Chester

Chester is one of those places that people think they know of, but if they haven't been, don't really know at all.
Most people have heard of The Rows - the unique double-story rows of medieval buildings that line the main high street, or Via Principalis, as the Romans knew it - but there is so much more.


You can take a walk around almost the entire walls of the old Roman city, or stroll along the attractive river Dee. There's the castle, the cathedral, the Roman villa......the list is endless.
The town centre itself is a maze of new shops, in modern arcades hidden from the high street, and small independant shops selling everything from rain forest products to American Christmas goods. Each shop individual in its own way.


The town clock sits high on the city wall, at one end of the high street
