“A city gem”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I worked in Chester many years ago and the renaissance of the canal area was a pleasant suprise its an artery to the city but also a quiet oasis.

The bars and restaurant's enhance the experience. The mix of strollers,joggers and cyclists works well.

“Morning stroll”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

A walk along the tow path gave an alternative view to the city walls and also the rear of properties not normally seen. We also encountered quite a few narrow boats making their way slowly along the canal

Great canal boat trip from Moat House Hotel, lunch and drinks provided, all with tour guide, good for wheel chair users too. Disliked nothing.

“what a nice walk”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Had a great number of walks along canal and we had drinks at the lock keepers which was very nice and watching the ducks and ducklings was hilarious . The barges where interesting and we seen the lunch barge float by with everyone waving and enjoying themselves. A great day out

“Lovely atmosphere.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Weekend visit to Chester and lucky to be at the same time as a narrow boat festival. Lovely atmosphere, very friendly people and a band for good measure.
