Chester is an aspirational place to live and work for many reasons. In fact, the UK Hot Housing Index recently named Chester as the best place to live in the UK. Founded by the Romans in AD79, Chester has a wealth of historical and cultural heritage but it is also a beautiful city with stunning countryside and coastlines just a few miles away.

However it’s not all about the history, Chester also has a contemporary edge with modern infrastructure, vibrant economic status and an innovative enterprise community. Chester benefits from a mainline train station with easy access to Manchester, Liverpool and London. Thanks to its strategic location, with excellent access to the major motorway networks and two international airports, all of this is within easy reach of the rest of the region.


City highlights also include:

  • An outstanding shopping experience with its historic two-tier rows and traditional department stores sitting alongside modern shopping centres and outlets
  • An abundance of high quality restaurants, cafes and bars
  • Historic city walls and visitor attractions¬†including the magnificent Cathedral, Racecourse and acclaimed Zoo
