“Boat trip”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Excellent way to view this lovely city from the water and see and hear about the history and some of the famous people who are connected with Chester. This is my grandfathers birthplace and i always wanted to go back and see as an adult.

“Lovely”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I love bringing my children here. We walk and have ice cream together.
It's clean and it has places to buy refreshments.
It's easy to get to from the local car parks.

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

It's lovely to walk along the river and spot the wildlife. There is a pub there that does meals, there is also somewhere to buy snacks and ice creams. It's a few yards from the centre of Chester and there is a park nearby too. Go for a boat ride down the River dee!

“Peaceful river”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This is a beautiful, picturesque river, where boats may be hired. There is also a pretty park, where the squirrels actually come running up to you, looking for food! Many bars are situated along the riverbanks, where you can just relax and drink in the beauty of this place!

“Nice place to walk”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

With a pub at one end and a nice cafe at the other, this is a great place to meander along and take your time to watch the river flow past. There's plenty of seating and free parking for a few cars with a 60 minute time limit. Also in the season, the pleasure boats ply up and down the river.
