Places to go Chester?

Chester Shopping

Spoilt for choice, there is so much to do in Chester, Cheshire.

Here are some suggestions of things you can do and places you can visit whilst in the lovely City of Chester.

History & Heritage

Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral You don't have to be religious to understand the culture and history of Chester's Cathedral. We always stand mesmerized looking up at this work of art and wonder just how they built it all those years ago.

Take a guided tour when looking around, plus ideal trip if it's a wet day!

Chester Walls

Walls of Chester Talk a walk on the City walls which are one of the finest examples in the world. High above the streets sweeping around most of the city and bringing you to the River Dee. History abounds and it is a super way to take in parts of the city you almost wouldn't see. Head for heights? You will need it on the north-facing wall. This is a free event too!

River Dee seating area

River Dee Every time we visit we end up on the River Dee. Who can resist a leisurely trip along the river with regular sailings from the quayside near the weir? Ice creams are a plenty, or maybe a pot of tea for two. There are plenty of benches to sit on and watch the world go by on a lazy summer's day. 

Sporting Ocassions
