The mosaics were stunning. We paid to listen to the organ recital and were not disappointed - half an hour of ethereal music in the heart of the historic Chester. The cloistered court yard was also very peaceful.

We informed us an hour before when the tour into the Tower starts and we were told the tour will start at 12:30 so we went there to 12:27. But the tourguide said, he just started the tour and we couldn't attend this one. So my recommondation for the manager is: Either you change the information sign that the tour... More

I am still in awe over the architecture that was handcrafted so many years ago and is still in pristine condition. The stained glass windows were absolutely beautiful. You can also take a tour up to the very top... More

Chester Cathedral is amazing, there is no other word for it and it is HUGE! It took us ages to walk all the way round and see everything it has to offer and I love being able to light a candle. We finished off with a coffee and cake in the café but that was more like hard work, we... More

This was worth the visit, lovely old cathedral. It is free to get in but they do ask for donations of at least £3 which is more than worth it.

Beauty and interest. The last time we visited there was an organ recital. There are many interesting nooks to explore and help if you have questions. A donation is up to the person. Nice coffee shop when you are tired
