PostHeaderIcon The Rows

Chester's Rows are a unique feature of the city centre. Their origin is hotly disputed but a substantial part of what was once a more extensive doubled layered medieval shopping district survives. Some of it substantially remodelled during the 19th century Gothic architectural period.

There are some fine Georgian buildings and beneath it all architecture that has it's origins in the Roman and Medieval periods.
