Chester itself is a lovely place to spend time. We didn’t realise there was horse racing on this weekend, so it was a little bit busier than expected. It was really nice to be able to retreat to the quiet of Baker’s Cottage though, it seemed like a really nice area and only a short walk into the town centre. If you’re not in Chester for a specific event, and you want to avoid crowds, maybe avoid weekends when there is horse racing. Although it wasn’t that bad at all, just a bit busier than usual.
