While I was in Chester and had my own personal tour around the city, my tour guide friend let me in on a little local gem; Chester’s very own Central Perk! I’m a big lover of Friends (along with most of the world) so I practically threw myself in the door and into one of the squishy sofas.
There’s something about the 90’s, early 00’s nostalgia that will always be comforting and funny. The Chester replica of Central Perk was just what we needed after the chilly morning and if I was ever a character of Friends (I was obviously Jenifer Aniston in a former life) I would probably have spent the majority of my time in there sipping a cappuccino too. I wouldn’t recommend having any deep, meaningful conversations in there though; the TV’s replaying old episodes were a massive distraction!
A nice cup of coffee was much needed after our brisk and chilly walk around the old Roman city walls (read: it’s ALWAYS needed). Although if I thought it was a bit frosty in Chester, then the wind in Liverpool nearly created an icicle out of me, but there’ll be more on that soon!
