Head for the Trees 
After spending so much time inside, embrace the outdoors with Cheshire’s much-anticipated outdoor adventure park. Think of the biggest wooden play structures and treehouses, high up in the trees, a massive maze to get lost in, wobbly zip wires, and giant slippery slides. All activities and crafts are included in the ticket price. The perfect, much-needed family day out.  

Go to the zoo
Chester Zoo is back open again. There is a limit on the number of visitors which means a pre-book system in place. 
If you're lucky enough to get yourself a spot, take the opportunity to be one of the first to see Alber,t,, the baby Rothschild giraffe who was born during lockdown.

Drive in cinema
The Christie are hosting a series of drive-in movies over the Bank Holiday weekend in the woodlands of Arley Hall & Gardens. 
With state of the art sound, the Iconic100 screen and a fantastic selection of movies, food and drinks Drive-in for The Christie is the perfect answer to a social distanced, socially bubbled night in support of the staff and patients of The Christie.

Go for a walk
Although the ‘stay at home’ rule ended on 29 March, many restrictions remain in place. People are advised to minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.
However, there are a number of walks available on our website, including this selection of walks from our archive.

Don't forget, for outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) the Rule of 6, still applies. This means either 6 people or 2 households are allowed to meet outdoors.
