First visit to Chester, very impressed with the walk around the wall. Lovely walk around the City around 2 miles, some parts were blocked off because of maintenance, overlooks the racecourse in parts and also the river well worth it.

The walls are an excellent way to see Chester from a different perspective. They are suitable for all ages and give you some great photo opportunities. Great thing to do on a clear day.

A walk around the walls gets the heart pumping rather than the shuffle walk of the streets. It's a great way to walk around to see all the sights and stop off at points to look closer.

Lots to see and interesting information panels to read as you walk the two miles of the Roman city walls. A must and free attraction to gain an overall picture of Chester layout and surrounding areas and history

You can't really go wrong - Interesting, different and fun exercise. Loads of cafes and bars or restaurants etc close by. Would recommend a day visit with lunch somewhere in Chester.

A good workout and some lovely sights. Very enjoyable. Even saw a Falcon perform as we walked past the Falconry display.

Approx 2.5 miles of walls to walk round and see Chester. Lots of points of access and egress, some even suitable for the disabled. We parked at the racecourse, which is £5 for all day at the weekend and £4.50 the rest of the time....More

Any visit to Chester should have a walk of the walls included. Great condition to walk on and you see a completely different side to Chester! Lots of information boards as you go around with the history of the walls and Chester on. A must...More

You can walk around the walls in less than an hour without stopping, but you'll probably want to take some pictures. There are quite a few steps, but it is not really difficult. Some short sections are being renovated, but detours are provided.

Sorry for the delay in replying. The wall is free and open at all times. No guided tour but plaques explaining local sights and information at various points along the wall. The castle keep is free to to look around.

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
