Is there more to shopping in Chester than just brand-name stores?

It's quite easy to miss shops in Chester as due to the historic buildings they have two levels. Your eye is naturally drawn to the lower level shops causing you to almost ignore the upper levels. There is more than brand names here, Chester hasn't quite become the typical magnolia, homogenised, brain numbingly boring town centre that plague our lands. But if you absolutely can't live without a Costa Coffee or a River Island then Chester does have it.

Chester was founded in Roman times and is the only place in England where you can walk around the complete Roman city walls, including going over a number of old city gates. The Rows in the centre of the city are unique mediaeval shopping streets on two levels and also have distinctive black and white fronts. With an old cathedral and plenty of other nooks and crannies to explore, it really is a beautiful city.

Didn't like that most of the animals could only be viewed behind glass. The red ape viewing gallery was very claustrophobic and unnecessary. Confusing layout even with the map.
