Chester Tours

Chester
The town of Chester in northwest England was established by the Romans in 70AD making it one of the country's oldest towns. It is also one of England's best preserved walled towns with most of its walls still intact. Visitors can walk the ancient city walls to get a better view of the city as well as the largest Roman amphitheater in Britain and the beautiful architecture of the Chester Cathedral. Another historic part of town is the Rows, a series of Victorian half timbered buildings dating back to the 16th century which now hold shopping galleries. 

Chester also has the Chester Zoo and the gardens of Tatton. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and venues that host live music events throughout the town. Within the walls, the town is compact, making it easy to explore by foot and enjoy the charm and history. Not too far from Chester, visitors can explore old stately homes, medieval castles, and the mountains of North Wales. 

Practical Info

Chester is located 40 miles southwest of Manchester and can be reached using route M56. Alternatively, it is 27 miles south of Liverpool and can be reached from there using route M53. There are plenty of train options from both cities as well.
