“The Walls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had a very pleasant walk around the walls, it was a lovely day, the only down side was they were repairing the walls in four places so we had to leave the wall at each point where they were working.As a failrly elderly but fit person I found the walk easy.

“40 minute walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

managed to complete all but a small section of the walls as a part was closed for renovation. Good views from most parts and you can see that a lot of work has been carried out over recent years.
A recommended activity if you are ever visiting Chester!

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We had a lovely walk along the walls, and there are lovely views if the weather is good. There are a few places when you have to avoid on-going renovations, but we didn't have a problem finding a way round.
