Explore a beautiful part of England that's rich with heritage

From the ancient salt-making industry that dates back to over 2,000 years ago, to the silk, cotton and cheese trade, there's a deep industrial history to discover all over the county.

You can follow the miles of canals that helped Cheshire throughout the Industrial Revolution, watch cargo boats being lifted 50 feet into the air at the Anderton Boat Lift, or take a tour of the renowned Lion Salt Works, a preserved salt-making site and museum, which recently underwent a £10 million restoration.

You'll also find plenty of historic sites and buildings all over the region, such as the irregular shapes of the moated, half-timbered manor house at Little Moreton Hall, or the massive walls and towers of the 13th-century stronghold at Beeston Castle.

Find a retirement home in a county full of shopping and exhibitions

Whether you're looking for fashion boutiques or home-grown produce, you'll find everything you need in Cheshire. There's a huge range of major stores at Cheshire Oaks, the UK's largest designer outlet, and all sorts of jewellery stores, antique shops and furniture stores in the market towns of Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Knutford.

If you'd rather have a browse of some locally-produced goods, there are dozens of farm shops and farmers' markets all over the county, where you'll see farm-fresh meat, luxury preserves, world-famous cheese and curious, hand-crafted goods.

You can find historic artefacts and natural history collections at the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery, as well as over a thousand paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries. Or you can see a wide range of collections at the Grosvenor Museum in Chester, including archaeological finds, hallmarked silver and ancient fossils.
