Really enjoyed just sauntering through Chester City Centre, just browsing around the shops & taking in the lovely scenery & buildings. Only here for a short stay but would definitely return to visit other places in & around Chester, so much more to see.

Did this bus tour with a friend for a laugh - visit the city every few weeks or so for work but came for a day out around the pubs and decided we'd do the tourist thing. Despite having lived not too far away for many years, and being familiar with the city, I did learn a lot. It was fun to drive around on the top of a bus rather than in a car stuck in traffic and you do see a lot more than you imagine is there, and learn a lot about the history that you should know, but don't.
I would recommend it to tourists - but also to residents as it's not mega expensive. Good drop off at the river, and easy to get back on the bus when required... good pubs!

A small contained town within the four gates of the city. A roman city with remains from our ancestors. Lots of character and tourists from around the world visiting this location. Very interesting, 'The Rows' are unique to this city, enjoy the news from the local town crier at midday.Stroll along the riverside or the roman/medieval walls and admire scenic views. Recommendable for a weekend break, if you go by car use the 'Park and Ride' facilities as parking is at a premium price, buses run every 15 mins for using this service. There is a free bus from the station if you arrive by train right into the town centre.

Having visited Chester, to see relations, for many years we thought it was about time we did a walking tour to find out a bit more about it's hidden gems. We were not dissappointed and it was £5 (OAP rate) well spent. We met at the Tourist Information Office for our morning tour, the guide was extremely knowledgeable about Chester pointing out out various things we had walked passed many times before without spotting them and a lot about the history of the city right back to pre-Roman times. There were only six in our group which allowed us access, with permission, several old shops and The Boot Inn, to see unusually archetecture and other things of interest. The hour and a half just flew by and we left it feeling we knew Chester a great deal better than we had on our other visits, well worth doing.

Went with friends, similar age to ourselves. It was a lovely day, glorious sunshine when we went, so I'm sure this added to the nice time we had. The boat trip was approximatley 30/40 mins, informative and the views were beautiful, we could buy a drink on board and staff were very pleasent and well mannered. We then hopped on the bus, just a short walk away form the boat. Again, we had a lovely trip and were able to hop on and off wherever we liked. The bus trip was also very informative about Chester and the different sights, overall, a really lovely day and Chester is such a pleasent town to walk around, with plenty of nice places to eat. I felt that we could have taken our 9 yr old had she been with us that day and she would have enjoyed it too!
