The historic walled city of Chester has long been famous for its old medieval architecture. Although some of the famed black-and-white buildings were restored in the Victorian era, this work is subtle and does not affect the towns feel. The city has a great deal to offer and to the east of the city lies Chester Zoo, the largest zoo in Britain which is home to over 11,000 animals in 110 acres of award winning gardens. Alternatively, the Grosvenor Museum and art gallery makes for an interesting day out and it includes an exhibit of Roman tomb stones as the city was originally a Roman settlement founded in 79 AD. For 8 weeks of the year, the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre runs outdoor shows and is famous as it’s the only site-specific professional open-air theatre company outside London. With so much going on Chester is clearly a desirable place to live. Our users agree and in 2016 reallymoving.com and our local Chartered Surveyors have helped over 600 people relocate to Chester.
Chester’s black-and-white buildings and the rows give the city a unique feel but home buyers must be wary as old medieval and Victorian buildings use wood extensively as a building material. Although this is not a problem if a building has been well maintained, old buildings with inattentive landlords can suffer from a multitude of problems including wood boring insects, wood rotting fungi or rising damp. This is why reallymoving.com strongly recommends the services of our expert Chartered Surveyors as through a Building Survey they will be able to advise you extensively on damage your property may have suffered.
