This fabulous ancient City stands above the River Dee. Chester has attracted visitors since the Roman occupation of Britain. The Medieval walls not only encompass the City but 2000 years of history too.

Much of the City was rebuilt in the late 19th Century and the splendid black and white houses dotted all over the city were largely created by Victorian architects John Douglas and TM Lockwood.

Chester has some great shopping streets in the Centre of the city with the unique 'Rows' which are shops along a first floor walkway and probably date from the 13th century.

The Riverside area in Chester is a fabulous place to hang out, have a picnic or take a boat ride.
