Within its ancient city walls and a rich culture dating back to Roman times, Chester has plenty for travellers to discover. You’ll find an impressive cathedral and historic streets, which now host a thriving café scene. Scores of independent boutiques line unique, two-tiered covered walkways that are known as 'Rows'. Expect old-world charm by day and buzzing vibes in the cocktail bars, heritage pubs and live music venues by night.
Stay in a hostel in Chester and you'll be in and around the centre, within easy walking distance of all the action. You can bed down in a 120-year-old Georgian town house that has a comfy lounge and cooking facilities. If you want to meet other backpackers, look out for a Chester hostel with traditional-style dorms or choose a private en-suite room for some personal space. Lockers are on hand to store your things, and you'll get free Wi-Fi and city maps to grab as you head off to explore.
The heart of Chester is contained within the characterful city walls. To walk the 3km circuit footpath that takes in the medieval towers, head to one of the four main city gates: Northgate, Eastgate, Watergate and Bridgegate. The Victorian green oasis of Grosvenor Park sits just outside the city walls and is the perfect place to watch the world go by. A 5-minute walk from the centre will take you to the relaxed community of Hoole, with its parade of galleries, delis and bars, as well as pubs filled with students.
There’s plenty to see and do in Chester. You can take a dip in the public baths set in a Grade 2 listed building or relax on a 30-minute city cruise down the meandering River Dee. As you wander around the cobbled streets and quirky lanes in the central shopping zone, make sure to get a photo of the iconic Eastgate clock, England’s second most photographed timepiece after Big Ben.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a 40-minute drive away. The Arriva bus routes 80A or 86A or the express AirLink 501 leave from here to Liverpool’s South Parkway station, where you can get a direct train to Chester. The central area is easy to explore on foot, or a city bus will get you around for £1 a journey. If you need a taxi, there are ranks at Bridge Street, Princess Street and Foregate Street.
