Cheshire is a stunningly beautiful county that attracts visitors at all seasons of the year. One of its most interesting cities is the county town, Chester, which was established by the Romans over two millennia ago and still has parts of their original stones embedded in its amazingly intact walls. The city walls, along with the cathedral, castle and Eastgate Clock, are amongst Chester's biggest tourist attractions. The city is also full of old Tudor houses, striking with their black and white façades, and is home to many first-class restaurants. Take a walk in Grosvenor Park while you're staying at a Cheshire hotel in the area. It's a beautiful green space at the heart of an already attractive city.
Cheshire Hotels for Grosvenor Park in Chester
Grosvenor Park covers 20 acres of lovely green land overlooking the River Dee and is open to the public all year round at no charge. It's a hugely popular park with both visitors and residents, and has a layout which was typical of parks in the UK designed during the Victorian period. The fashion at that time was for formal avenues of stately trees, interspersed with statues on pedestals and great, sweeping lawns the size of football pitches, immaculately trimmed and tended. Fortunately, similar tastes still prevail, and visitors to the park today also delight in the ornamental shrub beds which have become rather well known and very popular with visitors, especially in the summer. Visit Grosvenor Park from your Cheshire hotel and enjoy a delightful afternoon's stroll in the most glorious surroundings.
