About Us

Marketing Cheshire was born in 2011 out of the company Visit Chester & Cheshire. We are officially the tourist board, but no longer specialise in tourism alone. We are the agency of choice for promoting Cheshire and Warrington nationally and internationally to investors and visitors.

Cheshire has one of the strongest and most diverse economies in England for existing businesses and potential investors a stunning array of places to stay and visit and a quality of life that is really special. We believe Cheshire is truly 'the brightest star in the North.'

Marketing Cheshire offers core marketing services such as PR, Event Management, Social Media Support and Brand Consultancy to both public and private sector clients.
