Things to do indoors in CheshireDon't let the wet and windy weather ruin your weekend plans. Leave your brolly at home and take a look at 12 of the best things to do indoors in Cheshire.

Join the Great Oceans Getaway at Blue Planet Aquarium, transport yourself through the countries of the world in search of remarkable creatures or come face-to-face with fearsome sharks and giant squids made from thousands of LEGO® bricks at the Deep exhibition at Chester Cathedral. This Saturday you can even create and take home your very own small LEGO® brick sea creature - choose from a turtle, a fish or shark! 

Cheshire is home to some fascinating museums, perfect places to escape the elements outside. Learn about Chester's roman heritage at Dewa Roman Experience, get hands on at Catalyst Science Discovery Centre or uncover the many secrets of Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker. 

If you are feeling energetic Boulder Hut and Freedome are the ideal places to let off steam and have some indoor fun. Or for something a bit different gather a team together and hunt clues, crack codes and solve puzzles to escape one of Chester's escape rooms. Choose from a range of themed rooms and see if you can beat the clock to escape.

There are plenty of shops and restaurants to pop in and out of at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and for retail therapy with a difference, why not visit Reclaimed World on Saturday (closed on Sundays), a unique reclamation and antiques emporium with everything from furniture to vintage collectables, reclaimed doors and flooring to garden furniture.
