Chester has an exciting adventure taking place, right at its heart.

Chester Unlocked has been in progress since June, but it’s not too late for you to join in! Revealing the interesting history of Chester through fun activities for the whole family such as an intriguing hunt through the city to individual fringe events, this is not an event to be missed!


Hoot’s Route – Until 15th November

Revealing 30 of Chester’s unseen artefacts from the vaults of Grosvenor Museum, this trail will provide mounds of fun for the whole family whilst also educating them of the untold history of the city.

Also, to keep kids entertained, each artefact is guarded by Hoot the Owl (who is often hidden or in disguise) therefore they don’t have to be looking at the artefacts to enjoy the trail!
