Chester Cathedral is many things to many people: a vibrant community of worship, an ancient abbey, an archaeological treasure, a cultural hub, a centre of musical excellence and a unique blend of medieval and modern history.

This is a must see whilst in Chester. Beautiful red sandstone construction and tiled floors. Although typical of high church, most have not retained the colourful tiled floors, so it's worth visiting just for this. We had to laugh at the stained glass window featuring...More
Travelled from Liverpool in 45 mins by train. A bus then takes you directly into town at No extra cost. 5 mins. You have this large imposing Cathedral in the centre surrounded by very imposing buildings. Parking for those who use the car is easy....More
Started our tour of Chester with a visit to the Cathedral. Free entry but it is only right to give a donation after your visit. You are given a guide of points of interest to look at. Cathedral is well presented with information but had...More
My Dad worked here for many years and have some very happy memories of life
around the cathedral, Playing in the gardens at the back with my children and
other family members.
My Dad showed us a carving in the walls inside the cathedral with...More
Such a joy to walk around the cathedral - it's simply stunning. Lots of interesting bits of information around. I lost my husband for some time as we both happily just walked around in our own worlds. Find a quiet spot and just sit and...More
We were lucky enough to hear the choir singing on our visit which sounded amazing with the acoustics in this venue. Lovely to wander around taking in the atmosphere and history of this wonderful building. Also had a relaxing break with cake and tea. A...More
I certainly did use my camera. Especially on the Lego project. They are aiming to build a model of the whole of the cathedral in Lego. Pay a £1 and you can add a brick - or more if you're flush! It's really coming on and is... More
I certainly did use my camera. Especially on the Lego project. They are aiming to build a model of the whole of the cathedral in Lego. Pay a £1 and you can add a brick - or more if you're flush! It's really coming on and is brilliant. The walls are covered in bible stories all in mosaics. I've now had some great photos but don't know how to add them to the review I've already done!
Hi! I need help with my itinerary through Chester, is it possible to visit the following in two days just by walking or would I need to take a bus or some kind of transport? - City Walls (take a walk along them) - Chester Cathedral - Grosvenor Museum - Roman Amphitheatre What would you add? Can I cover this in two days just by walking? Or would a day be enough? Hope you can help me. Thank you very much TA!!!

Chester is a very small city - you could cover this in two hours walking! Depends on how long you spent at each stop of course.

Hi, I was in the Cathedral a few weeks ago and they said they think they are about a year behind, so go and have another look and buy some bricks.

Hello My sister and I are doing a trip around the UK Sep/Oct 15 and we are looking at spending 10 nights in England (excluding London - this we will do a further 6 nights there). We will be travelling down from Edinburgh to Kendal to spend 2 nights there with relatives, then onto to York for a night. This is where I get stuck.. I really really want to do at least a night at Bath, but know nothing about what is in between. I was thinking of going to Chester from York and then work my...More

Hi, Stephanie, Several choices of routes from York to Bath, depending on your interests & the proportion of time you want to devote to that stretch. The quickest would be the motorway system to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace & lots of sights in the town. Stratford is on the edge of the Cotswolds.. About 2 hrs 40 mins. You could build in Warwick castle, which is about 20 minutes before Stratford. and still have the late afternoon & evening to explore Stratford. Check parking...More
