An ancient, picturesque town with many excellent examples of black and white architecture, some of it medieval, as are parts of Chester Castle.

 

 

Also boasting Britain’s most complete city wall, which can be walked on a 3 kilometre circuit, encompassing several historic bridges and towers, Churches, former monastic buildings, and a fine cathedral show the importance of religion to the history of this part of England.

 

Chester travel

 

The cathedral dates back to the Norman days, and parts of the city are even older, dating from Roman times. An amphitheatre just outside the walls is the crowning glory of this section of Chester’s long and historical past. The River Dee and Shropshire Union Canal offer cruises from The Groves, which allow the visitor to catch the atmosphere of the city from the water, whilst plays and festivals staged in the summer capture the spirit of the city’s historic and artistic legacy. As an alternative to the historical theme, the city offers Chester Zoo, a fine example of this type of attraction, whilst a golf course, rowing clubs and a nationally renowned racecourse are included in the wide variety of sporting activities through which the tourist can mix with the friendly local people.
