The Chester Cheese shop has been recommended by Celebrity Chef Simon Rimmer on Simon is Chef and Presenter on BBC Twos Something for the weekend and has written a guide about Chester and how he highly recommends it as the ideal short break destination in the north west.


Chester is a truly great English city. The river, the shops, the Rows, the pubs and restaurants, the amazing amount of family activities; its a city for everyone to enjoy. It is bursting with history, architecture and archaeological structures, dating from the Roman occupation. Originally one of the great military bases in Roman England, it still has its fair share of Roman ruins.


Chester was has previously been voted one of the best shopping centres in the country thanks to its four main roads, Eastgate, Northgate, Watergate and Bridge. Here you can find a variety of shops including The Chester Cheese shop.


Simon writes Its been going for a quarter of a century and has more than 200 different cheeses available made from cow, goat and ewe milk. My restaurant buys all our cheese from the wholesale side of the business; their cheeses are amazing and Chester is lucky to have such an incredible shop.
