The Chester Tour

About

Be enthralled by the tales and anecdotes of those who have contributed to the rich heritage of this much-loved city, beginning in Roman times, through the vibrant Medieval expansion period, the desperation of the Civil War, the Georgian elegance and the Victorian revival, right up to the present day.

Tours run daily at 10.30am and 2pm between Easter and October.

All tours depart throughout the year from the Town Hall Visitor Information Centre and are approximately 90 minutes in duration.

Max 25 people per tour.
