Cheshire is one of England's most attractive and interesting counties. It has buildings and traditions that can be traced back to the Domesday Book and earlier, and its rich and varied landscapes attract crowds of visitors throughout the year. Home to Cheshire cheese and a range of fresh dairy products and crops, farmer's markets proliferate here and the menus of every hotel, restaurant and guesthouse bulge with seasonal produce. Stay at a Cheshire hotel or guesthouse in or around Chester, the county city, and enjoy great attractions such as the castle, city walls and Chester Town Hall.
Chester Town Hall was built in the architectural style known as Gothic Revival. It was all the rage at the time, and the building was opened in suitably pompous style by the Prince of Wales, who was at the time Earl of Chester but who went on to become King Edward VII. Chester has always been proud of its royal connections and underwent a famous siege by Cromwell's forces during the English Civil War. Formerly a seat of county governance, complete with court rooms and cells, the building is now a city icon visited by tourists throughout the year for its opulence and sheer charm. It's still a working building, a venue for exhibitions, weddings and other events, but Chester City Council now convenes in a new building opposite the castle.
Chester Town Hall is also full of clues in stone to some of the history of the city. There's a war memorial for instance to soldiers who died during World War I, and up the walls of the main staircase you can see the ancient shields and plaques representing local noble families. In the porch of the building there's a sculpture depicting Roman soldiers building the original city walls. There's a lot going on in this building, physically and symbolically, and it's well worth a visit if you're staying in a Cheshire hotel, guesthouse or B&B in the neighbourhood. There are plenty of good restaurants, pubs and shops in the immediate vicinity.
