Chester, England

Back to sharing memories of our trip to England. Next stop – Chester!

We weren’t here long – only a few hours – but I’ve been here before and find this town so very precious with it’s black and white buildings – which it is somewhat known for. Chester is one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain. The wall dating back to medieval times.

Truly it is enchanting to see these restored “row” buildings and walk along the brick and cobblestone streets of the town center. Just as others have done for centuries.

Notice the “row” of walking porches along the second floor of these buildings.

St. Peter’s church (below) has building sections that date back to the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.

Though we didn’t tour inside on this trip, I had been in there on our last tour and I remember it being quite stunning (see below):

Are you wondering why this post is titled “Vegan Love in Chester”?

Well, it’s because we found this DELICIOUS milkshake cafe that made the richest, most scrumptious vegan milkshake I’ve ever had!

The place is called “Purely Wicked Milkshakes”!

A most perfect name for a place that makes a divine peanut butter VEGAN milkshake to die for!! I must thank Mimi for spotting the menu on their window and pointing out the vegan option!!!

I now will always remember Chester for these delicious concoctions!

Next stop Liverpool – and, of course, a Beatles tour!
