Why we chose to write about Chester…

The reason we have chosen this place is because Chester is James’ home city, and we are regular visitors form us to catch up with his family and friends. It is also a fantastic city rich in history and with plenty of things to do and see.

5 things to see and do in Chester

Walk along the Chester City Walls

Chester is a Roman city with walls surrounding the city centre. It makes for a beautifully scenic walk, taking in everything from the bustling shopping area of Foregate street, stunning Eastgate Clock, River Dee, racecourse and more.

See the animals at Chester Zoo

Chester is home to the UK’s number one zoo, and the vast area that the zoo covers means you can spend pretty much an entire day strolling around and seeing almost every animal possible.

Soak up the history in the Roman Gardens/Amphitheatre

With the Roman heritage clear to see, the Roman Gardens and Amphitheatre are a focal point of the city centre. Battles used to take place at the Amphitheatre, whilst the gardens were the resting place of the city’s occupants back in the day. The Grosvenor Roman Museum is free to visit and offers a great source of knowledge to learn more.

Be fancy and have Afternoon Tea at the Grosvenor

This is where our love for afternoon tea was born as we were given a voucher from Grandma Baker to have their signature tea here. This luxury hotel offers the city’s best sleep and also some of its best food!

River Dee

Down at the river is a fantastic way to spend a summers afternoon – indulging in the finest Cheshire ice cream, taking a trip on river cruise, or giving it a go yourself on a pedal boat!
