Chester's Rows

The City of Chester still has many buildings that date back to the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. A notable feature is the Tudor architecture that is typified by white plaster with black timbers, each storey projecting slightly over the one below.

A feature found nowhere else in England is the existence of passageways at first-floor level that run all the way along the streets that meet at the city centre – the roads follow the pattern laid down by the Romans around 2000 years ago. These passages are known as The Rows – they act as sheltered walkways on wet days as well as giving access to the shops on the higher level.

This is where we stayed

We spent two nights in a flat on Watergate Street - the dark window two floors above "The Standard" was one of ours.
