Hobbies and Interests
I am a keen local historian in Chester and I'm happy to provide guided walks around the area. I also enjoy cycling, board games, quizzes and creative writing. I attend a weekly pub quiz with friends, which you are welcome to come along to. I am a member of the National Trust and Chester Zoo.
I have two spacious bedrooms for student use. They are quiet and private. There is wardrobe and cupboard space and access to a desk, laptop and printer. There are lovely views across the Chester skyline and to Welsh hills beyond.
Excursions and Local Attractions
Excursions and local attractions include the picturesque and historic Chester city centre; Chester Zoo - the largest in the UK; North Wales with its magnificent castles, coastline and countryside; great cities such as Liverpool and Manchester with all the history and culture they have to offer; and the beautiful English Lake District. Even London with its world-renowned attractions is only two hours away by train.
