Chester Cathedral is a must-see for every visitor to the city of Chester. This incredible structure, founded in 1092 as a Benedictine Abbey, was subsequently rebuilt around 1250 and took 275 years to transform the building into the stunning Gothic-style building we see today.
Chester Cathedral has the most complete set of monastic buildings in the country, which includes a Georgian square and series of streets, the remains of Roman barracks on the Dean’s field and the largest open green spaces within the walls, which is loved by both locals and visitors alike.
Chester Cathedral is a fully functioning church with over 20 regular services taking place every week, ensuring that the Cathedral is a vibrant hub for the Chester community.
There is something happening every day at the Cathedral, so whether you are visiting the latest exhibition, taking the Cathedral at Height Tour or visiting the gardens, there really is something for every member of the family at Chester Cathedral.
