We stopped for a couple of drinks at "The Boathouse". It is a lovely spot on a warm, sunny day and we got to see the sightseeing boats going up and down and the local rowing club doing their thing.

We always go to the river to relax, have an ice cream and feed the ducks. It's a nice little place close to the city centre, but yet far from the buzz of the city. The boat trip is nice as well, if you want to see a little bit more.

Had lunch down on the River - very pretty with lots to watch and see. We also took a boat trip up the river. Once out of Chester central there is not much to see put still a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

A well used & attractive stroll along the river bank Groves, with pleasure boats if all types & leading to the Grosvenor Park.

Took a stroll alongside the canal. Willow trees and barges galore. Simply stunning and so peaceful. Bliss.

The river winds around Chester and offers great views from the scenic bridges. Boat trips are on offer, as well as just sitting in the sun with a coffee and watching the passing scene. Walkers, cyclists, tourists all entertained by some very tuneful buskers. A grand place to spend a sunny morning.

A good option in poor weather as the boats were covered. We paid for the longer trip and then went on the bus trip and were told that we could not have the discount for two trips by the same company . Only the cheaper/ shorter trip got that. Bizarre.
