Chester

The historic city of Chester, located on the border of Wales, is one of the few English cities to have preserved its medieval walls. Founded as a Roman fortress 2,000 years ago, you will see some parts of the red sandstone fortifications that have survived to this day, when walking around the centre. Other heritage attractions in Chester include the medieval cathedral, which has been attracting locals and tourists since 1541, and the town hall, making the city an excellent destination for a cultural trip or a weekend break away. Pass under the arch that stands on the site of the original entrance to the Roman fortress. The Eastgate and Eastgate Clock was added to the gateway to celebrate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee and is said to be the most photographed clock in England after London’s Big Ben. Finish your walk at Chester’s Roman Amphitheatre, the largest in Britain; used for entertainment and military training during the Roman period. For those interested in more recent history, the Grosvenor Museum is a must. The Grade II listed building is home to the Period House, which documents rooms from the 17th century to the 1920s using artifacts from the respective periods. Even if you are in Cheshire on business, there are many things that you can explore when based at one of our two hotels in Chester. Take some time off to visit the Blue Planet Aquarium, or head out to Chester Zoo – home to more than 20,000 animals and 500 species.
