City Sightseeing Chester Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour

1. City Sightseeing Chester Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour

No city in Britain is richer in terms of archaeological and architectural treasures than Chester, the Walled City on the River Dee. The City Sightseeing Chester Open Top Bus Tour will introduce you to the City Walls, the Cathedral, Roman Amphitheatre and much, much more.

The bus crosses the Dee by both the Grosvenor and Old Dee Bridges and at The Groves provides a convenient connection with the river cruises operated by Bithell's Boats. The tour operates on a hop-on hop-off basis and your ticket is valid for 24 hours allowing you to stop off and visit any of the attractions on route.  Route • Chester Bus Interchange • Foregate Street - The Old Queen's Head • City Road - opposite the Premier Inn • Chester Railway Station - outside Town Crier Pub • St John the Baptist Church • The Groves • Pepper Street - Grosvenor Shopping Precinct • Grosvenor Street - Grosvenor Museum • Handbridge - St May's Church • Lower Bridge Street • Nicholas Street • Chester Racecourse - outside Holiday Inn Express

From Chester: Full-Day Guided North Wales Sightseeing Tour

2. From Chester: Full-Day Guided North Wales Sightseeing Tour

Leave the Roman city of Chester and travel to Wales on a 90-minute, fully-narrated journey arriving at Llandudno. Visit the 12th-century hidden chapel of St. Tudno on the Great Orme. Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed in 1283 with a fabulous 3/4-mile wall circuit. Go inside Conwy Castle, a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with Frenchman Richard The Engineer. Afterwards, head to Snowdonia National Park using carefully-selected, off-the-beaten-track routes with a stop at the so-called “capital of North Wales,” Betws-Y-Coed prayer house in the woods. Finally, take the unique opportunity to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford between 1795 and 1805. Prepare to be entertained and informed by your experienced guide and driver along the way.

Really good way to discover Chester. We've visited the city a couple of times before but still found out about things we didn't know. Cheap way of getting about all day if walking is a problem. We paid for 2 days and still enjoyed the very informative tour guide.
