large zoo and you will need all day if you want to thoroughly enjoy all of the animals. We did however get lost a few times feeling like we were walking around in circles and could not navigate ourselves to certain destinations easily.

Whilst in Chester for the day we decided to take a look around this museum and had a great time. There are lots of Roman artefacts and information relating to their history. There are also other displays including a walk through mock up of an old Victorian house, local silver and local wildlife that has been very well preserved and presented. It appeared to be child-friendly with colouring sheets, play areas and information trails to get involved with - ideal on a wet day or if the kids.

A fascinating and poignant museum. Excellent staff and very reasonable entry fee (£4 for an adult). It begins with a look at the history of the terms and ranks of the British Army, and includes an enormous collection of military medals. After this, the museum moves though history starting with the 17th century and ending up in the modern day. There were some fantastic models and displays in this museum, as well as good information on various historical conflicts etc. highly recommended.
