Britain’s historic past is a constant companion as you stroll the ancient thoroughfares and meander along the Rows of this remarkable city. Explore the famous Rows: black and white half-timbered buildings above street level with covered walkways. Mainly shopping galleries now with the occasional pub or little museum tucked in between. You will find all the well-known high street names as well as traditional shops. The Three Old Arches in Bridge Street is the oldest shop front in England. These 13th century curiosities are unique to Chester. Nowhere in Britain is there more black and white architecture which gives Chester its outstanding medieval look.

The famous Chester zoo with its Condor Cliffs full flight aviary, Twilight Zone walk-through bat cave, four moated islands with the biggest Monkey House in Europe and new Spirit of Jaguar development is a must see.

We are close to the zoo so if you are visiting or taking a day with a keeper we more than happy to help with your accommodation and perhaps that early start.
