Getting here and around
The most convenient way to Cheshire with your own vehicle is arriving by P&O Ferries into Hull. From there it is an approximately a two and half hour drive to Chester for example.
Cheshire is just south of the major cities of Liverpool and Manchester and in turn their respective airports. Manchester Airport is the larger of the two and offers flights to destinations across the world. If arriving by road there are multiple A roads and two M roads ensure that visitors can arrive smoothly into the county and get around just as easily. If you are visiting by train, much like the rest of the UK, Cheshire has multiple mainline and local stations from the cities of Crewe and Chester.
