Chester 48 Hours in


2000 years of heritage make Chester an absolute delight to explore. Here’s our recommended must-do’s for a 2 day stay.


Day 1


MORNING - Walk the Walls. Take a gentle stroll around the most complete City Walls in Britain, exploring the towers, Eastgate Clock, River Dee, largest Roman Amphitheatre and oldest racecourse in Britain. The 2 mile walk is the perfect way to get your bearings.


Before lunch stop off at The Cross where you’ll find the Town Crier making a midday proclamation. Chester is the only place in Britain to have retained this tradition. Proclamations take place Tuesday to Saturday, May to August at 12 noon (10.30am on race days). It’s free, fun and totally unforgettable.


LUNCH - There’s a fabulous choice of dining experiences in locations like the Rows, ancient cellars, and the racecourse. See Chester Mini Guide for ideas


AFTERNOON - Explore the City at leisure. Hop aboard one of the city sightseeing buses or take a ride with Chester Heritage Tours on their Edwardian omnibus.


Visit the majestic 1000 year old Chester Cathedral, located in the heart of the city featuring the finest mediaeval carvings in Europe. Enjoy afternoon tea in the Refectory where monks once ate in silence.


DINNER - The choice is scrumptious and ranges from Thai and Japanese to Brazilian and Chinese. See Chester Mini Guide for ideas


EVENING - Book your place on the Ghost Tour. Hear spine-chilling tales of ghosts and ghouls as you walk along some of the most haunted streets in the world!


It’s just one of many guided walks departing from the Town Hall Visitor Information Centre. See Chester Mini Guide for details or download the official Chester App from the I-Tunes Store.


Day 2


MORNING - Enjoy some retail therapy in high street stores, designer boutiques and independent gems. Walk along the famous Rows, the unique medieval two-tier galleries and find England’s oldest shop-front in Bridge Street or bag a designer bargain at nearby Cheshire Oaks.


LUNCH - Try a waterside eatery for a memorable dining experience.


AFTERNOON - Relax on board a leisure boat trip on the River Dee, passing Grosvenor Park, the delightful Meadows and the Suspension Bridge. A 2 hour cruise to Iron Bridge takes you past Eaton Estate, home to the Duke of Westminster. If you’re feeling more adventurous, hire a rowing boat or pedallo.


DINNER - Savour haute cuisine at one of Chester’s celebrity chef eateries.
