f you have found my Chester Virtual Stroll stimulating, you may also be interested in treating yourself to one of my real guided walks!
Right: these Masters architecture students from Birmingham City University, studying Chester for their dissertation, joined me to explore the city.
No fair weather guide I, for my walks take place all year round, are easily arranged, friendly, informal and very informative.
Tours take place at your own pace and at times to suit you and your party and you may choose to take your lunch / cofee / beer breaks as you see fit - a fine opportunity to some of Chester's historic hostelries!
"On behalf of the Historical Fellowship, we wish to thank you for the talk you gave us at the hotel, during which everyone learned a lot about Chester. Also, your walk around the alls was fascinating. We had a very enjoyable weeks' holiday in your lovely city".
Prior committments allowing, I'm happy to accept your booking at very short notice so don't hesitate to give me a ring when you're in town.
If you belong to an arts or photography society or club, you may be interested to know that I offer sketching and photographic guided walks intended just for you!
If you're a student, or otherwise newly resident in Chester, my walks are a fine opportunity to get to know your wonderful new home.
"Thank you for the informative and entertaining tour of Chester- the team enjoyed learning more about Chester and I have received some great feedback".

|"Hi Steve, I just wanted to thank you on behalf of the society for last night's evening of illumination and beer, everyone really enjoyed themselves and are thankfully looking forward to staying with the society. It was remarked on, on more than one occasion that virtually every building has a tale to tell, thanks for helping to broaden our knowledge of Chester. I will post the details of your web site to the society members. Hope to see you again".
