Chester is a city with a strong sense of history. It is a walled city which dates back to Roman times. However it doesn't just attract history nuts. There are lots of designer shops as well as discount areas. Even though the main shopping area is about a mile from the train station they are easy to get to. In fact getting a bus from the station to the shops is FREE as long as you show the driver your rail ticket.
The cathedral is a big feature of the city, as well as the Roman ruins. Even the shops play a part in keeping the history of the city alive. They are on two floors in the historic quarter of the city. It is easy to get good value food without resorting to McDonalds and there are lots of pubs or clubs offering good entertainment at low cost.
Chester has done a good job of keeping the history of the area alive whilst modernising the city. Now they just need to work on the football team!!
