CheshireTucked into England's northwest, the county of Cheshire might be overshadowed by its near neighbours of Merseyside and Greater Manchester but it's never overawed. In part, this is down to the county town of Chester, one of England's most historic – and most likeable – cities, with its amazing Roman heritage and medieval character – not to mention the country's most complete set of city walls (better even than York's), its most venerable racecourse and a 1,000-year-old cathedral. While Chester is a brilliant city-break destination, much of the rest of the county is a charming mix of stately houses and handsome rural villages much-loved by the footballers of nearby Liverpool and Manchester. Places such as Knutsford, Altrincham and Alderley Edge are amongst the fanciest (and most expensive) in the north of England, though Macclesfield (known for its former silk industry) and Crewe (traditional home of the railway industry) add a bit more Cheshire grit.
