Chester is an incredible small city with immense character and history. Surrounded by the most-complete Roman and medieval walls, stretching 2 miles around the heart of the city, Chester can feel like a hidden world. Within the walls though is an incredible mix of both old and new. The half-timbered buildings are iconic, and being outside can feel like you’re stepping back in time. However, move inside to chic boutiques and fashionable high street stores.
In fact, Chester is famous for shopping. You’ll also find the infamous and unique ‘Rows’ with their two-tiered galleries of shops. On the outskirts of the city is Cheshire Oaks, which is the largest designer outlet village in the country. Don’t miss a trip to the zoo and the cathedral too.
