This place is filled with such character and beauty. What is wonderful is when you visit restaurants or pubs and they have photograths showing the ROWS during the 18-19th century.

Very unique rows of shops along the rows level. Good range of small independents. Different from walking on ground level among the crowd.

Here you're up above the traffic and can just stroll along looking into all the shops - good selection there too. Also hair stylists, cafes etc.

The Rows need to be accessed by steps. More shops are at ground level, there are many mediaeval buildings interspersed, so there is lots of interest.

Much of the core of Chester was redone in the late 19th century in black and wide with wood beams showing on the exterior. It is the city's architectural trademark. Many of the building in the Rows have this style. Additionally, many shops, be it...More

Various shops, restaurants, and cafes. A person can better appreciate the architecture by understanding why the second floors are over the sidewalks.
