Lovely walks along the river and round the Walls.(Built 2,000 years ago by the Romans)
Chester is an historic City with lots of shops, and lots of places of interest. The Rows (shops on 2 levels over 700 years old), and many Tudor buildings.The largest stone amphitheatre in the U.K., built by the Romans about 1800 years ago. The Romans built a wall right round the city, this still stands, you can walk right round the city without stepping off the Walls. We also have a world famous Zoo, where the animals live , as nearly as possible ,in natural surroundings.
Liverpool (European City of Culture 2008) is 40 minutes away on the train, and Manchester 1 hour. North Wales is 10 km. Dublin is 3 hours away by train/ferry.
Retired Primary school teacher aged 59. I've always had itchy feet, but like my home comforts so house-swapping suits me. I do smoke (A bit) but I'm trying to give it up.
I may be on my own or with a friend. Long weekend exchanges in the UK would be good.
I like being near water, so somewhere near the sea, or a lake or river would be lovely.
