Lovely river walks

The river walks here are very special and be sure to see it all and the suspension bridge. Be sure to do it on a sunny day.

We looked for a boat trip as advertised in the city however could not locate.After a good walk in the park we went for a wander along the River Dee.The walk took us alongside and up to the pedestrian bridge passing several places to eat and drink. Highly relaxing and a beautiful wander...visited 18th feb 2017

Most visitors walk the relatively short distance along the river on the City side, which has significant attractions. However, I would recommend crossing over the pedestrian bridge and walking upriver.

The area where you can drive down park up and have a wander is very nice. Parking is limited though so you may need to park over in Handbridge and walk back across the suspension bridge. There are boat trips, a few cafes and plenty of ducks and swans to feed.

Clean river with a weir and lots of birds. Plenty of the tourist accommodation offers views over this. Nice to walk along in the evenings.
