We were lucky enough to see narrow boats using the locks and had a chat with a volunteer lock keeper.

“Locks and bird life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Excellent exercise and plenty to see, we loved watching the narrow boats slowly climbing the many locks. We could only imagine all those years ago without much in the way of mechanical help how this canal with all the locks was ever built. Today it would have been ruled out as a waste of money - How times have changed!

“Lovely canal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Chester canal is one of the best place for a long walk or to jog in Chester. The path running along it is well maintained and safe. Of course it is suitable to cycle along it too.

“A good place to see the narrow boats.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The canal side near the city centre is a good place to sit and watch the narrow boats, there are a number of pubs and restaurants along the towpath.
