Chester is a small city with Roman and medieval walls stretch out to be two miles. Set on the Dee River that is nearby the Welsh border, Chester is indeed one of Britain’s Heritage Cities. There is no going wrong when visiting Chester. Visitors can opt to walk the walls, experience the architecture of Georgian and Victorian or waste a lot of money by shopping in the medieval two-tier galleries known as the Rows. There are tons of attractions to choose from, and all are more than worth experiencing.
Kick things off by visiting the Alexander’s Jazz Theater. This theater will satisfy those that are in search of good, unique music. The Alexander’s Jazz Theater is a famous venue for blues, rock, and jazz artists. It is also a main venue for the Blues Festival and Chester Jazz. For those that prefer a quieter atmosphere, the perfect place to head over to is The Cheshire Library.
The sooner you find it the sooner you will be able to take full advantage of its massive collection of books as well as audiovisual media. Do not think it is just another large library. The Cheshire is also a place for craftsmen and artists to show off their works. Another attraction to experience while you are still in the heart of the city, be sure to make your way to Chester Racecourse. One amazing thing about Chester Racecourse is that you will have the option to travel on foot, drive, or take a train.
One attraction that will require a full day to get a true feeling of what it is all about is the Chester Zoo. The United Kingdom had stamped Chester Zoo as the largest zoo they have. These 80 acres of land are reserved for well over 5,000 roaming animals. Not only is it the largest zoo in the United Kingdom, it is also the top zoo in Europe. Reason being, there are a lot of rare and mostly endangered creatures in the famous Chester zoo that breeds freely in large, open, land that closely resemble their natural habitat.
