Very nice hotel or B&B?

by zuriga

We're thinking of a little trip to explore Chester. If you know of a very nice hotel or B&B (preferably not far from the city centre), I'd love a few names.
We wouldn't want to spend more than £90 or so a night if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I stayed in this guesthouse:
http://www.mitchellsofchester.com/
and liked it very much. It is not in the city centre, but connected by a foot path across a bridge.
My room was really nice, I liked the garden and they served a very good breakfast.

Why dont you try Premier Innn in Huntingdon, south Chester?
Huntingdon is a vilage wich is now part of Chester, and river Dee runs by it.
Across the Premier in is big Sainsbury, and Park & Ride so you can get bus to the town center,( stops at M&S)for 1.70GPB return.
Also in the visinity is a very nice Pub, actualy two, Try Pike & Rake at the top of the Vilage high street, past St Luke Church or visit the Red House.
The first one is tipicle English pub,with great food I might add, and offers buy one meal & get one for 1GBP. and the second is more of Gstro Pub, but has great views over Dee, and in summer months boats stop there for refresmants.
red house recently was redone and is very much new gastronomic experiance.
Prices for Premier Inn are based on room (sleaps up to 4 perope) rather on pre person.To find Premier Inn in Chester go to www.premierinn.com & choose Chester South
Address.

At the moment they have special offers like pay one nite get one free.
My sister lives in Hundington, and is a lovely place also extremely close to town center, but has feel that you are in the banks of the Dee,.
On the top of the road is roundabout and A41, A55,A51 are there, can take you to North Wales.
If you are staing for few day take a trip to Convay Bay. Great place of the North Wales shore.

Travel Tips for Chester

History of Chester

by grayfo

Chester began its recorded history when the Romans built a fort next to the River Dee around 75 AD. The Roman fort was called Deva and began as a wooden construction. It had a ditch outside and an earth embankment with a wooden palisade on top. At the start of the 2nd century parts of the fort were replaced with stone.

During the Medieval period Chester was the largest port in the north west of England. Even today there is still evidence from that era, the stone narrow bridge across the River Dee leading to Handbridge was the only river crossing into Chester.

Anchorite cell

by sandysmith

Chester legend holds that Harold, king of the Saxons, was not killed at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but escaped and came to Chester, where he lived as a blind hermit in the Anchorite's Cell, a simple sandstone structure near the river.

Oldest Pub in Chester?

by sandysmith about Bear and Billet

One of the finest frontages in Chester's black-and-white style, dated 16664. This building was originally the town house of the Earls of Shrewsbury, sergeants of the bridgegate in the 17th century and has been an inn since the 18th century. Oldest pub or not it certainly has a wonky beams on its facade and probably the most glass in it - over 1000 pieces!

Day at the races?

by Andrew_W_K

I'm not a fan of horseracing but if I had to attend a race meeting then it would be Chester without hesitation. It is the nicest racecourse in England, enclosed within the area between the river Dee and the city walls with a backdrop of Grosvenor bridge and the huge houses of Curzon Park the other side of the river.
The only downside is the very limited number of race meetings that the course hosts every year.
To make up for the lack of race meetings though the course hosts other events from classic car shows to show jumping.
Even when there is nothing happening its worth taking a wander over to see the course and its glorious setting.

Amphitheatre

by sandysmith

This is the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain and held about 7000 people. However only the northern part has been excavated - hence not much to see really. It was used for military practice, gladiator fights and public executions.

Do not be deceived by the remaining low curved wall enclosing the small central arena- the Amphitheatre's massive exterior wall measured 320 by 286 feet (95.7 by 87.2 metres) and stood 40 feet (11.5 metres) above the Roman street level, around twice the average present height of the city walls- you would have had to crane your neck to see the top! The interior wall facing the arena stood twelve feet high and the arena itself measured 190 by 160 feet (58 by 49.4 metres: an area of 2230 sq m).

Update Sept. 2004 - local source informs me that excavations are currently been undertaken on the ampitheatre so hopefully more more will be visible soon!!
