Chester here we go!

by snowball2004

Hi all! I plan to visit Chester for a day trip very soon.

Any recomended places /sights and restaurants to visit while I am there?

Thanks in advance! :)

Re: Chester here we go!

by leics

Chester's a lively, historic city. Depending on your tastes, you could walk the city walls (2 miles), see the Roman artefacts at the Grosvenor Museum, visit the Roman amphitheatre and/or go shopping in the 'Rows' .......two-storey Medieval buildings. There's also the cathedral and lots of other historic buildings to see, and plenty of places to eat and drink. Enjoy your visit!

Hi there - in support of the first reply - my bit:

If the weather is fine, do walk the City Walls if you can, it is a wonderful journey and way to see the city, the race-course and River Dee, the beautiful architecture of the "Rows", ... and a gentle, relaxed time around the "Cross" and cathedral is rewarding. The Tourist Information is right opposite the Cathedral, helpfully.

The Rows are particularly good in rain, because of the covered nature of the upper tier walk way, and there are lovely tea shops, cafes and "more expensive" shops to browse.

If you like French cuisine, I often go to Francs Restaurant. (Internet search).

If I think of more, of use, I'll send it.
Best wishes
Malcolm

Travel Tips for Chester

background reading: Asterix

by Jonathan_C

If your kids are not already fans of Asterix and Obelix you should consider introducing it to them before your trip to Chester. All of the Asterix books are a joy to read and are liberally seasoned with historical fact (along with lots of fiction). Reading several of them will leave you with a sense of the world of Roman legionaries at the time of Julius Ceasar. It was Julius Ceasar who first invaded Britannia, though he did not stay, and knowing about this period will give the the context you need to understand the conquest of Britain that occurred about one hundred years later.

Bluecoat Hospital

by sandysmith

Th Bluecoat Hospital was built as a charity school in 1717 but modifed in the 1850's.
The adjacent city gaol had its dungeons cut deep into the sandstone, below the city wall. There were no windows in some so the only air prisoners got was by pipe.

River Dee

by Pichayada

The Groves, Chester's riverside promenade. Walk along the riverside.
There are refreshment kiosks, pubs and landing stages from where boats depart for cruises up the Dee and from where rowing- and motorboats can be hired.

Eastgate

by bugalugs

Originally four gates led into the city, Eastgate being the main one. The bridge was erected in 1768 and the actual gates removed, this was to allow for people to walk across the walls and at the same time allow traffic to flow better below. This bridge was paid for by Lord Grosvenor.

Bear and Billet Inn

by sabsi

The house this pub is in must be one of the most beautiful buildings in Chester! The front is half timbered with more than 1000 pieces of glass in the windows!

We had a drink in the pub and it was quite nice as well. The building is more beautiful from the outside though!
