Chester Travel Guide

Chester is held in high regard in the United Kingdom as being home to one of the country’s prettiest town centers. The town possesses a diverse range of architecture as a result of the various eras it has survived through. Once a Roman fortress town, Chester is still surrounded by red sandstone Roman walls. Many of its buildings are Victorian and Tudor, making Chester one of the most photogenic spots in North England.

The ancient walls and an old Roman amphitheater are among the town’s biggest tourist attractions. At the latter, travelers can sit in the 7,000 seat theater and imagine they are watching a gladiator match. During the summer, shows and musical performances are still held here. Chester Cathedral is also worth a visit and free to explore. The structure dates all the way back to the 12th century.
