"There are loads of great pubs and drinking locations. The clubbing scene is ok but not my kind of thing."
"The restaurants and bars are varied and there are plenty to choose from. The nearest bowling alley is Cheshire Oaks or Broughton, which is a shame for such a good city. A cinema recently opened in the city centre and activities are often happening such as plays in the park, royal appearances at the cathedral and moonlight flicks showing popular movies near the river."
"The clubs here are rubbish, there are very good bars and pubs though. It never gets overly busy."
"There are not as many clubs as would be found in bigger cities (such as Liverpool or Manchester) but there are lots of nice pubs, bars and restaurants."


"It's expensive and needs more clubs in town."
"There's very limited nightlife but, if you like a small town and just a few bars and a club, then it's a great place for you. The SU bar is small but everyone goes there so it's always buzzing."
"There are various decent bars but no cinema or bowling alley or anything like that in Chester. The nearest are in Broughton or Cheshire Oaks."
"The town has many pubs, cocktail bars and clubs."
"The uni doesn't do enough in regards to offering organised trips to neighbouring cities."
"There is enough to do in town but most people go into Manchester or Liverpool for a proper night out."
"There are a couple of clubs and lots of bars. The town is not student-budget friendly though."
"We've got lots of bars, pubs and clubs. There's an amazing variety and all are within five minutes of each other."
"There's not a lot but the nightlife is sufficient. There are about three or four big places around."
"As it is a historic city, there's loads of sight seeing including the castle and the walls. The nightlife isn't great but the centre is nice to walk around in the day and there are loads of nice bars and pubs to visit."
