The Chester Rows 

Made In Northwich teamed up with Visit Chester & Cheshire to check out The Chester Rows using their brand-new audio guide and map. Having decided to turn it into a full Christmas shopping trip me and Mum jumped on the train from Northwich that took us straight into Chester City Centre in about 30 minutes!

For those of you who may not know what The Chester Rows are, they are the covered galleries that line the first-floor level on Eastgate, Watergate and Bridge Street with part of Northgate Street. They are packed with various types of businesses including cafes, pubs, restaurants and tonnes of independent shops!  

Start the tour... 

We began by picking up an information booklet from The Visitor Centre located in The Town Hall on Northgate Street. (This will help you decide on a route and also has other key information about Chester itself).

The Rows are the perfect place to watch the hustle and bustle of Chester and its shoppers. The audio guide talks you through the various streets and tells you what they were once known for. We started on Watergate Street and began on the lower level to get a proper look at the architecture and style of these incredible buildings.  

We had also had some excellent Pizza at Stile Napoletano which is located on this street!  

Listen and learn... 

For someone who struggles to follow maps, the audio guide was the perfect accompaniment. It meant I could walk, look and learn with ease. It was fascinating to find out what each row used to be known for and what used to be there years before. Click here to find out more about the audio guide.  

You will be surprised at just how much is available on The Rows when you take your time to look closely. The map means you can ensure nothing is missed!  

We spent almost 6 hours soaking up the history, finding hidden treasures, shopping in quirky shops and enjoying some incredible food and drinks. Not to mention it was the perfect place to shelter from the rain!
