The River Dee is a great place to spend an hour or so wandering along. From the weir to the Boathouse there is plenty to see and there are river cruises to enjoy too.

Would recommend a trip on the river Dee. A relaxing time and very informative due to the continuous documentary.

You shouldn't go to Chester as a tourist without going down to the river. Good idea also to take one of the good value boat trips. If you get good weather it is a really nice place to be.
