    Chester Favorites

    Just the other side of the wall from the Roman garden is this lovely row of tiny timber and sandstone cottages built as almshouses in about 1650. And no you haven't miscounted - only six of the original nine survive! Take a little detour from your walk around the walls to see them.

  • Riverside

    Chester Favorites

    It is great to take a walk along the river. Unlike York, Chester's riverside is full of pubs with beer gardens with riverviews and there is always something happening here summertime. You are also close to the remains of the roman amphitheatre and yes, there are sightseeing boat trips.

  • Eastgate Clock

    Chester Favorites

    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...

  • The Rows

    Chester Favorites

    The Rows are probably the most often photographed sight in Chester, a series of half-timbered buildings joined with long galleries, looking like a Tudor shopping mall -most are in fact Victorian! There is not one single "Rows" but several complexes of houses in the same style, with the best examples on Watergate, Eastgate and Bridge Street. The...

    Chester Favorites

    The "Roman Garden" monicker is something of a misnomer. Certainly there is no indication that a garden existed on this site near Newgate during Roman times. The garden space was, in fact, assembled in 1949 from bits and pieces of Roman artifacts found throughout Chester. The project was initiated as Chester's contribution to the 1951 Festival of...

  • Northgate

    Chester Favorites

    The old Northgate was a toll gate and was under the charge of the city sheriffs. The new Northgate was designed by Thomas Harrison and commissioned by the Earl of Grosvenor, the Mayor, in 1807. The classical arched gate was built between 1808 -1810. The Northgate is just by the Roman garden - where this pic was taken - and near to the...

    Chester's Town Hall, in Northgate St, is a good place to start and the Tourist Information centre is right next door if you need maps and guides etc.. in fact you can pick up a free City Centre Attractions Guide for money-saving vouchers on museum visits and places to eat in the tourist office.

  • History of Cheshire

    Although the history of Cheshire can be traced back to between 38,0000 BC and 40,0000 BC Cheshire is probably better known for the Romans occupation from 70AD that lasted for almost 400 years. During this period the town and fort of Deva Victrix (later called Chester) was created. After the Romans withdrew, Cheshire became part of Mercia, an...

  • Cheshire Sunsets

    One of the things I love about the day trips to Cheshire is that often when travelling home we get to see such beautiful sunsets over the cheshire countryside and the Dee Estuary as we get closer to home. So these pics show a few recent favouites. (taken November 2005)
