Chester Travel Guide

Q: Is there an any more relaxing holiday than speeding through the canals of England at 4MPH
A: Possibly not. Although frm recent experience, we would also thoroughly recommend exploring the unspoilt and uncrowded coastline of Pembrokeshire.

"In days gone-by there’s been a host of invaders to Chester. Nowadays you don’t have to raid or invade the locals, they welcome you to hundreds of years of history, anytime of the year, to their heritage city. A host of black and white timber buildings, ancient city walls, and the stunning black and gold clock all contribute to the history of visits by the Romans, Viking raiders and the endurance of a Civil War. Chester is stunningly beautiful. Walk around the City Wall, which offers an interesting stroll around the old town where you will look down on the old Norman Cathedral, into the canal and its set of locks, with occasional re-inactments below as you see ‘’Romans’‘ telling stories of life so many decades ago. Highlight for me was the visit to the two-tier shopping complex which is The Rows. Standing for about 700 years the stunning black and white exterior is a photographer's dream and inside you’ll find modern shops offering the best in retail therapy. This may well be the oldest shopping frontage in the country. On my second visit I was truly thrilled to hear the Town Crier - what a colourful, loud addition he made to the historic theme in the city... superb. Walk around the compact Chester city or take the wonderful old 1920s heritage bus which captures the interest of photographers as you pass by the copious quaint, old buildings all over the town. Easy to imagine Handel and his pride when he played his Messiah for the first time in Chester Cathedral, I felt the history when I sat for a while in this magnificent, old house of prayer. Chester is ancient, it is steeped in history and you can use it for a base to visit many local attractions all over Cheshire."
