Living and Working in Chester
Chester is the county town of Cheshire, England with a
population of approximately 120,000. Positioned on the River Dee,
on the border with Wales, Chester is a beautifully preserved city
with an array of periodic buildings and features that remind locals
and visitors of its medieval and historical heritage.
Chester is a thriving city with many attractions for people of
all ages and interests. From its traditional markets and historical
buildings, to its trendy bars and boutique shops, there is
something to keep everyone entertained.
The city is an extremely popular attraction for shoppers. The
'Rows' - which is basically two levels of shops - date back to
medieval times. There are also numerous chain stores in the city
centre, in the retail parks and in the two indoor shopping centres.
If that isn't enough shops, the city also boasts a department store
- Browns of Chester - in addition to an indoor market.

In the highly unlikely event that the attractions and facilities
of Chester aren't enough to excite you, you will also be pleased to
know that it is less than 30 miles away from the city of Liverpool
(European Capital of Culture 2008), as well as other regions in the
North-west of England, such as Wirral and Manchester. In addition,
as Chester is located near to the Welsh border, it is only a short
distance away from the many picturesque tourist spots in North
Wales - perfect for a break.
Rail links are extremely regular from all areas, and due to the
fact that the Countess is positioned directly opposite the local
station - Bache (on the Wirral line) - it is easily accessible to
and from any locations across the UK.
