About Chester

When it comes to beautiful cities, Chester is one of the best and should be on every tourist’s ‘must see’ itinerary.

As soon as you arrive in Chester you will appreciate the city’s unique atmosphere and sense of history.

Founded by the Romans over 2000 years ago, much of the Roman influence remains and Chester’s city walls are the most complete in Britain. In every corner of the city you are confronted with history, from the Roman amphitheatre, to the medieval half-timbered buildings.

One of Chester’s most unique features is the two-tiered rows, which means you can shop whatever the weather and gives you a unique experience and double the shopping fun!
