The local area
Described as a “regional treasure” by the Sunday Times, the first thing everyone notices about Chester is the history of the place – it is everywhere. As soon as you enter the famous city walls, you are immersed in the past: cobbled streets, the Roman amphitheatre, the medieval cathedral, Tudor and Victorian mock-Tudor buildings. Yet, this is also a truly modern, constantly developing city with all the amenities you would expect.
Some of the key things which make Chester such an attractive location are:
The quality of local schools is often a key factor when considering whether to move to an area and, in this respect, Chester is one of the most desirable places in the country. There are a number of Outstanding primary schools in the city, while most of the others are Good. For older children, there is a choice of excellent options such as Christleton, Bishops’ and Upton-by-Chester, which provide fantastic education in a range of environments, depending on what you feel is most suitable for your children. The neighbouring Council, Wirral, has grammar schools, which allow children living in Chester to take the 11+ exam and apply, if that is of interest to you.
Chester is also popular because of the range and quality of the transport options which the city enjoys. With travel times less than an hour to Manchester or Liverpool by road or rail, only 45 minutes to Manchester or Liverpool airport and only 2 hours on the train to London, living in Chester means that you can quickly and easily access anywhere in the North West and beyond.
While it may be easy to travel away from Chester, there is no reason you would want to. The city is one of the best, and most interesting, places to shop in the country. You can find all the usual big-name shops, of course, but the city has developed a justifiable reputation as a dream location for those looking for a more eclectic, independent shopping experience. The famous “Rows”, Chester’s unique two-tier arcades, and the ancient beams in so many of the city’s shops, make shopping in Chester a memorable experience, whatever your budget.
Eating out in Chester also offers a wide variety of options to suit all tastes and budgets. The Chester Grosvenor offers Michelin-starred luxury from Simon Radley, and the AA award-winning Sticky Walnut provides a modern, top quality take on local bistro dining. Casual dining options abound, including Joseph Benjamin, the Burger Shed 41 and the Yard, while Blackstocks is reinventing the traditional fish and chip shop.
The centre of Chester’s cultural scene is the Storyhouse, the multi award-winning reconstruction of the original art deco Odeon cinema. The original cinema has been lovingly restored to include a library, two state of the art theatres, a cinema, restaurant and two bars. Chester residents can now enjoy the latest film releases, internationally acclaimed ballet and opera performances and first-class theatre shows.
Chester is also home to two truly iconic national treasures: Chester races and Chester Zoo. Throughout race season there are numerous dates for your diary at the racecourse, while the zoo offers a fabulous family-friendly day out throughout the year.
There is also a huge range of things to do in the city centre, including the unmissable Chester Cathedral, city walls and Grosvenor Park, including the wonderful miniature railway.
If you’re interested in getting outdoors, the city sits on the River Dee, so both walking and boating tours are available, and is also on the doorstep of the beautiful North Wales countryside, including the wonderful Snowdonia national park.
Local house price trends
The average house price in Chester in June 2020 was £246,026, according to Zoopla estimates. The majority of property sales in Chester over the last year were semi-detached homes, selling for £239,436 on average, while terraced houses sold for an average of just under £200,000. Detached properties in Chester command an average of £362,617, although many homes are valued far higher than that, especially in areas such as Handbridge/Queen’s Park and Curzon Park/Hough Green; we have acted on recent sales involving sums over £650,000, while there are large detached properties and townhouses in the city which are valued at over £1 million.
