On weekends, walk from your student accommodation to the city centre. Discover Chester Cathedral’s magnificent stained glass windows and breathtaking 11th Century architecture, before touring the length of the city walls. Stop along the way to admire views of famous landmarks including the Roman Amphitheatre and Eastgate Clock, then spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the cafés and boutiques of the city’s Tudor-style Chester Rows. In the evening, meet your friends at Telford’s Warehouse – a canalside bar and music venue whose stage has hosted everyone from Robert Plant to Coldplay.
At Northgate Point, walk 15 minutes to the University of Chester’s Parkgate Road Campus, or use the local buses to reach the other campuses in under 20 minutes. Wake up in your furnished studio, stretch out in your comfy double bed, then wander over to the wardrobe to find something to wear. Collect your books from the desk, then walk 10 minutes to stop at friendly coffeeshop Marmalade for breakfast. On weekends, use the bus stop up the street to get around town, or walk 10 minutes to Chester Station.
In the afternoon, stop on your way through the 24-hour reception for a quick catch up with friends. When you get to your room, kick back on the sofa in the separate living area and use the free Wi-Fi to upload your latest photos to Instagram. Tune in to your flatscreen TV, or take a moment to tidy up using the vacuum cleaner. Whether you’re studying, relaxing or taking care of the housework, the included contents insurance offers you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your belongings are safe.
When you feel like a workout, walk six minutes up the road to the swimming pool at Northgate Arena Leisure Centre. Afterwards, make the most of your all-inclusive utilities by taking your time in the shower, then step out of your ensuite bathroom for the 10-minute stroll to your nearest Tesco Superstore. Stock up on the ingredients you need to cook dinner in your kitchenette, or celebrate a special occasion with a seasonal feast at award-winning restaurant Joseph Benjamin.
