Eastgate Clock, Chester

Eastgate and Eastgate Clock in Chester stand on the site of the original entrance to the Roman fortress of Deva Victrix. In 1899 the clock was added to the top of the gateway to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria two years earlier, and has remained there ever since. It is a prominent landmark in the city of Chester and is said to be the most photographed clock in England after Big Ben!

Ambleside Roman Fort, Lake Windermere

Discover the ruins of a Roman Garrison on the shore of Lake Windermere. A far cry from the peaceful setting it is now, Ambleside Roman Fort was once a bustling, lively place (and not always a safe one!). With Lake Windermere right next to it, why not immerse yourself in history and have a spot of lunch by the lake afterwards?

The Way of The Roses, Lancaster

Get the bikes out and cycle through the Way of the Roses cycle path. Whether you cycle the full route, or just a part of it, there’s plenty to see on the way, such as Lancaster Castle, The Greatstone of the Fourstones and historic city of York. Journey through the historical route and landscape, whilst discovering new places while you do it.

St John’s Gardens, Liverpool

This beautiful memorial garden is part of the William Brown Street conservation area in the city centre, and is perfect for you to unwind, have a picnic, or just relax. Formerly a church, the terraced sculpture gardens display listed monuments from the late Victorian and Edwardian era.

St Mary’s Apostolate (also known as the Hidden Gem), Manchester

It’d be wrong not to include a hidden gem called The Hidden Gem! St Mary’s apostolate is totally unique to the city-centre. Inside, the unique design of the church complements the historical and religious art, sculptures and artefacts which are on display. This church is definitely a gem of Manchester!
