Garden Quarter

Guide to Garden Quarter

Set on the doorstep of the Parkgate Road campus the Garden Quarter is at the heart of student life. Nicknamed ‘Student-ville’ the area has gained a reputation for being the ideal place to live whilst studying in Chester. The network of student streets centres around Garden Lane also offers a choice of pubs, a dry cleaners, hairdressers, barbers, takeaways and convenience stores. And there is always something happening on ‘The Lane’. The university is quite literally a stones throw away from this area, meaning you can grab that extra 10 minutes in Bed and still make it to your lecture on time – you might even get time to drop into the Students’ Union for a coffee on your way!

The Bouverie is a popular pub with a great beer garden for those sunny afternoons & Pete’s Café on Garden Lane serves a fry up to cure even the worst of hangovers – just ask any Chester student! Garden Lane not got what you need? No problem – Chester City Centre is only a five-minute walk away, no taxi needed.
