Lake District and North Wales

Back to 'In and Around Chester'

Chester makes an excellent stopping-off point for holidays in the Lakes and Wales. The magnificent landscapes of both these regions are popular with people from all over the UK – so if you’re travelling from the south or north of the country, why not take a break in Chester on your way? Whether you’re going walking, climbing or just sight-seeing, you’ll enjoy your break much more.

The Lake District welcomes millions of visitors from all over the world every year - from the well-known haunts of Ambleside and Windermere to the quieter corners such as Wastwater Head, there is something for everyone.

Wales - with castles and coastlines, wonderful food and drink, and some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet, Wales has it all. And although you can expect some rainy days in Wales, the weather is usually milder than in the rest of the UK.
