Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral Tours

Chester Cathedral is a Church of England cathedral built on Anglo-Saxon foundations dating back to the year 907. Since then it has gradually been extended and rebuilt three times, the most lasting design from 1250 being what we see today. For the first 530 years it was known as Saint Werburgh's Abbey after the remains of the Saint it housed. The Dissolution of the Monasteries saw it become a cathedral. It was thanks to the admiration of King Henry VIII that it has survived.

Cathedral At Height Tour
Our tower tour with a twist will allow you to immerse yourself in our unique blend of medieval and modern history. See one city, two countries and five counties from the top of the cathedral tower. Climb through 900 years of history and discover our hidden spaces.

Chester Cathedral

The Eastgate Clock

Eastgate Clock The Eastgate Clock

Today the Eastgate Clock is our city landmark which is a popular photo stop and features on many guides to the city. Erected on top of the stone archway over Eastgate Street in 1899. The Eastgate Clock was built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee of 1897.

The stone archway underneath the clock was built earlier in 1769 to replace an earlier Medieval gate which replaced an even earlier roman gate!

Complete City Walls

Chester Walls

Chester has a complete stone wall surrounding the city which you can walk on and see views of the city you would not see at street level. See the Norman defences, Roman fortifications/walls, Chester Castle and the city gates. You can get on and off the walls at different points along the way.

Note, sometimes the walls are being repaired in places so you might not be able to walk the complete route. Take an online tour of the city walls here

The River Dee at Chester

Queens Park Bridge

The River Dee is very popular in the summer months where you can sit on the banks and listen to brass bands play in the old band stand, or take a leisurely cruise on the showboats, hire a rowing boat or motor boat, take a walk along the path on the banks to the Earls Eye, watch out for Cormorants or feed the Swans, buy a Cheshire ice cream, watch the river boats from the beer gardens. A great place to relax on Sunday afternoons!

Grosvenor Park in Chester

Grosvenor Park, Chester

Grosvenor Park was one of the first public parks in the UK outside of the industrial cities and was given to the citizens of Chester (Cestrians) in 1867 by Richard Grosvenor, the Second Marquess of Westminster. It is the ideal place to relax on hot summer days. There is also a miniature steam railway for children! Next, follow the winding paths that take you down to the river.
