#1 of 61 in Sightseeing in Cheshire
Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

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.
