Just go

We went for a walk along the Dee, very lovely, we also went on a boat trip which is well worth it. We went for another walk along the city walls the for a cold beer.

The main riverside is just a few minutes from the City Centre and is a beautiful place just to sit, relax and watch the world go by. I can't wait to return in the summer, when I believe they have regular live music in the bandstand

The River Dee has many stories to tell and I have spent many happy hours during the course of my life exploring this beautiful river that flows from near Llanuwchllyn in the hills of Snowdonia, passing through Llyn Tegid in Bala, then towards Llangollen, heading off to the magnificent Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, built by Thomas Telford, to carry the tremendous Shropshire...

A peaceful thread through the city of Chester, but go off-season for a quiet walk and river cruise, as we have visited in-season and it gets very busy. Lots of places to eat if it rains and things to see if the sun shines.

Nice place to walk but the path is not "alongside" the river but a bit away from it, so you don`t really feel as though you are walking along the banks of the river which really would feel nice. An easy, flat walk which could have been better if there had been a couple of cafe`s / bars at which... More

I took walk down to the river this afternoon and found it to be freezing, jumping in with clothes on will slow you down, confirmed. The sound of trickling water should have calmed me down and made me feel at ease, however did nothing of the sort only made me need to go to the bathroom, which the river does... More
