Research Claims Chester Is Most Cosmopolitan City In The UK

Research looking into the best places to have a luxurious city break found Chester to be the most cosmopolitan city in the UK.

The study, commissioned by Nio Cocktails, defined cosmopolitan cities based on the number of 5-star hotels, spas, Michelin star restaurants, designer shops and cocktail bars a city has, normalised the score by dividing it by population size and then created a ranking out of 100.

Chester was the winner with a score of 97, helped by its abundance across the board of every luxury touch a city break needs, as well as a rich culture and exciting range of events and attractions for every type of person.

Despite being a relatively small city, Chester managed to beat out Bath, Canterbury and Cambridge for the top spot, despite Bath’s historic reputation for luxury, Canterbury’s cultural tradition and Cambridge’s academic population.

Many people are looking towards city breaks and staycations within the UK, and the most attractive destinations are those that have the most appeal and the greatest wealth of cultural riches.

People, looking for five-star hotels and luggage storage in Chester found as many as 17 top-ranked places to stay, as well as eight spars, 12 cocktail bars, 11 designer stores and even a Michelin star restaurant.

This, along with the city’s Roman heritage, historic city walls and rich theatrical tradition have made the city a highly popular tourist destination.

Interestingly, many cities that are traditionally considered cosmopolitan, such as Brighton, Oxford, London and Liverpool, missed out on the top ten of this list.
