A walk around the walls is not to be missed. The sights from some points are great. The part of the wall that passes over the famous clock' in the city center has is especially rewarding.

The walls of Chester are wonderful to walk. There are signs all the way round it telling all about what happened in old Chester and where they happened. One bit takes you down to the kind of waterfront which is a must see.

The walk along the wall was lovely and quiet a stroll through time! Be warned though, parts of the wall, when wet are EXTREMELY slippy!

By all means take a walk around the wonderful Chester City Walls. There are views of the Cathedral, Dee River, racetrack, Eastgate Clock and all the historic buildings and architecture. Imagine the thousands who built the wall and defended the city. The Cathedral is worth a visit, as well.

Each time we visit Chester, we always make sure we walk along here. I enjoy it most during sunset, as the surroundings look even more beautiful. Situated in the city, you are able to see many of the busier areas from a distance, as well as the gorgeous River Dee. You are guaranteed to enjoy it here, as there are... More

When in Chester, you must walk the walls. They are incredible and very scenic, seeing views of all of the city. It gives a good feeling being there knowing they were built so many years ago. It is a definite must when visiting this nice place. You can spend as little time or as long as you would like walking... More

Brilliant evening stroll around the walls of a wonderful city. Enjoy seeing all the different aspects of City life through the centuries as well as spectacular views of River Dee. You can take a guided walk during the day but so much fun finding things out for yourself as well.
