new years questions

So I was thibking about visiting chester for 3 nights over new years. A very broad question but what is the area like at this time of year??? Is there a fireworks display on ny eve? Are there any markets still open??? Any special events happening at this time?? Ive chose chester as im looking for something a little quieter for new year than a big city party. Any info would be great thanx

The racecourse is where most events are happening at that time. There is a Winter Wonderland there until New Years Eve and they also have a New Years Eve Event/Concert. Look at their website for details.

www. chester-races.co.uk

Nothing has been said one way or the other about fireworks.

There are lots of things in the run up to Christmas- Victorian Christmas Market, Medieval Mid-Winter Watch Parade, Roman Saturnalia Festival but it does quieten down a lot by New Year

There will be guided walking tours every day, always excellent for getting a feel of the place. And ghost tours, of course........

I have never thought of staying at home for new year, so I will watch the replies.

I usually go to Blackpool, Leeds or the Lakes.

Contact the Mill Hotel for dinner cruises, no idea if there will be any over New Year... we are usually at home at that time but celebrate with friends rather than in town.

Post #4 is visiting Chester end of Sept, beginning Oct; so no point advising them on river cruises for the New Year!!!
