The City of Chester is lucky to enjoy both a river and a canal running through the centre. Enjoy a walk along the canal and see the new Canal Quarter being developed in the city, there are bars and restaurants along the way and even a canal boat that serves lunch, afternoon tea or dinner as you cruise along the canal and through the lock gates, watch out for when you pass under the balcony of 4* Gold Wharton Lock Apartment.

The River Dee can be seen from the City Walls and there are nice walks and picnic areas along the banks of the river. In the summer months there is a river ferry to take you across to the other bank (details are in the apartment information file) so that you can enjoy a circular walk taking in both sides of the river. There are also boat rides along the river with commentary about the river and city. There is a band stand on the river bank and bars, cafe, restaurants and ice-cream shop to enjoy while you are there.
