The Rows. Unique to Chester, these half-timbered galleries make up a second row of shops along some of Chester's most popular streets. There's no where else in the world built this way, so they're not only a fabulous place to shop but they're another historic landmark to tick off on your list.
Nicholas & co. This independent boutique does a little bit of everything. While some of it isn't quite to our taste, we've spied many a gorgeous antique in its vintage section so always make time to stop off when we're in the area.
Penhaligon's. Founded back in 1870, Penhaligon's is one of the truest perfume houses that blends its own exclusive scents here in England. You can find them dotted around the country but its Chester store is one of our favourite settings.
Castle Galleries. This is such a warm and inviting place to explore original and limited edition fine art from some of the country's most talented artists.
Harriet & Dee. A sweet, family-run business that is full of all sorts from the elegant to the unusual.
