    Hi i was bought up in chester area and I live in liverpool now.

    Chester Zoo is always a good place to take the kids, will have a good day there.

    In liverpool I usual park in liverpool one but it is expensive as is the albert dock area, or park in st johns center which I must worn you the actual shopping center is chav central but in the car park area Ive never had any problems and its fairly priced

    Try the yellow Duck marine at Liverpool dock is brilliant for the kids. The Yellow Duckmarine - Unique amphibious tours of the City of Liverpool

    The Science Museum in Liverpool is fantastic and free so you can have a ferry trip too.

    The Boat museum at Ellesmere Ports good, Ice Cream factory at Tattenhall, A boat trip down by the river at Chester and Jodrell bank is worth a look.

    Have fun

    Loads to do in North Wales and blinding roads!!!
    Electric Mountain at Llanberris, loads of slate mines (llechwedd is probably best) and The Great Orme Tram at Llanduddno are all good days out
    Chester is a good city with good shops and culture as well (If you can go as far as Northern culture???) Walk the City walls thats pretty cool or go to the races
    Enjoy and a good choice of area
