Travel Tips for Chester

Shropshire Union Canal

by bugalugs

This canal dates to 1772 and was originally the Chester canal. It linked Chester and Nantwich. In the 1790's the canal was extended to Ellesmere Port and to Shropshire and would have brought considerable cargo and investments to all the towns along the way.

Ruins of St John

by sandysmith

Most people will visit Chester's impressive cathedral but the ruins ofChester's first cathedral - St John's - are not so well known. Indeed it was only after several visits myself that I came across them - adjacent to one end of Grosvenor Park.

The church here was first begun in 1075, taking 200 years to build, reaching its most complete form in the late 13th century.

Do you have the time?

by MarvintheMartian

The Eastgate Clock is the main city centre land mark. People meet here (so not excuses for being late!), it's a great place to people watch and it's a good place to start your walk around the city walls.

The Rows

by bluesmama

The rows are two-story shops in the centre of Chester. So there are shops on street level and on top of those shops are "balconies" that you can walk along and shops you can go into. Sort of like in a modern shopping mall.

City Walls

by Balam

Chester has superb Walls and few places can boast of walls as Ancient and complete as these. They have an elavated walkway which lets you walk for 2 miles (3 km) right around the City where you can get some great views of the city. some of which you can only get from the walls.

The Romans first built wooden walls and deep ditches to keep marauding local tribes before they built walls of stone. In the middle ages these became the foundations of the east and north sections that you can see today. The rest being a 12th century extension which took in Chester Castle while Medieval watch towers strengthened the fortifications.
During the Civil war when Chester was besiged for 18 months by Parlimantarian troops King Charles I on one occasion stood on Phoenix Tower (now known as King Charles's Tower) watching his army being beaten at nearby Rowton Moor.
