This is a fantastic walk around the old city, particularly on a lovely summer day. There are lovely views of the cathedral, river, canal, and racecourse. Historical points of interest are well explained at regular intervals around the walls. It is possible at numerous points...More

If the weather is nice and you enjoy walking and taking in the views and exploring history then walking the city walls is a good option to do this. Nice views, with pubs and cafes on the way round.

Walked the walls of Chester. A lot shorter than I imagined it would be.various sights to see on way round. The castle tower which was free to go up. Due to crowds we walked it again later in the afternoon.

If you want to go a walk for 45 easy minutes then do the walls. I've been on worse, but if you get the weather then a 4 star might appear.

Loads of car parks in the centre, Grosvenor Hotel car park entrance - 1 mins to walls. Law Courts / river area car parks - 1 mins to wall. Race course / Market area car parks (lots of them) - 1 mins to walks - hope this helps

Yes 100% but some parts are very narrow and best to keep your dog on its lead xx
