NOTE: There are two versions of this walk. This one is for use when Chester Races are NOT running (see http://www.chester-races.co.uk to find out the date of fixtures) as it includes the section of the riverside promenade that is closed to the public during racing. A circular walk from the Architect in Chester, Cheshire. The Architect is a classic pub restaurant within Chester's city walls overlooking the racecourse at Roodee. The walking route has real variety with something for everyone: the bustling city streets, quiet suburban residential lanes, modern commercial estates, a section of the ancient city walls and very long peaceful stretches of paths alongside the River Dee. The walk is relatively flat and follows mostly well-made surfaces. There are just a couple of short stretches which follow grass bank paths which can get a bit muddy after rain and in winter. There are no stiles or gates on route, just a few flights of steps and staggered barriers. You will be sharing the riverside paths with cyclists so take care with children and dogs. Approximate time 2.5 to 3 hours.

Pleasant Sunday walk (Kim's cafe wasn't open unfortunately). Nice pint at The Architect. Pete&Alicia
