Which do you prefer, the city or the countryside? Well, at Chester you can have both, for the River Dee marks the division between this beautiful medieval city and some quiet woods and meadows. With the bridges and town reflected in its surface you can stroll beside the River Dee while, across the water, shoppers and tourists hurry along the busy streets. And if its raining when you arrive, there's always the shops as consolation.
