Things to do in Chester



Chester is a city full of history. From walking round the Roman walls to exploring the world famous Chester Zoo this city is a must visit!

Chester got its station in the mid-1800s and has long been associated with the railway industry, which is why it’s such a well-connected city - with links to North Wales, Merseyside, Manchester, London and beyond. The city is a rare gem. Aside from being the home of fictional soap suburb Hollyoaks and the birthplace of arguably the best Bond (Daniel Craig, ahem), Chester is well known for its Roman history, and has a virtually complete Roman wall around it. You can’t visit the city without seeing at least one person dressed as a centurion, with helmeted schoolchildren in tow. It’s equally famous for its Rows, Medieval-era buildings with covered walkways at first-floor level, which the city still uses to this day for its shopping and restaurant centre.

It would be difficult to think of a more charming city anywhere in the UK, so whether you’re visiting Chester for business or pleasure, you’ve got to take some time to soak up the history and culture of this fascinating place.
