This is a walk that needs to be done when visiting Chester. It gives a great history of the city and shows how the changes have impacted on the city over the years.
Chester's walls are extraordinarily well preserved and mark out the two mile perimeter of this lovely old city. It takes about 3/4 hour to walk the entire length and there are some good views on the way.
A full circuit of the walls would take about an hour, we only did half, due to time, and we also stopped for tea at the" tea on the wall cafe" north of the cathedral, lovely little place. Some of the stretches have good views, other parts, less interesting. Squirrels can be seen playing near the cathedral. You can get... More
just a great way to live and feel the historic past of chester. What a pity so many shoes are closing
At a basic level it will take you 45 minutes to walk the walls. However, if you are stopping to read the plaques and use your imagination then double it. Then, if you are going to stop off at The Roodee, the canal, the town centre and the River Dee you can make it a whole day. A must do... More

Chester's Roman Walls are great to walk around and marvel that they have stood there since 79AD. They are also a great way to get from one part of the city to another. Lots of information along them for the history hunters too.
The Walls of Chester are an historic feature which is a great way to see other sites around Chester city centre. It takes you along the river, through the city and displays a lot of Chester Roman past along the way. There are plenty of areas where you can come off and rejoin if you want to and it is... More
Since my last review of this "experience" nothing has changed. Still the only thing worth visiting dirty Chester for. Shops now multiples and becoming down market. Walls give good views good walk and thats about it. A visit to York is 100 times better.
If you want a good walk with a historical twist and interesting views then this is for you. Not far from almost anywhere on the wall walk are shops, places to eat and parking (most adjacent parking is expensive though). Short term (1hr free) parking can be found down by the river (down Souters Lane to The Groves) but this... More
