THINGS TO DO
With spectacular views across Cheshire, Pennines, Welsh Mountains and the Mersey, Beeston is one of the most dramatically sited medieval castles in England. Dating back 4,000 years, a visit to the castle also offers woodland areas, exhibitions, a medieval roundhouse and refreshments as well as many events held throughout the summer months.
Beautiful surroundings but offering so much more – if the walking and cycling trails are not your thing, then why not try Nordic walking, horse riding, or take a walk around the Gruffalo trail or if you prefer to be above ground then Go Ape could be for you. If you prefer something a little more active, compete in one of the many parks runs and events that take place throughout the year.
