    Gorgeous
    They are a delightful aspect of strolling through the centre of the lovely city. Highly ornate buildings and shop fronts are admirable. Across around four of the main streets outlets at both street level and then higher up on the Rows are to be enjoyed.

    Historic Beauty.
    Such a beautiful place. The Chester Rows are just what makes Chester. Beautiful old buildings kept in remarkable condition. Walking around and seeing the history and beauty is so enjoyable. Sampled some nice food and pubs. Chester really is a beautiful town.

    Unique feature for a U.K. city
    There are a number of rows across Chester with some having unique shops but regardless a great way to keep out of the elements. A mix of stone and wooden with some historic buildings around although most are a reproduction dating from the early 1900s. Great to include as part of a city walk

    A beautiful city
    The cathedral, the city walls, the Rows and the river are what make Chester a beautiful city to visit. The Rows are unique and great to look at but also a good way of visiting the shops and avoiding the elements. Visit Chester and see the Rows, part of the city's roman heritage, fantastic.

Loved The Rows with unique little shops. A great place to spend a while looking in the shops and you stay dry when it rains as well.

Interesting raised walkway to the shops. Was told this was for the gentry in the old days to shop without getting their shoes dirty. Great views of the historic buildings.

The rows offered a really novel way to get around the city (especially on wetter days!) with a great selection of shops and a welcome sense of space not always found in other older shopping districts.
