Benjamin Franklin had a good point when he said beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy, and Chester is full of places to worship a pint with some of the best traditional pubs in the city centre. Try The Boot, a cavernous drinking den at the end of Dark Row and reputedly the oldest pub in the city dating back to 1643.
After dark, the city's young and lively crowd head into the centre to party. Just pick any roads which come out from The Cross area; you'll find that they house some of the best live music venues. They also have some of the top trendy bars, sports bars and comedy clubs, catering for every taste. Most nightclubs sit on or just off Watergate Street and Eastgate Street and you'll find everything including hip hop, house and R&B to indie, rock and jazz, depending on where you choose.
Put on your wetsuits and you could soon be experiencing some of the country's best white water rafting on offer!
Visit Chesterís renowned racecourse for a spot of gambling on the horses.
Itís great for a spot of lunch during the day and by night it turns into a jazz and comedy venue offering fantastic live entertainment.
If so then watch out for the Town Crier on Saturday as he'll only make things worse with all his shouting.
