The bus passes Vicars Lane on its way to The Groves. This is a great place to hop off and take a stroll, with wonderful views to take in. Don't miss Castle Drive and Lower Bridge Street at Bus Stops 5 & 8, by the dreamy river Dee. Castle Drive is a great place to walk alongside the University of Chester and embrace both historic and natural beauty, with plenty of grass and trees, and check out the old castle structure. The bus passes Handbridge at 9th Stop on the way to Grosvenor Street, before reaching the Old Port area.
This is where in earlier centuries, when the River Dee was a far mightier waterway than it is today, large ships used to discharge their cargoes for the City of Chester. The route passes Princess Street and Hunters Walk at stop 12, then St Werburgh Street and Foregate Street at the 13th and 14th Bus Stops. Enjoy the views of the spectacular Cathedral before the bus loops back to City Road.
