Chester City Centre

The historic City of Chester is situated in the beautiful county of Cheshire - which shares borders with Shropshire, The Wirral, Lancashire and North Wales. Chester is positioned on a sandstone spur on the River Dee.

The City of Chester has a varied and fascinating history and can claim to be the only British city with such well preserved ramparts, there is a two mile walk around the original red sandstone Roman City Walls. The shopping centre of the City boasts its famous two tier shopping rows and has bars and restaurants set into the arched cellars of the buildings.

Wharton Lock Holiday Apartment is a short walk along the canalside path from the city centre of Chester. The canalside walk takes you past The Old Harkers Pub with its Real Ales and Ciders - fantastic to wash down one of their wonderful meals - the sliced roast ham, eggs and chunky chips is not to be missed!

A visit to Chester could include a day out to the world famous Chester Zoo, a boat ride on the River Dee, a meal on the Hotel Canal boat, a walk in the beautiful Grosvenor Park, a picnic in "The Meadows" by the River Dee or simply an icecream while you sit in The Groves, watchingh the ducks and swans play on the river.

Thank you for your response, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We pride ourselves on providing a good quality holiday to our guests (including the standard of our toilet paper!) We can only assume the cleaning company left out some toilet rolls left by an earlier guest, we have now instructed them that only our chosen quality of toilet paper should be left out.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a nice review of the apartment. We are very happy that, despite the cold weather, you enjoyed a warm stay in the apartment with your friend. We are fortunate to have Artichoke, Harkers and Barton Rouge just down the canal so that even in bad weather conditions it is possible to enjoy a night out. Best wishes Sandra and Graham
