Stunning architecture and extremely well run by I assume volunteers. Free to get in but, well worth a donation just to help with the upkeep. Free organ recital on a Wednesday. Shop and Refreshments. One of the lesser known attractions of Chester.

There is also a large selection of bargain-priced second-hand books as well as... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life then this is a good place to go. An interesting church and refreshments are available.

I always enjoy my visits here. There are so many interesting things to see. I would suggest that the lawn on the river Dee side is the best place in Chester to see and photograph squirrels. That apart, there are many interesting features both inside and out (see photographs) and a generous cup of tea is, at the time of... More

You step back in time when you walk through the doors, could spend the whole day inside. They do ask for a donation of around £3 but its worth it to know you're helping keep it open for future generations.
