Top 100 Attractions Review

Storyhouse theatre, in my opinion, has been a long time coming and what they have done with this once empty building is truly impressive. The architects along with the theatres project managers have pumped a breath of fresh air into this once art deco cinema and along with its modern additions, they really have done Chester proud. With some amazing shows, films, artists and an impressive library, there truly is something for everyone at Storyhouse and as if that wasn’t enough, they have a great little cafe to boot, with some of the best coffee I’ve tasted in a while. All in all I was pleasantly surprised with Storeyhouse and I can’t really complement the theatre without commenting on the staff within, who it has to be said are really friendly and go that extra mile no matter what’s asked of them. But don’t just take my word for it, why don’t you see for yourself!
