Somewhere to stay?

by datapanik

I am planning to visit Chester for 2 days in June. Can any one recommend a good value bed and breakfast?

I'm fed up with the ridiculous cost of hotels in the UK which are generally a complete rip-off and are geared to catering for business types. Excuse me for ranting! Any help would be very much appreciated.

Sorry can't actullay recommend any but if you check out the web sites for some of these you should get a good idea. Any which are also in Alastair Sawday's 'Special Places to Stay' or another book called 'Staying Off the Beaten Track' should be good.

You can also check out www.smoothhound.co.uk or www.2stay.com. Both of those usually have some fairly reasonable B&B's listed. I like that they have photos, and one can see the place ahead of time. Sometimes the cheapest lodging in a town is at a Travelodge. Even so, that can be £30-$50 or more. I understand your gripe!!

When I was in Chester in May 2004 I stayed in this B&B: Mitchell's of Chester Guesthouse. It's about 25 minutes to walk from the centre, across the river Dee, but it was a very nice walk.Full English breakfst was included. I had a nice single, en suite, and two years ago I paid 30 or 35 GBP, I don't remember exactly. I do remember, however, that it was lot cheaper than many other places I had checked before.
Most probably it is more expensive now, but I would still recommend it.

Thank you all for your suggestions and weblinks. I will add them to my bookmarks and see what comes up. There's no Travelodge in Chester but that's probably a good thing! All the best.

Travel Tips for Chester

Clock History

by MarvintheMartian

The Eastgate Clock is the second most photographed clock in the UK! At least that's what I've been told. The most photographed clock of course is Big Ben.

Chester is famous for it's clock, yet it was only built in 1897 and so in Chester terms it's quite a recent momument!

At the end of the last century, there was much discussion as to the best method of commemorating Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee- 60 years on the throne- and a committee was convened to settle the matter.

The offer of a commemorative clock was made by Colonel E. Evans-Lloyd, and this was accepted. The eminent Chester architect, John Douglas was asked to design it, and some local relations of his, the Swindleys of Overleigh Road, who happened to be specialists in ornamental ironwork, were commisioned to produce the mounting for the clock and the railings for the top of the gate. The clock itself was made by the company of J.B. Joyce of Whitchurch, who are to this day responsible for maintaining it- they formerly had to make frequent visits to wind the mechanism, but since its conversion to electricity, this is no longer necessary.

Stephen Broadbent's other sculpture

by iwys

As well as his famous, "The Water of Life" in the cloister garden of the cathedral, Stephen Broadbent has another bronze sculpture in Chester, in front of the Town Hall. His "Celebration of Chester" was erected in 1992.

Chester Town Hall

by Tom_Fields

This is one the Britain's most beautiful civic buildings. Designed by William Henry Lynn, a Belfast architect, it replaced an earlier structure. It was completed in 1869. It was inspired by the Cloth Hall in Ypres, Belgium.

Chester Town Hall

by Evenith666

In 1862, The Exchange was burnt down, and a competition was set up to find a new Town Hall to be built on the site. In 1869, the new Town Hall, designed by competition winner W.H. Lynn of Belfast, was opened. The building was opened by The Prince of Wales, later to become King Edward VII.

The Town Hall is also home to the Tourist Information Office.

The Town Hall is the starting point for Chester's Millenium Trail, a good sight-seeing route to take when visiting chester. For more information on this trail, please see my general tips.

Town Hall

by iwys

Chester's imposing neo-Gothic Town Hall was completed in 1869. Like most of Chester's buildings it is made of red sandstone. Its tower and spire risieto a height of 160 feet. The building was completed in 1869, and it was officially opened on October 15th that year by the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII.

Today, most of the City Council's departments are housed in the Forum Offices which were opened in 1973 and are located adjacent to the Town Hall. However the Town Hall itself is still regarded as the symbolic expression of civic government, having changed very little in external appearance since its completion in 1869.

The entrance is approached by two flights of steps from Northgate Street. The year of completion, 1869, and the armorial bearings used by Chester until 1974 are carved above the porch which also contains four sculptures in Bath stone. These depict Roman soldiers building the walls of Chester; Egbert (802-39), King of the West Saxons and conqueror of Mercia; the entry of Charles I into Chester in 1642; and Hugh I receiving the earldom of Chester from William the Conqueror, c.1077.

A major scheme of repair and refurbishment to the Town Hall started in May 2008 and is expected to be completed by late autumn 2009.
