Places To Visit in Chester

Chester is one of Britain's great heritage cities, just waiting to be discovered!

A city full of historic treasures you must see. The city is home to the most complete City Walls in Britian dating from the Roman occupation 2,000 years ago built to protect the city. Today you can take the 2 mile walk of the walls and admire the beautiful heritage of Chester.

The unique 700 year old Rows are home to both independent and high street names taking shopping therapy a whole new level.

The city is home to the oldest still in use racecourse in the country - The Roodee - once the site of a massive Roman harbour, now a glamarous venue that plays home to a thriving horse racing and international polo season year on year.

The Roman Amphitheatre where 7,000 spectactors once enjoyed circuses, festivals and gladiator fights has been brought to life and now hosts Family Saturdays throughout the Summer for all the family to enjoy.

The 1,000 year old Chester Cathedral is free to enter, hosts  regular musical events and exhibitions. Scale the Cathedral at Heights Tour and go behind the scenes.

The Eastgate Clock - one of the most photographed in the world - built to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 and restored in summer 2015 stands proudly in the Chester city centre.

Chester’s magical mix of heritage, shopping and restaurants make the city the perfect place to visit around the clock.

There is a wealth of things to see and do in this extraordinary city with Chester Zoo, the perfect day out for animal lovers and garden fans, a host of museums, a 1000 year old cathedral, sensational shopping, guided walks and tours and more to enjoy.

Come and feel the thrill of the race or kick back and relax whilst cruising down the river.

Shouting out the whole list of attractions and things to do in Chester would tire even the Town Crier.
