“One of a series of friendly trails written and illustrated during lockdown by the team here at the Visitor Information Centre to give you a warm welcome to our much-loved City of Chester”

For any Visitor to Chester who has time constraints, a lovely idea is a stroll down Bridge Street on to Lower Bridge Street and through the Bridgegate to view the River Dee. This route is not only charming, but it also answers many questions about the city's long history. For any Visitor without time constraints, lucky you! Whatever time you have, enjoy our short guide to Bridge Street. The Romans knew Bridge Street as Via Praetoria and it was one of the four original streets of the Roman fortress of Deva, leading to the Roman South Gate and a bridge across the river. It is now a feast for the eyes, a fascinating street filled with characterful shops and eating places, many of which spill outside providing alfresco dining while you take in the history around you. There are upper and lower sections for Bridge Street, each with a distinctive character and history that makes the street an interesting place to shop, eat and explore.
