And since you can get the Liverpool to Chester train and be in this walled city in just 40 minutes, what's stopping you from exploring? Home to amazing museums full of Roman treasures - and of course we've got great deals for Chester Zoo as part of our 2FOR1 offers - it's a must-see if you're touring the North West.
