Bask in Burton's botanic beauty

A beautiful Cheshire village just 10 miles from historic Chester, Burton is about as picture-perfect as it gets. Stunning parks and gardens scatter in every direction, including the brilliant Ness Botanic Gardens. With origins going back as far as 1898 it's one of the finest Botanic Gardens in the country, with an equal mix of the most striking and rarest plants in the world. In fact, you'll find over 10,000 different types of plant being grown there. With special events, walks, talks and more, the Gardens are the perfect place for a day out.

Take the family to Chester Zoo

With Chester a mere 20-minute drive away, its world-famous zoo simply has to be high on your list of things to do. One of the largest in the country, it's been looking after animals of all shapes and sizes since 1931. From the Madagascan lemur, to baby rhinos and even fabulous flamingos, the zoo has a bit of everything, including a fascinating conservation and science centre.

Explore the cities of the North West

Burton enjoys a great location towards the edge of the Wirrall, and close to the major cities of Liverpool and Manchester. Treat yourself to a shopping spree and family hi-jinks at the all-emcompassing Liverpool One centre, or head over to the Manchester Museum to meet a life-sized T-Rex. Planning a trip to Burton?
