Well since our last trip to Devon not a lot is happening on the travel front in the way of firm plans, except that a trip to Tenerife and Barcelona is probably in the pipeline for September, but more on that later, but we did have an overnight stay in Chester.

Now Chester is probably in my top ten list of favourite cities in England, it’s truly a lovely place. For those who have never been it’s a walled city built by the Romans, the city has some amazing architecture, which include lots of timber-framed building, a cathedral and a spectacular gothic town hall. Chester is situated along side the river dee, and very close to the border of Wales, and a short drive from Liverpool. There are many things to do from exclusive shopping, to the normal retail chains, and many restaurants catering for all tastes.

Things to do

If you are planning a trip to Chester there are many Hotels from the very expensive to the very inexpensive, we managed to book a family room in a Travelodge in the centre of town for £10.00 yes that’s ten pounds (in the Travelodge sale) and not a misprint. Whilst in Chester you must visit the cathedral, walk the city walls, and visit the amazing gothic town hall (free entry) and take in the magnificent architecture of the many timber-framed buildings, also a must do is a walk along the riverside. So in my opinion if you are visiting England Chester is a must place to see, and if you live in England and have never been give it a try.
