Chester

The most complete walled city in Britain is great for shopping. 

Chester, Cheshire, England

CHESTER - AT A GLANCE

  • Encircled by a glorious 2-mile ring of Roman and medieval walls, Chester is a rare blend of the ancient and traditional along with a dash of cosmopolitan chic.
     
  • Explore half-timbered buildings and Chester’s totally unique covered ‘Rows’ – great for shopping.
     
  • The 2-tiered galleries of shops in the Rows are packed with independent boutiques and high-street stores. And if that’s not enough, head to Cheshire Oaks, the UK’s largest designer outlet village just 10 miles from the city centre.
     
  • The surviving Roman grid pattern of streets is so compact you can get around all the city's landmarks on foot.
     
  • Stroll the walls, studded with historic towers and gates, then drop into the Amphitheatre – the largest in Britain. You can also find out what life was like in Roman Chester at the Dewa Roman Experience.
     
  • Nature lovers will enjoy the city’s famous gardens, and the nearby Delamere Forest.
     
  • Chester is just over 2 hours north of London by train.
