Reviewed April 6, 2013

Always have a boat trip on the Dee and there are plenty to choose from, rowing boats, motor boats or big river boats.

“A gem”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Great walk around the river bank and can be quiet peaceful if you know what time to visit. On sunny days, everybody likes to walk down to the Dee, see the ducks and get an ice cream. It's a lovely way to spend an hour

“The Mighty River Dee”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is a beautiful river which rises in the marshes beyond Llangollen and terminates in Liverpool Bay beyond Hilbre Island. I have always been fascinated by this river, having swam in it as a child, back in the 1940s as well as having kayaked sections of it last year. It meanders through the lovely Cheshire countryside and during the summer months, few experiences could be more pleasant than a leisurely paddle from Farndon to the weir at Chester. The river at Chester during the summer months, becomes alive with all manner of small craft, with many people opting for the pleasure cruises and the lively commentaries thereon. A pleasant walk after lunch can be had on the banks, with one or two hostelries from which you can enjoy the activities. The weir becomes a magnet for kayakers, and the bridges are very historical. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
