Cheshire is a historic county in northwest England, between Greater Manchester and the Welsh border. It’s known for its picturesque English countryside with rolling hills and green meadows, as well as some of the country’s most impressive historic structures. Perched on an outcrop above the rivers Dee and Ceiriog, the 14th-century Chirk Castle is one of the best examples of a medieval fortification in the UK. The Chester Roman Amphitheater is both a Grade I-listed building and Britain’s largest stone-built Roman amphitheater. 

    Cheshire covers over 900 square miles, with well-maintained roads connecting many quaint villages to nearby cities such as Manchester and Liverpool. The county offers no shortage of photogenic spots for budding photographers, such as medieval castles and Tudor estates. Miles of scenic trails are available for explorers, especially in Delamere Forest (Cheshire’s largest single woodland area) and Tegg’s Nose Country Park (with excellent vistas of the Peak District).
