Moving to Chester

Moving to Chester

Are you thinking of moving to Chester? The city has plenty of history, Roman, Georgian and some wonderful monochrome gothic buildings. Shopping is excellent; Chester Rows in Bridge Street has shops on two levels with continuous half-timbered galleries, one row of shops above another. Some are original 13th century buildings; some of the others are impressive Victorian facades but nevertheless – well worth a look. Above all, the house prices are very reasonable!


Excellent, you can hop on the M53 to Liverpool or the M56 to Manchester. The A55 will take you to north Wales. By train you can reach Liverpool in 45 minutes and Manchester in an hour. Both Liverpool and Manchester airports are a drive of 45 minutes.

When you tire of the races, a pre-dinner drink at the Arkle Bar and Lounge at the Chester Grosvenor would be my choice; followed by supper in the Riedel Cellar where Michelin starred chef Simon Radley does an excellent bespoke menus with a stunning and varied wine list.
