Nantwich is a charming market town. Nowhere, apart from Chester, has more historic listed buibings in Cheshire. St Mary’s Church is referred to as “The Cathedral of South Cheshire”. We still have lots of independent traders, offering a very different shopping experience. Where else could you have coffee in an Elizabethan Bookshop, lunch in one of several historic pubs, afternoon tea in a deli that also has a display of bygone items from old shops and stay in a historic hotel where previous guests include members of the Royal Family, Franz Liszt (the composer), and celebrities – including Jon Pertwee (Dr Who) who brought one of the Daleks, and three different Formula One Champions?
Alternatively you can go for a walk along the River Weaver and Nantwich lake, and the Shropshire Union Canal.
