Picture skew city in the Northwest of England and capital of the county of Cheshire. Renowned for 'The Rows' which are double-decker shops, Chester is an ancient garrison city and it thus rich with all things Roman. The walls are well worth walking - even if its just to get a Roman legionnaire's perspective of doing stag.
There's a huge supply of pubs, a race course, great restaurants, and it's generally a fun place to be.
If you get there, check out the Albion on Park Street (it's just inside the city walls above the river Dee), it's a Victorian street corner pub with a slightly deranged - sorry eccentric - landlord, decent beer and excellent food. There's no jukebox.
