Chester Rows & Timber Framed Buildings
Visitors come from all over the UK and the world to visit Chester. Chester is one of the most beautiful historic cities in England, famous for its galleried rows, Roman remains, shops & boutiques, the town crier, ghost walks and complete city walls. Chester is remembered best by visitors for the black & white timbered buildings that are Tudor style. "It's like walking back in time through Old England".



Chester Roman Amphitheatre
The ruins of this unique Roman Amphitheatre in Chester are currently being excavated and new finds are being found all the time. To find out more about the Romans and Roman Chester you can visit Dewa Roman Museum or The Grosvenor Museum and also Guided Tours of Chester. The best time to see and talk to the archaeologists is in the summer when they are busy working on the amphitheatre dig. This was one of the largest Amphitheatres in the UK!

Chester Cathedral
Chester Cathedral is a Church of England cathedral built on Anglo-Saxon foundations dating back to the year 907. Since then it has gradually been extended and rebuilt three times, the most lasting design from 1250 being what we see today. For the first 530 years it was known as Saint Werburgh's Abbey after the remains of the Saint it housed. The Dissolution of the Monasteries saw it become a cathedral. It was thanks to the admiration of King Henry VIII that it has survived.

The Eastgate Clock
Today the Eastgate Clock is our city landmark which is a popular photo stop and features on many guides to the city. Erected on top of the stone archway over Eastgate Street in 1899. The Eastgate Clock was built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee of 1897.
The stone archway underneath the clock was built earlier in 1769 to replace an earlier Medieval gate which replaced an even earlier roman gate!



Complete City Walls
Chester has a complete stone wall surrounding the city which you can walk on and see views of the city you would not see at street level. See the Norman defences, Roman fortifications/walls, Chester Castle and the city gates. You can get on and off the walls at different points along the way.





The River Dee at Chester
The River Dee is very popular in the summer months where you can sit on the banks and listen to brass bands play in the old band stand, or take a leisurely cruise on the showboats, hire a rowing boat or motor boat, take a walk along the path on the banks to the Earls Eye, watch out for Cormorants or feed the Swans, buy a Cheshire ice cream, watch the river boats from the beer gardens. A great place to relax on Sunday afternoons!
