Luckily, I chose a nice sunny day to complete this wonderful walk along the elevated walkway of the Chester Roman Walls. The views of the city and the surrounding areas are very impressive and it is most certainly a great way of viewing the streets of Chester and everything that goes with it. Fantastic architecture all over with black and... More

Highly recommend you try walking round this as you get a great view of the city and doesn't take too long to do. I am on crutches and after you get up the initial steps it is a nice easy walk round

The foundations of the original Roman fort support the expansion of the walls throughout its history to encompass the Castle (Built in 1245 AD on the foundations of the original... More

Amazing! You can start off seeing some nondescript ancient stones, but then when you climb the walls and walk around the City, you see and experience the most amazing things. Many plaques and information boards definitely enhance the walk.
