Our Shrewsbury to Chester service runs throughout the day from 05.20 through to 23.00.

Taking approximately an hour, it’s a chance to relax, catch up with work via our free WiFi, or enjoy that latest book by your favourite author. The ancient, picturesque city of Chester, sitting inside its fortified protective walls, is one of the most popular destinations in the UK, with people enjoying the historical atmosphere of old Chester.

Live departures and arrivals

There are plenty of family friendly attractions, including Jodrell Bank, Britain’s latest Unesco World Heritage Site, the audiovisual dreamscape at Storyhouse, and the ever popular Chester Zoo, and if you’re seeking something more cultural, there’s a wide range of theatres showing an eclectic range of performances, from jazz, to comedy and beyond.

Shopping in Chester has been enjoyed since Medieval times, and the oldest two tiered ‘shopping centre’ exists here. The Rows have been offering undercover shopping for over 700 years in the half-timber Tudor buildings that line the old city roads. Alongside the big high street names, quaint and quirky boutiques tempt you with unique one-off pieces, handmade wares and artisan creations found nowhere else. 

After exploring the city of Chester, why not relax in one of the many award winning restaurants, soaking up the atmosphere, before catching a show, and with regular trains taking you back to Shrewsbury, there’s nothing stopping you enjoying a glass or two of wine with your meal. With our downloadable app, you can book tickets and check train timetables on the move, and our Twitter feed can keep you updated with any reports as they happen.
