"Why you will LOVE Chester... What to do there.." Chester Favorite Tip by laptopshopper

Chester General: 32 reviews and 39 photos

Favorite thing: Chester is a 45 minute train ride from Liverpool. Return costs about 4 pounds. Its an hour from Manchester.

One of the rare cities which looks like one pulled right out a children's fairy tale book. You will feel the charm of this place in the air.

I was in Chester for about 3 months and really, I would want to live there again. Small city, very friendly people and fewer problems than most other cities in England.

Its a GREAT place to shop! Try Burtons in the Chester Grosvenor for clothes. Really cheap but good shoes at ShoeFayers in the Chester market).

Try sipping a coffee sitting outside of Starbucks right in the city centre. Charming old buildings...

The area near the eastgate clock and the cathedral are great.

If you have time - you can also visit the BEST place to shop in the UK. From the Bus exchange, take the Bus No. 1 which will take you to Cheshire Oaks... The biggest outlet shopping destination in the whole of europe. I had bought a couple of GAP jeans from here at 5 pounds each!!!!

If you are with kids - take them to Chester Zoo...

Chester does not much of nightlife, but there is this place called Freak near the cathedral...I have heard it is good.

Spend 3-4 hours in Chester... you'll find the place great. That's for sure...
