A number of new attractions for Chester and Cheshire for 2022 have been announced, as well as a new boutique hotel on Chester’s medieval Rows, Wildes Chester, overlooking the High Cross. It will feature 18 luxurious rooms, a spa, and restaurant X by Harry Guy.
Cheshire Live reports that the medieval Rows will also be the subject of a new online and audio walking tour, Discover The Rows, which launches this month, and allow visitors to learn all about the amazing first-floor galleries.
From February, Chester will be bursting with art installations, with a cross-city exhibition called Spring Blooms, part of a new campaign, Cheshire Designed By Nature, which aims to bring the Cheshire countryside into the heart of the city.
Expect nocturnal projections of wildlife, a sculptural swoop of birds, and a stage set in the Cathedral gardens for free theatre performances.
The Deva Roman Discovery Centre, one of Chester’s favourite museums has been reinvented to offer a 21st-century take on ancient history. The usually guides dressed as Roman soldiers will be complemented by new activities, hands-on exhibits, and sound-and-light shows.
Jodrell Bank, which was named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019, is set to launch its multi-million-pound First Light Project with the opening of the First Light Pavilion in Spring, a stunning new building in the shadow of the mighty Lovell Telescope.
The pavilion will include a gallery dedicated to telling the story of Jodrell Bank, an immersive projection space and auditorium, and an education hub and cafe.
For those looking for a sweet treat, then why not take a tour of Cheshire’s artisan ice cream parlous by following the new self-guided trail, The Delicious Dozen, with delicious Ince cream makers from the Welsh Borders to the Cheshire Peak District.
