How to make the most of Chester when you celebrate your graduation

Congratulations on your graduation! After all those years of hard work you – and everyone you’re sharing the day with – definitely deserve to celebrate.

Let us take the strain and help you plan some fun things to do so you can celebrate in style.

Enjoy some top-notch eats and drinks from your favourite restaurant or pub

Assuming someone from your party is paying, now’s your chance to tap into their generous budget and splurge on some great food and drink. Toast your success with a glass of fizz or whatever takes your fancy.

We’ve already put together a round-up of some great places to eat and drink, right here.

Porta wine and tapas bar

It’s best to book a restaurant before you go, but there are a few places that are walk-in only: Try Porta, the wine and tapas bar on Northgate Street (above).

Relax and unwind with a parent-pleasing Afternoon Tea

If you’d rather have finger sandwiches and a cream cake washed down with a nice cup of tea (or bubbly) then you need to book yourself an Afternoon Tea. We’ve already rounded up some great places to visit so you don’t have to.

If you can’t wait for lunch, then book yourself some brunch

Lots of people love a good brunch, because it’s basically the very best of breakfast and lunch, right? And no-one will bat an eyelid if you have some alcohol with your eggs.

Here’s a great selection of where to eat brunch in Chester. 

Go shopping (and get someone else to pay for it)

If you still haven’t asked for a graduation present then now’s your chance.

There are some brilliant independent shops in Chester city centre, so you can shop knowing you’re getting something a little bit different and extra special to remind yourself of your academic achievements.

Maybe you’re after a keepsake, like jewellery, art, glassware, vinyl or even a model train set?

You can see Chester’s range of jewellers here and there’s a great round-up, here, of where to buy some artwork.

Or, for something a little different, how about these:

However you decide to celebrate, have a great time –  and once again, CONGRATULATIONS!
