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.
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.
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?
Or, for something a little different, how about these:
- Chester Model Centre: 71-73 Bridge Street Row East, Grosvenor Shopping Centre, CH1 1NW
- UpNorth Records: 19 St Werburgh Street, CH1 2DY
- Cex Entertainment Exchange: 2a Mercia Square, 5 Frodsham Street, CH1 3JJ
- Pyramid Glass: 23 Werburgh Street, CH1 2DY
- London Camera Exchange: 9 Bridge Street Row, CH1 1 NW
However you decide to celebrate, have a great time – and once again, CONGRATULATIONS!
