Fodor's Expert Review Chester Rows

Chester Building/Architectural Site
Free

Chester’s unique Rows, which originated in the 12th and 13th centuries, are essentially double rows of stores, one at street level and the other on the second floor with galleries overlooking the street. The Rows line the junction of the four streets in the old town. They have medieval crypts below them, and some reveal Roman foundations. You can view some of these Roman foundations in the basement of fast-food restaurant Spudulike at 39 Bridge Street.
