Chester Cathedral began its life as the St Werburgh's Abbey church, which was part of a Benedictine monastery that dates back to 1093. The present church that is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary dates from between the 10th and 15th centuries with some of the original Norman features still visible today despite many modifications over the centuries. There is evidence that the site was used as a place of worship dating back to Roman times.
Following the dissolution of the monasteries under the reign of King Henry VIII this was one of the few religious buildings in England to survive. Instead of it being destroyed it was handed over the city and became the cathedral church of the city following the newly created Diocese of Chester in 1540.
Chester Cathedral is open for visiting daily from 9am until 5pm (Monday to Saturday) and from 1pm until 4pm (Sunday).
Admission charges are:
Adult - £5.00 (6 Euros)
Senior Citizens - £4.00 (5 Euros)

Liverpool John Lennon Airport
Liverpool Airport is one of the oldest in the UK, having been officially opened in 1933. It was renamed Liverpool John Lennon Airport in 2001 when extensive refurbishment was undertaken, and a statue of Lennon is in the main passenger walkway. It is the first airport in the UK to be named after an individual.
The airport now handles more than 5 million passengers a year with scheduled services to 69 UK and Europe destinations. Holiday charter flights increase the traffic in the summer season. Two of Europe's largest low-cost airlines - easyJet and Ryanair - use Liverpool as a base.
Motorway links are close to the airport and regular bus services operate to the centres of Liverpool and Manchester, and surrounding towns. Liverpool city centre is only 7 miles.
The terminal provides the usual range of shops, taxis and car hire outlets, as well as a conference centre on site. Wi-fi has recently been introduced throughout. The terminal is often used for art and photography exhibitions.
The Friends of Liverpool Airport provide tours of the airport (bookable in advance) which consist of a 45 minute presentation of the history of the airport and a one hour walking tour of the facilities.
SDC Colour Museum
This is the only museum of colour in the UK. It is divided into two distinct sections. These are entitled the World of Colour and the Colour and Textiles Gallery.
The World of Colour contains various exhibits that explain the properties of colours. There are experiments that show how different colours are perceived by different people and why some people and animals see the same colour completely differently.
The Colour and Textiles Gallery covers the history of colour, tracing it back to the early dyes used by the ancient Egyptians. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm. Admission is free.

South Lakes Wild Animal Park
Since it opened in 1994 this zoo park in the south of Cumbria has been involved in major conservation and animal breeding programmes. It provides a home for over 100 species (including lions, bears, penguins, primates, lemur and kangeroos), many free to roam around the park. There are demonstrations and hands-on exhibitions given by the keepers. The park is home to both the Sumatran Tiger Trust and the Wildlife Protection Foundation. A highlight of feeding time is the climbing of tall poles by the tigers to reach their meat, a device to keep them exercised. The park has a cafe serving fast food, a gift shop and a large picnic area.
Daily 1am - 5pm
Senior, Child: £7.00
Car parking is free. The park is wheelchair accessible.
