“A nice walk”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

A full circuit of the walls would take about an hour, we only did half, due to time, and we also stopped for tea at the" tea on the wall cafe" north of the cathedral, lovely little place. Some of the stretches have good views, other parts, less interesting. Squirrels can be seen playing near the cathedral. You can get on and off the wall at various points all the way around.

“What a walk!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

At a basic level it will take you 45 minutes to walk the walls. However, if you are stopping to read the plaques and use your imagination then double it. Then, if you are going to stop off at The Roodee, the canal, the town centre and the River Dee you can make it a whole day. A must do activity if you are anywhere near Chester

“Imagination”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

As a 12 year old boy I would ride 10 miles into Chester on my bicycle to walk these historic walls. I would allow my mind to imagine the walls being built, the people who built them and the everyday activity on these walls once built. Today you can still walk these walls and use them to gain easy access to various parts of this wonderful city.

“Walking the walls”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Chester's Roman Walls are great to walk around and marvel that they have stood there since 79AD. They are also a great way to get from one part of the city to another. Lots of information along them for the history hunters too.
