why?

by snobzywobzy

why do people flock from all over the world to look at this tacky clock? I live in chester and i don't understand why millions of tourists have to take pics of it in the middle of the street and get in the way! It's a hidious clock, so please tell me why people are so amazed by it?

Re: why?

by cliffcoe

Maybe because they do not wear watches ??

Re: why?

If it's the one on Eastgate, maybe it's because they think it's a) a nice bit of Victoriana or b) a nice bit of engineering/design or c) well-known for either or both reasons.

Or maybe they think it's just arresting/pretty/on the site of the Roman east gate/on the cover of some guidebook somewhere so is thought to represent Chester.

Personal taste is infinitely variable; just as well, or the world would be hugely boring.

I don't know - maybe they come to see Chester rathe than the clock?

Re: why?

by iwys

I think tourists mainly flock to Chester because of its cathedral and Roman heritage.

Of the city's more modern landmarks, although I prefer Stephen Broadbent's sculptures, I don't think the clock is that bad. It does, as you rightly point out, get photographed a lot. In fact, it is the second most photographed clock in Britain, after Big Ben. One of the reasons for this is probably its prominent, central location.

PS Sorry, I'm one of the guilty people who photgraphed it.

Travel Tips for Chester

River Dee

by iwys

Its position on the River Dee once made Chester the most important port in north-west England. The river is 110 km long and flows from the mountains of Snowdonia, through Chester, down to its estuary between Wales and the Wirral Peninsula, where it discharges into the Irish Sea.

The river passes and around the Earl's Eye meadow. The river side is used as a recreation area with a bandstand, benches and boat cruises, by two bridges. The first is the Queen's Park Suspension Bridge, which forms the only exclusively pedestrian footway across the river in Chester. The second is the Old Dee Bridge, a road bridge and by far the oldest bridge in Chester, being built in about 1387 on the site of a series of wooden predecessors which dated originally from the Roman period.

Above the Old Dee Bridge, the river has a weir, which was built by Hugh Lupus to supply power to his corn mills. Following th construction of th weir in the late nineteenth century, the river here silted up and became shallower and slower.

Nowadays, the river is mostly used by pleasure boats.

Walking along the City Walls (3) All different

by MarvintheMartian

This part of the wall is opposite the Canal Locks on the way down towards the race track. The wall was originally Roman but has been built and rebuilt by many through the ages with alot of the structure from Medieval times.

Great cocktails!

by clareabee about Fiesta Havana

I have never actually eaten here (or I could have and not remembered....the cocktails are quite strong!) so can only comment on the drinks which are yum!

Good choice of cocktails - as well as beer if that is not your thing!

More of a venue for groups of pals rather than romantic night out! Strawberry Daquiri - yes i know its not food but it is good....and it does have strawberries in so counts as one of your five a day surely?

Queen’s Park Suspension Bridge

by grayfo

The original suspension bridge was built in 1852, Chester Corporation took over the responsibility for the bridge in the early 1920s and demolished it in 1922. It was replaced by a new bridge in 1923 and restored in 1998.

Walking around the walls of Chester

by gordonilla

There are some 2 miles (just over 3 km) of unbroken city wall to explore. I was surprised by the experience, and although I did not do the full circuit in one walk, I did walk the full length of the walls.

I understand that you can join a formal tour of the walls - I past several of these groups as I completed my solitary walk, enjoying the sights and views.
