After living in Chester some years ago it was lovely to come back to reminisce. You can almost walk around the entire city round the walls and you see everything from the Dee to the canal to the Roodee, the Roman ruins and all the little alleyways linking up the streets. It's a long walk round but so worth it.

Walk all the way around Chester on the medieval wall. Excellent, and free! Past the castle, overlook the racecourse, canal basin, and the river. Over the main shopping area where the clock is. Great way to see Chester

If you want to see a lot of Chester walk the full length of the walls it is well worth it. You will see the river the race course , castle , walk over the famous clock in north gate st. And the many locks on the canal

Great to walk around this wonderful city and to see it from the walls. I was impressed that some gateways had to be enlarged because of modern traffic and the town has rebuilt instead of just knocking down. this makes the walk easier and better

Did not walk the whole wall just near the Cathedral. The steps can be quite awkward for "disabled" people. Some very good views.

On our day out in Chester this was one of the highlights of our day . The views and the information provided along the wall makes this well worth the walk plus the weather was perfect .

I did not expect to visit such a excellent monument. I walked there and I admired the view of the city, the river and the others monuments. I recommend it and I hope to go again.
