Well the uni is pretty much town centre anyway and if I need to travel between campus's we have free transport.

Any nice cultural parts like museums and parks?

And Mercedes voice is rough sounds like she always has a sore throat.

I work there - it's as boring a place as you could ever have the misfortune to go to!

It's referred to as a city - yes it has a cathedral, but that's probably where the city part ends. It has lots of pubs, unfortunately they're usually full of wannabe louts believing that they're well off and a bit posh - Chester is a magnet for the chavs of the North West - in fact, they should rename it Chavster.

It has shops, but you can probably walk around them all in about an hour - nothing of any real interest - there is the Grosvenor Mall - 50 or so shops including Burtons, Top Man, River Island, George, 02, Vodafone, 3, T Mobile and Ann Summers.

oooh and it's shrouded in Roman history - yes there's the walls that you can walk around..... and the (derelict) collosseum - part excavated and left to look like a building site gone bust.

There are some nice places to eat - some not at all pretentious, and there's 3 McDonalds.

It's a nice place to visit for the day, but the novelty (very) soon wears off.

Don't know about the University - but given the choice, i'd go to Liverpool.


Jayhab - Chester Tourist Information Centre.

p.s. Aside from them shooting some location shots every 3-4 months - you won't see any Hollyoaks girls in Chester! (I think the majority of it is actually shot in Liverpool?)

holyoaks is filmed in childwall liverpool so doubt you'll see many of them about!
#20
You do see some of the hollyoaks people in Chester, out shopping, but you see them in Liverpool as well.

Chester is quite nice, not many nightclubs, but theres busses and trains to Liverpool, and a taxi from liverpool or Birkenhead to Chester is about £30-£40, not too bad if there are a few of you.

I live there, and I like it a lot. There are lots of 'cultural' things to do (if that's your bag), but as it's only a small city you can't really expect big art galleries etc. Having said that, Liverpool's only a short hop away on the train, and you've got lots more art galleries, museums etc there.

Yes, there are all the 'usual' shops, but what city doesn't have them? But there are also small, one off places, like Rufus Court with it's small shops, Alexanders Jazz Bar, and lots of nice small restaurants that do student specials - like Chez Jules.

So IMO there's all the shopping you could want, a good amount of culture for a small city (but no theatre at the moment), all the history you can shake a stick at from Roman to present day, great eating, and some great pubs for crawling round. The Uni students always seem to have a good time - I used to live in that area and it's now got a 'modern' vibe.

Anything specific else that you want to know?

Very quaint. Old style houses. Nice centre. Has a zoo.
