NOTE: There are two versions of this walk. This one is for use when Chester Races are NOT running (see 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
