Just as attractive as the main shopping area of Chester with its quint buildings and cobbled street, this area benefits from having reasonable selection of independent and different types of shops. Certainly worth a slow wander.

I love Watergate Street. It's so Chester. Quaint, cobbled, atmospheric, olde worlde, black and white ancient buildings, sandstone arches, old established businesses, modern art shops, and much more. Enjoy your visit!
