Though historic Chester is a delightful mix of exclusive stores, excellent dining and vibrant nightlife, you can never forget that this modern, exciting city has been shaped by 2,000 years of history.
Completely encircled by city walls, on which you can walk the bounds of the old city, Chester's most unique feature is the 13th century 'Rows' - two tiers of enticing shops, running through the main streets. Destinations for history hunters include the beautiful Gothic Cathedral and Britain's largest Roman Amphitheatre, built to entertain 7,000 spectators!
Magnificent in scale and breathtaking in beauty, Chester is a vibrant city combining graceful architecture and exclusive shopping. After a ramble around the historic medieval walls or a trip around the many shops and boutiques, there are plenty of places to pause and take refreshment in the multi-faceted cafes, restaurants and wine bars. Perhaps down a pint of traditional ale in one of the many pubs that quench the thirst of visitors.
