On the banks of the River Dee, the city of Chester ranks alongside the likes of York, Bath and Oxford in terms of its history, heritage and attractiveness. Founded by the Romans over 2000 years ago, much of the Roman influence remains and Chester’s city walls are the most complete in Britain.
One of the city centre’s most unique features are the two-tiered black and white ‘Rows’ which means shopping in the city’s wide range of shops and boutiques is pleasurable whatever the weather.
Alongside its history and heritage, Chester is a lively, dynamic city with shops, bars, pubs, hotels and restaurants catering for the full range of tastes. It is also home to the ‘Roodee’ racecourse.
Property in Chester includes city centre apartments, exclusive suburban family houses and village properties. Popular locations include Curzon Park, Hoole and Christleton.
A number of the top schools in Cheshire are situated in Chester, which makes the city a good choice for families. Of the independents, the all-girls Queen’s School and the King’s School are both very highly regarded. The most sought-after state school is Christleton High School, whose catchment area is to the east of the city.
