Tour Boat on River Dee

This evening, I followed up on a previous visit (per this blog post) to explore the fascinating city of Chester which is located about twenty-five miles south of Liverpool in N.W.England. Population is 77,000.

Chester has much to offer, including:

  • Roman heritage and amphitheatre.
  • River Dee, on which tour boats ply their trade.
  • Cathedral dating back to the 11th century.
  • Interesting architecture.
  • Impressive Town Hall.
  • Canal dating from 1772.
  • Racecourse. This area was a harbour in Roman times but has subsequently silted up.
  • Various bridges over the River Dee including a suspension bridge for pedestrians.
  • Seven hundred year old shopping galleries.
