Chester - old enough to make your spine tingle, yet young enough in spirit to be effortlessly fashionable.
Small enough to explore easily on foot, but big enough to be wonderfully cosmopolitan.
Chester is the only place in Britain to have maintained the tradition of regular midday proclamations at the High Cross where proclamations have been made since the Middle Ages. Chester's Town Criers, David and Julie Mitchell, are the world's first husband and wife Town Crier partnership.
With many of the Chester Attractions just a short stroll away, the city is packed out with things to do and see - probably one of the most impressive sights being the Rows, two-tier shopping galleries which date from the Middle Ages.
There are many other fine buildings, including the Cathedral, Amphitheatre and the second most photographed clock in Britain after Big Ben - The Eastgate Clock.
But Chester is by no means a city of the past, it can offer up to the minute entertainment and excellent shopping facilities.
You don't need to travel far from the city centre to find other main Chester attractions such as Chester Zoo, The Designer Outlet Village, Chester Cathedral The Roman Walls and Amphitheatre
FREE shuttle bus service from Chester Station direct to Chester Zoo - service will operate from 18th July to 29th August.
