Chester has been offering retail therapy to visitors since its developed as a bustling market town in the Middle Ages.
It’s also not surprising that the oldest shopping façade in England is in The Rows!
Shoemakers and Iron Mongers once sold their wares in these magnificent 700 year old medieval marvels, when fruit, root and herb markets were all the rage and horse, cloth and cheese fairs flourished in the city.
The Rows are really avant-garde with their double-deck delights and entice you into more undercover shopping at The Forumand Market next to the Victorian Town Hall and the Grosvenor Shopping Centre, where you’ll find a host of famous high-street fashion, jewellery and accessory stores.
It’s not just your usual list of retail who’s who in Chester either. The city is home to a host of outlets t that you just won’t find elsewhere.
You’ll find distinctively different stores in the upper galleries of The Rows especially in Watergate Street and Bridge Street as well as hidden gems just off the main thoroughfares like Commonhall Street, and Godstall Lane.
