Who doesn’t love a day trip? My new baby is due in January so we will be looking forward to plenty of fun days out with all of the kids. But what about holidays? I won’t be going far so I’ve been researching some things to do in the UK. Today, I’m sharing what I have discovered about Cheshire and some of the things that you can do.
Obviously one of the first things I checked out was the list of things that are available for families to do. Cheshire Zoo has over 11,000 animals to see in its grounds, and some of these are very endangered! Or, if you fancy something slightly more relaxing to do with the kids, you could take them on a boat trip up the River Dee and learn about the history of the area. If you fancy something a bit more challenging on the waterways, you can take a canal boat on the Cheshire Ring. This is 97 miles of canals and it takes around 50 hours to complete, perfect for a long weekend.
Food and Drink
There is not a day that goes by that you can’t go without eating, so why not do it in style? If you find yourself on a Cheshire dating site and need something to do, there are plenty of food-related ideas for you. You could try a tea room for a quiet date. Or if you are taking the family, you can check out some of the farm shops to fill the fridge. Or, for the best of both worlds, head to one of the restaurants that serve local produce and then pick up the supplies so that you can make your favourite dish at home.
Take a Hike
If you fancy something a bit different, why not take a hike up through the hills and mountains of the Cheshire Peaks? There are around 100 miles of Peak District to explore including the Gritstone Trail which is a 35-mile walking route. It looks like if you use dating sites in Cheshire, you need to be clear about walking and hiking. These hikes are not for the faint-hearted and some of the trails can take a full day to complete.
It shouldn’t be surprising that there are plenty of history and heritage things to do in the area. There are loads of museums to show you how life used to be. For something really different, check out the Anderton Boat Lift, a piece of classic engineering that was designed to lift cargo boats from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal. History is not for everyone, and maybe not the best first date idea. Unless it’s over 50s dating and you want something relaxing and different to try out.
I don’t normally like to include shopping as part of my activity recommendations but this time I will make an exception. Why? Just check out how cute one of the shopping districts is! The Rows is a two-tiered Medieval gallery that is completely Insta-worthy and one of the oldest shopping facades in England. Once upon a time, the places was filled with shoemakers and ironmongers, now it has boutiques and high street shops for your pleasure.
