  • The church is adjacent to some wonderful romantic and evocative gothic ruins that are free to explore. Bring your camera!
  • Decent outlet place. The ruins outside are the best bit
  • Great little shop inside for drinks and snacks
  • I went to this church on halloween 2015 took a photo of an empty park from the eastside of church. Next day examined photo it has three ghosts in it, one is a hairy man holding a child the other is a monk. I was close to the arch with the coffin set into it the time was about 10pm the weather was clear and mild, I was with a friend on a ghost tour, the ghosts must have been in Grosvenor Park. This is true!
  • A must see on your tour to Chester, it's historically older than the Cathedral in town.
