Pocket Guide: Chester Chester Castle Hotels

Cheshire is one of those quintessentially English counties, almost redolent of a lost world with its lush pastures, grazing dairy herds and attractive little villages. This timeless atmosphere derives in part from its long history; with many villages and hamlets dating to before the Conquest, and many of the monuments testify to its colourful past. There are good accommodations across the area, with all sorts of Cheshire hotels and guesthouses to choose from. While you're here, explore some of the fine historic monuments such as Chester Castle and make a day of it.

Cheshire Hotels for Historic Chester Castle

Chester Castle was originally built by the Normans in 1069 as a timber structure of the motte and bailey variety. They erected these right across the country as soon as they arrived to consolidate their hold and keep the unruly natives in check! It clearly worked here, as Henry III later gave the castle towers and stone walls and thereby made it a permanent. It kept its distinctively medieval appearance until the late-18th Century, when its walls and battlements were replaced by a rather severe group of buildings. It's still well worth an outing from your Cheshire hotel to see the home of the Cheshire Regiment, and the Regimental Museum is housed here.

A Day at Chester Castle from Cheshire Hotels

Chester Castle has a fine situation overlooking the River Dee, which fortunately, 18th-century developers were unable to interfere with! With Chester city centre close by it makes a good destination for a day out with the family from your Cheshire hotel. The neoclassical buildings which replaced most of the medieval castle were much in vogue at the time, and they now house the Crown Courts as well as the military museum. The main part of the old castle to have survived is the Agricola Tower, which is a Grade I listed building. The old chapel is still consecrated and is used today by the regiment. The 13th-century frescoes on its ceiling are worth seeing; they were only brought back to light during the 1990s when restoration work was being carried out.
