Discover a city with a deep heritage to explore

From ancient architecture to intriguing museums, there are plenty of historic sights to capture your imagination around Chester.

You can walk the Roman city walls that were built nearly 2,000 years ago, admire a mix of Norman and Gothic designs at the huge Chester Cathedral, or visit the largest Roman amphitheatre ever uncovered in Britain.

You'll find archaeological finds and Victorian period rooms at the Grosvenor Museum, local regimental history stretching as far back as the 17th century at the Cheshire Military Museum, and fully immersive exhibits at the family-friendly Dewa Roman Experience.

Retire to a city full of culture and shopping

Whether you're looking for exciting days out or the best new brands, there's lots to keep you busy around Chester.

You can see nearly 10,000 animals at the hugely popular Chester Zoo, catch live drama at the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, or watch high-profile races at the Chester Racecourse, the oldest racecourse in England that's still in use today.

When you feel like treating yourself, you can climb below street level to the unique undercrofts of the Chester Rows, discover specialist stores and unique boutiques in the Independent Quarter, or you can choose from nearly 150 different shops at Cheshire Oaks, the UK's largest outlet centre.

Testimonial image

As if moving into my beautiful new apartment wasn’t enough, everything that led up to the move was handled by McCarthy & Stone. I couldn’t believe how easy it all turned out to be; I was left with just two boxes to unpack which suited me and Meira just fine.

Get out and about in an area packed with events, festivals and sports

With so many spectacular local events and festivals all throughout the year, it's no wonder that so many people are choosing a retirement property in Chester.

You can see four days of equestrian showmanship at the Bolesworth International, choose from a huge range of cuisines at the Food, Drink and Lifestyle Festival, or watch your favourite films in the atmospheric outdoors of the Roman Gardens at the Moonlight Flicks events.

If you're keen to keep up an active retirement, you'll find kayaking and canoeing along the River Dee, 34 miles of scenic walking along the massively popular Sandstone Trail, and more than 70 golf courses and 60 tennis clubs dotted around the surrounding county of Cheshire.
