For Cheshire residents, TATTON Park, and Jodrell Bank are among the several tourist attractions offering free entry to them. Marketing Cheshire has announced the launch of the first Cheshire Residents’ Festival to correspond with English Tourism Week as an appreciation to people who live in the county for welcoming 48 million tourists a year.
To quote Katrina Michel, Chief Executive of Marketing Cheshire, “To celebrate English Tourism week, we are encouraging our residents to put themselves in the shoes of the tourists. Our tourist economy continues to enjoy a wonderful growth, thanks in a large part to the continued investment and the innovative nature of our world-class attractions.
Cheshire Residents’ Festival will give the opportunity for the residents of Cheshire to become even prouder ambassadors of our county, by giving them more of a taste of all that Cheshire has to offer and discover attractions they might not even have known were on their doorstep.”
Attractions offering free entry, between March 25 and April 2, will include Tatton Park, and Quarry Bank Mill along with Adlington Hall and Gardens, Cholmondeley Castle Gardens. Jodrell Bank will provide 250 free entry tickets to the discovery centre, a chance to explore the famous Lovell Telescope. Wildlife lovers can visit RSPB Burton Mere or Reaseheath Zoo and culture enthusiasts can enjoy performances at Crewe Lyceum for free, entry to the Port Sunlight Museum and the opportunity to have a behind the scenes tour of Chester’s new cultural centre, Storyhouse.
