Both prizes are from one of the oldest jewellery shops in the country – Lowe & Sons of Bridge Street Row, Chester. Carl Critchlow, CH1ChesterBID Manager, said: “Chester’s Valentine’s trail takes visitors and residents through romantic places, starting at the ‘Romeo and Juliet-style’ balcony at the entrance to Chester’s magnificent neo-Gothic Town Hall and ending at the City’s iconic and romantic Eastgate Clock.

“The trail takes in imaginative and stylish places to eat ranging from Mad Hatter’s Tea Shop on Bridge Street Row to places like Northgate Street’s Sweet Elements Patisserie – a great place to get ‘sweets for your sweet’.“Godstall Lane, a hidden Medieval gem, known as the Chester’s ‘Romantic Heart’ features on the tour, as well as some of Chester’s well-known independent jewellers.

“The Cathedral at Heights tour, offers visitors the chance to find ‘higher love’ looking at the magnificent view from the top of the tower that takes in five counties as well as offering visitors the chance of exploring hidden spaces and high galleries within the Cathedral. An art gallery and great places to find cocktails also feature in this special Valentine’s trail.”Throughout Valentine’s week, the CH1ChesterBID City Hosts, Monica Roman and Luka Morrell will be on hand to help new-to-the-city visitors navigate their way round Britain’s ‘City of Love’.
