Enjoy the rippling waters of River Dee, a prominent river that flows between England and Wales. The 110 km (70 mi) long river is a wonderful site for water sports and fishing. Canoe down the tree-lined banks of the river, stopping in Chester for a pub lunch and some shopping. Relax at one of the parks on the Chester waterfront or catch an outdoor music show at the riverside bandstand. Hire a private boat to take you up the river for impressive views of the English countryside.
