Cheshire has some of the most attractive countryside in the whole of the United Kingdom, from a pleasant coastline in the west to its borders with the North Welsh Hills to the south and the Peak District to the east. This all makes for a great variety of landscapes and sports and outdoor pursuits are very popular here. From your Cheshire hotel or guesthouse you can have a day at the races in Chester, play golf at some of the best clubs in the region and enjoy walking and rambling in the countryside. If you're close by and are at all interested in football, a visit to the home stadium of Chester FC in Chester is recommended.
Cheshire Hotels for a Visit to Deva Stadium
As is often the case in the Chester area, the name of the stadium derives from an ancient Roman name, in this case for the local fort which they built here, Deva Victrix. This old military camp became, in the course of the centuries, the city of Chester as wall and towers were added and peoples settled and built their lives and livelihoods here. The Deva Stadium is notable for straddling the border between England and Wales, so when you visit from your Cheshire hotel you can explore some of the breathtakingly beautiful North Wales Hills region as well as watching some football. The shops, restaurants and attractions of Chester will be right on your doorstep too, so you can make a real day of it.
A Day at Deva Stadium from Cheshire Hotels
Deva Stadium has a capacity of 5,300 since the away end of the ground was made into seats-only; it used to be over 6,000. The pitch is in Flintshire, in Wales, whilst the main office and the gate are in Cheshire, in England, which is an interesting situation! Chester FC, which replaced Chester City FC in 2010, won its first match against Aberystwyth Town in July of that year with a final score of 3-0. Come along to Deva Stadium from your Cheshire hotel to see some real Cheshire sporting history, on the ground and in the souvenir shop.
