|Beginn||Fr., 04.06.2021, 14:30 - 17:30 Uhr|
Chester, once a Roman town and now a Cathedral city, is picturesque and much-loved by visitors, though relatively small, with just over 100 000 inhabitants. It lies on the River Dee; one can walk the whole course of its city walls. Visitors are fascinated by the "Rows", a covered walkway along an upper-level of shops unique to Chester. But how has the small city in Northwest England adapted to modern life? What is life in Chester like today?
Cheshire as a county is less well-known, but with much of interest to offer, starting with Cheshire Cheese and the Cheshire Cat. Cheshire has distinctive types of architecture. There is the typical black-and-white timber architecture, which was much copied in Victorian times. The local red sandstone is also very characteristic and can be admired in Chester's cathedral. We will explore the towns of Knutsford, Nantwich, some castles, the salt industry and the canals.
