  • This busy street has ornate Victorian and mock Tudor buildings, stylish shops and cafes. I love the window shopping in the unique timbered Rows. Buskers and mimes add colour and entertainment to the shopping experience. The ornamental Victorian clock sits on the city walls and is a great vantage point from which to view the street life. The steps leading up to it are steep, but there is easy access next to the cathedral, just a short walk away.
  • This is a beautiful part of the town, renowned for its historic culture. There are tours and you couldn't go to a nicer place. I must say that there are a few beggars on the street all around Chester which is a bit annoying but people have to live don't they. I would say that you need a good few hours to get round most of the town and it's places.
  • Chester is such a lovely place. Great walk along the city walls. A city that has a lot to offer.
  • How photographed is the clock? If you are visiting Chester you must take a picture. Even living here I don't take it for granted. Get up on the walls and get close to the ironmongery, it's very impressive. A very photogenic tourist spot.
  • Always nice to visit Chester - 2facts you maybe didn't know -1. It's still legal to shoot a Welshman with a bow and arrow inside the city walls ! And 2. The clock on wall's has only 3 faces - the one that faces Wales is blank - because of the saying - wouldn't give them the time of day !
