Chester is a gorgeous historic town that lies on the river Dee in the county of Cheshire. The city is well worth a visit where you can admire its collection of timber-framed houses and red-sandstone buildings, surrounded by the city’s Roman walls. Chester was a royalist stronghold during the English Civil War, and along the walls you’ll see the tower from which King Charles I used to watch his troops during battle.

There are plenty of trains that travel to Chester coming from London Kings Cross. Direct trains also run from Liverpool Street station and Birkenhead.

Aside from the city walls, another great attraction in Chester is the series of two-level galleried arcades arranged at the four streets that fan out in every direction from the Central Cross. Known as The Rows, it features a gorgeous mix of Tudor and Victorian architecture.

Originally built as a Benedictine abbey erected on the remains of an older Saxon church, Chester Cathedral is another famous attraction in the city recognized for its striking medieval architecture. A smaller church also worth visiting is the St. John the Baptist Church, which was built on the site of an older Saxon church.

The Groves is a riverside walk that runs alongside the River Dee starting from the Grosvenor Park and heads towards the Old Handbridge. There are also motorized tour boats that you can take for a trip down the beautiful river.

For museum fanatics, the Grosvenor Museum is worth a visit. It features a complete collection of Roman tombstones and at the back of it is a beautifully preserved Georgian house.
