Liked: A very friendly site, excellent wi-fi for the young people! We had a problem with our battery and the staff in the shop couldn't have been more helpful, selling us a new one and lending us tools to fit it too. The facilities and cafe were super.

Fully-serviced gravel caravan site (premium)

Liked: Large pitches, very quiet safe and secure. Showers and toilets spotless and always available. Lovely cafe and reasonably priced food and drinks.

Disliked: No fault of the Marina but due to lots of rain we attempted the canal walk and sadly abandoned it after squelching along the very muddy path.

Local attractions

Aqueduct Marina and Caravan Park's Cheshire location and easy access from the M6 means it's in a most handy spot to get to heaps of tourist attractions around this part of the north west and Chester. A popular option in the area is Oulton Park, the racing track in the little village of Budworth that bills itself as the most picturesque track in all the land, or you could hike around the wilds of nearby Delamere Forest, or stick to lazy days and potter around small Cheshire villages like Tattenhall and Tarporley. Chester is also easily accessible from the caravan park and has heaps to see among its old streets and swish shops. Animal fans make their way to Chester Zoo on the outskirts of the city to see as many as possible of its 12,000+ animals and over 400 species; if nature is your animalish thing, also get along to the Blue Planet Aquarium and its 100 or so living displays including the biggest school of sharks in Europe. Green fingered? Clear the car boot and drive over to Bridgemere, one of the biggest garden centres in the world and with all things gardenlike as well as toys and clothes in its mammoth shopping centre.
