Last weekend, when Gavin and I went to Stoke, we took Friday off of work so we could spend the day in Chester which is Gavin’s favorite town in the UK. It’s a really pretty town that was founded by the Romans and was meant to be the capital of Britannia until the Norman conquest (thanks Wikipedia!). It’s really pretty with Victorian-restored shopping galleries and (almost) fully complete medieval city walls. All along the high street there are 2 levels of shopping – the upper level is like a gallery that you get to by climbing some super steep stairs and the lower levels you descend into. They are really cool and are very crypt-like.
Basically, it’s a very romantic little town. Well, I guess “little” isn’t the word, but it is very pretty.
Some pictures you ask? But of course!
Apparently, that clock is the second most photographed clock in Britain, after Big Ben. I’m just doing my part to help it overtake Big Ben ;)
He was so happy to be in Chester and not at work!
After absolutely chucking it down the whole drive from Gavin’s parent’s house, we got out of the car to this.. it was a sign that we would have a lovely day.
And we did.
