Chester Christmas holidays

Chester in England

Cheshire is a beautiful county known for its rural villages of half-timber and red sandstone. The city of Chester is always a popular destination, thanks to its historic heritage and ancient aesthetic. The unique rows of half-timbered galleries are world-famous, the old-English-themed Christmas market will get you right in the festive spirit, and the 7km of ancient Roman walls will delight history lovers.

Chester makes an ideal location for a singles holiday this Christmas, and at the Abode Chester Hotel, you can enjoy a package holiday to truly remember. This modern 4-star hotel boasts great views over the city walls towards the Welsh hills and provides easy access to the very explorable city. The package we have put together is tailor-made for singles looking to enjoy a relaxing and casual festive break.

On Christmas Eve, guests can look forward to a welcome cream tea on arrival and a three-course dinner with wine before relaxing in the lounge bar. For those who want to celebrate the start of Christmas with Midnight Mass, Chester Cathedral is only a short walk away. The Christmas Day activities include a leisurely breakfast, an opportunity for a walking tour of Chester, a Christmas lunch, an evening quiz, and a buffet supper. Boxing Day will be a perfect opportunity to enjoy more of lovely Chester, see the sights, and partake in the Boxing Day sales.
