  • 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.

Where to stay in Chester

Chester is not only steeped in Roman history, but also packed with a wide range of modern lodging options. The selection of hotels runs the gamut from family-run operations to luxury big-name brands, known for offering spacious rooms upstairs and Michelin-rated cuisine downstairs. Most of Chester's finest hotels are located within the diminutive city center, which makes them an ideal base for exploring everything this urban area has to offer. A wider variety of less expensive options, including cozy B&Bs and traditional inns, is located a short walk from the town center.
