A nice place to visit, remember to look up at all the lovely buildings. Also some nice shops to have a browse. We will go back again

So many people are missing out on fabulous shops by not climbing the steps up into the rows. For example: a fabulous cafe called Burlingtons and an interesting shop called Rainforest. It is also much calmer and sheltered from the elements.

Visited here as part of weekend trip. Enjoyable views and scenic. Very historic and easy to move round. Locals very welcoming and friendly especially the resident artist near the clock. Great signage so you could not get confused 😐

a nice way to spend a day wandering through the streets looking at the shops most of them are still occupied which makes a nice change

Loads of different shops set into the rows.. Places to eat and shop til you drop. Quirky and different. Definitely adds to the charm of Chester.

Hi Sarah, First of all, I apologise for not responding sooner; I have been away for a few days. It is my understanding that the rows are open between 10.30 and 17.00 on Sundays although some say they open at 11.00. Then on... More
