Chester is the fifth "prettiest" city in Europe, according to an American newspaper.

USA Today asked its readers to vote for the continent's most attractive destinations.

The result says the North West city is more attractive than both Venice and Prague.

The paper says of Chester: "Roman walls surround a charming collection of Tudor and Victorian buildings, and a delightful shopping district filled with half-timbered shops. It's reminiscent of a Grimm tale."

Even Venice's Bridge of Sighs could not apparently top that.
