The canal along the north side of Chester is cut through the living rock and provides a few very nice spots for bouldering as evidenced by the chalk marks. Even if you left your rock shoes at home you should still be able to work a few problems on this wall and get away from the crowds while you're at it.
Chester racecourse is situated alongside the River Dee, not far from the City Centre. The racecours is famed for its' great hospitality with a great sounding restaurant on site and fixtures and events galore.
It soon may not even be possible to see football in Chester at the deviant stadium as the club there may be closed down!
Take a walk down to the river and hire a motor boat (quite slow) or a pedal boat or even a rowing boat. I think boat hire is for about 30 minutes and it costs about £6.
I know when we went we got off the boat at 6.30pm and we were the last people. They closed then! I found this really strange that light nights and nice weather was here at last and a place that is supposed to cater for tourists shut up so early! Very strange.
Lovely scenery as you wend your way along the river.
Chester is famous for its horse racing and has regular meets thoughout the summer season.
If you are in the area when they are on it would make for a good day out - got use public transport - don't even consider driving in it is crazy!
