Transport Problems  (3 Answers)

Has anyone else experienced problems in Chester when using a national concession travel card on the local buses?
We used the No.1 service that runs between Chester and Wrexham and had our cards refused twice by the drivers. Our cards were issued by our own local city council and clearly state what they are. Before anyone asks, yes we were in England for the whole of the journey.

Two days  (15 Answers)

We are thinking of doing a self-drive holiday in UK - never having been there before, but with limited time I was thinking of the following, obviously with stops along the way for sightseeing.

Day 1 (6.50 am arrival .....) London
Day 2London
Day 3 Drive to Bath
Day 4 Drive to Chester
Day 5 Drive through Wales, back to Chester
Day 6 Drive to York
Day 7 Drive to Nottingham
Day 8 Drive to Warwick
Day 9 Drive to Oxford
Day 10 Drive back to Heathrow (early start day 11)

Is it better to spend the two days in Chester with day trips out or would I be better allocating the time elsewhere? Not much interest in the Lakeland District as we are more interested in the history than the scenery.

Also, my husband will be working and we will need wifi access everywhere. Looking at B&B's, but want wifi, private facilities in all places. Am I too hopeful?

Any help gratefully accepted

Best of Chester, England  (13 Answers)

I'd like to know the best things for us to see during a short trip to Chester. Are there any must-see National Trust places, museums etc.? Also, if someone could recommend a terrific restaurant in the city itself for dinner, that would also be welcome.

Very nice hotel or B&B?  (3 Answers)

We're thinking of a little trip to explore Chester. If you know of a very nice hotel or B&B (preferably not far from the city centre), I'd love a few names.
We wouldn't want to spend more than £90 or so a night if possible.

Thanks in advance.
