Chester is such a unique city that even walking through it’s cobbled streets surrounded by the walls of an ancient Roman fortress can feel like stepping into a living breathing museum and the actual museums take you deeper into that incredible history along with many other wonderful and diverse exhibitions throughout the year.  

Taking time to wander around museums and galleries is such a relaxing and inspiring thing to do and when it comes to browsing the art and design galleries of the city there is a fantastic selection especially down Watergate Street from the highly contemporary to traditional styles – this city has it all.
