relaxing by the Dee

We were lucky to have visited on a warm day. Had tea and scones by the river. A beautiful place to sit and the world go by

You can walk for miles along the river bank and its very pretty. We love it in Chester for this very reason.

We walked along the River Dee with the sun shining down on us and an ice cream in our hands. Its such a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The River is very scenic and the surroundings of the walls and buildings make it even more fantastic. A must see if visiting Chester

We spent some time by the riverside watching the water birds, the boats and it was so restful and pleasing to be able to be so near the City Centre and yet in such calm and pleasant surroundings.

The River Dee is a nice river and just a couple of minutes walk from the main shopping area. It is well worth that walk, and then take a seat and watch the world go by. We had an hour just walking along. Nice.
