Travel Tips for Chester

Riverside Stroll

by sandysmith

The river is a lovely area in chester and can be bustling with activity on a summer's day. Pavement artists display their artwork for sale, boats take trippers up the river or you can simply stroll along with friends or enjoy a rest in a cafe.

Mmmm... Pub food

by DrewV about The Albion

If you're in Chester, then you've likely been in Britain for a while now, so you've no doubt encountered the joy of pub food. Sure, it's a more or less acquired taste, but if you like a good bangers and mash, accompanied by a bracingly cold Guinness (yeah, they serve it cold now), then you ought to pay a visit to the Albion. Great World War I decor lines the walls, and the folks are friendly. Most importantly, the pub is not kid-friendly, so it's a nice break from the field trip masses.

Chester Zoo

Chester Zoo
The Zoo was founded by George Mottershead who wanted a zoo 'without bars'. Today it's the largest zoo in the UK and it supports conservation worldwide. More animal pics in my Travelogue

The Rows

by Balam

The Medieval Merchants shops and houses, A merchants home consisted of a living hall and a shop over a stone cellar. as the sandstone bedrock was only just below the surface cellars had to be virtually at street level. All other accomodation was then pushed upwards. From the early 16th c the shops expanded outwards too and so had to be supported by wooden posts set in the street below. Eventualy more shops filled the spaces at street level and gaps between houses were built up and the galleries joined together.
During the Civil War Chester took a great deal of damage from the guns of Oliver Cromwell who laid seige to the city for 18 months. The damage was only slowly repaired with the Georgians enclosing the Rows and adding new brick facades whilw the Victorians looked back to the middle ages and copied the half timbered apperance that now gives Chester it's unique look.
Along the Rows you can see some facinating glimpses of history with the sloping outerboards in the galleries that used to display the wares of the shops along with some rough wattle and daub walls from the middle ages and the arched medieval cellars still visible on ground level and then under the ground and visible in some cellars there is still bits of Roman architecture.

We observed the Original Wattle and Daub wall at The Boot Inn on Eastgate St. You can also wiew the remains of a Roman hypocaust in the cellar of Spud u Like on Bridge St (you have to ask)

Half-Timbered Houses

by DrewV

Just off the Cathedral, these houses line a small street, more or less linking the Town/City Hall with Eastgate.

From what I've heard, even though these houses may look highly medieval, they actually date from the Victorian Era. If that's true, then the street represents one of the oldest attempts at restoration and period architecture that I've seen. If not, it's still quite cool.
