With a number of medieval buildings, Chester is a brilliant place to visit for those who enjoy soaking up the history and culture of our ancestors. Hop on and off and see all it has to offer!
Your City Sightseeing open-top bus journey begins at Chester Railway Station, and from here you’ll head towards Vicars Lane on its way to The Groves. This is a great place to hop off and take a stroll, with wonderful views to take in. Don't miss Castle Drive and Lower Bridge Street at bus stops 5 & 8, by the dreamy river Dee. Castle Drive is a great place to walk alongside the University of Chester and embrace both historic and natural beauty, with plenty of grass and trees, and check out the old castle structure.
The bus passes Handbridge at stop 7 on the way to Grosvenor Street, before reaching the Old Port area. This is where in earlier centuries when the River Dee was a far mightier waterway than it is today, large ships used to discharge their cargoes for the City of Chester. The route passes Princess Street (only from Monday to Saturday) 11, and on Sundays, it passes through St Werburgh Street at the 13th bus stop. Enjoy the views of the spectacular Cathedral before the bus loops back to the railway station.
