If the weather is good, take a walk around the city on the walks. Great views of the Roman gardens, racecourse and the cathedral, as well as plenty of opportunities to read the information or sit

You get a great view of the city wherever you choose to walk. You also see things that you may not have discovered had you been on the ground.

Chester's walls are nearly complete, missing only about 100m, so walking them is a great way to see the city. You just stop when you see something interesting and then return to carry on. You do need to be able to walk up some steps, so it is not really for wheelchair users. We used it as our way into exploring the historic city, so we took much longer than a straight circumnavigation.

A great introduction to an historic city!

A great early morning run around the wall. This is the best way to see the city, and is lovely and quiet early on. Highly recommended

Five of us went for a gentle stroll around the walls. It is not often that you can completely circumnavigate a city's walls. The weather was not great so we didn't stop to read the information boards. In wet weather the stone paths can be slippery, but they are negotiable. We will be back in better weather!

We took a self guided tour around the city walls and found them to be a really interesting introduction to the city and a way of understanding its layout. The 2 mile walk took us about an hour at an easy pace and there were lots of photo opportunities. Would definitely recommend this at part of any visit to Chester

This wonderful walk around the city gives you an amazing other perspective view of Chester. It can be done at any pace and is dotted with wonderful insights into history. It can be a bit of a bottleneck in places, above the clock for example, but if you pick an earlier time in the day it`s a truly breathtaking window into the city`s past.

After viewing the clock in the main street we found ourselves on the city walls. We followed the walls to the river, on the way were information boards explaining dates & history. Very interesting.

Walking the walls is a great way to see and get a feel for the city of Chester. We parked in the Little Roodee car park and joined the walls at the Cafe at the Walls and walked anti-clockwise all the way around in about 2 hours, stopping off at various points of interest along the way and coming down near the racecourse. Fairly easy walk but quite busy.
