The information presented on these Chester pages is based on the Chester City Centre Street Map and Guide
Chester is proud of the choice it can offer to the enthusiastic shopper, the city even celebrates with an annual shopping festival! As well as the popular chain stores Chester has a vast array of specialist shops, many of them clustered along the Rows. The Rows are continuous half-timbered galleries, reached by steps, which form a second row of shops above those at street level along Watergate Street, Northgate Street, Eastgate Street and Bridge Street. The Rows are unique in this country, and possibly in the world, and nobody is quite sure why they were built in this way. Some original 13th century buildings, including the Three Old Arches in Bridge Street, have survived the ravages of time, but most of these impressive facades are Victorian copies. Nevertheless, they are still magnificent and greatly contribute to the beauty and character of Chester. To find out more about the building and history of the Rows, visit Chester Heritage Centre.
