This pretty row of houses is typical of the Tudor architecture you will find in the centre of old Chester. Very photogenic too!

Walk down Watergate Street to the main road, cross over and Stanley Place is the next building you come to. It’s a magnificent Tudor timber black and white mansion, you can even hire it out. Inside is very quaint and quirky with a restaurant

Old, historic, and very atmospheric. Cheap to hire, and is between town and the racecourse. Great venue for a private party. Would need to organise own parking though.

I don’t think so, there are so many. Then it all depends on the individual, some experience the super natural better than others, who never experience anything.
