Chester

A return trip cruising to Chester takes 4 nights, 20 hours and includes 36 locks. However, you will probably want to spend 2 or 3 days exploring this wonderful city which was built by the Romans as a fort of considerable importance, they named it Deva. Chester is famous for its walls and is considered to be one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain. Within the walls is the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain.

Not to be missed is Chester cathedral, one of England’s medieval ecclesiastical masterpieces. Another site worth a visit is the Roodee, the oldest horse race track in Britain, which is still in use today. Chester boasts a fine selection of individual shops, which enjoy an elevated position above the street level. These covered walkways, or ‘Rows’ as they are called, provide excellent cover if it happens to be raining when you visit. There is no shortage of places to eat, many of which are steeped in history and full of character. For that really special occasion you could indulge in afternoon tea at the Grosvenor Hotel, a truly memorable experience. Not far away is Chester Zoo, according to Trip Advisor it’s the best zoo in the UK and the third best zoo in the world. If a whirlwind visit is all you have time for, then a trip in one of the open top tour buses will ensure you see the essential sights.
