After the crowds in The Rows the river make a good place to relax and take in a different side of Chester. We did the half hour boat trip as well, again giving a different perspective.

We had a half hour cruise on the river and were really wowed by it. The houses backing on to it are splendid and with all the boat clubs along the bank there was lots to watch.

A walk along the city wall will bring you to River Dee and it was quite a pretty sight that gave off a calm and relaxing vibe.

Stunning route for cycling along the River Dee. Beautiful routes both upstream and downstream of Chester running all the way into Wales.

We wandered along the river in Chester from Grosvenor Park in the east to Lower Bridge Street in the west. Only a 'potted' view of the river but very interesting. This would appear to be the main area for rowing so plenty of activity at or near the boathouses. Such thirsty relaxation seems to be catered for with suitable refreshment... More

Short river trips (1/2 hour) but well organised with a good commentary. Interesting views of the properties along the way.
