Walls of Chester, Chester
(4.7/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
A snaking structure built by the Romans in 70-80 CE, Walls of Chester survive as an imposing, ornate reminder of the city’s Latin past. Visitors and locals can stroll along the top of the wall, making a 3.2 km (2 mi) circuit of Chester’s medieval city and taking in several notable structures, including a number of towers and gates. Remember to be careful while exploring the wall as pieces have been known to break off on occasion.
