My friend and I took an early, crispy walk around the city walls - a bit was under renovation so we cut short the entire length but its a great way to see the city and take in the atmosphere

Whilst staying in Chester, my partner and I enjoyed exploring by following the walls around the city. There are many splendid views to take in, as well as other sights, such as the roman amphitheater remains and the Eastgate clock.

Walked the walls on a cold and sunny day in December. Took a couple of hours and was very enjoyable. A bit uneven, it’s ages old after all! Good way to orientate to the city.

Visited today and did the circuit. Always do this walk when we visit and spot something different each time. Repairs still on going and one section the work seems to have stalled. Definitely worth doing although there are many steps so be warned.

We had a lovely walk around the walls with our children and grandchildren although we have done it many times before you always miss something.

Lovely walk on a very grey day! Some areas are under maintenance, but would recommend this as a way of seeing the centre of Chester, the river and also the racecourse! Can get off and on the city walls at various ponts

This is a lovely walk around the City with lots to see. As a local history buff I would highly recommend that you print off one of the many Guides/historical reports from the internet and get a good map of the City. If you don't...More

Joined a guided walk round the walls. Most educational but sadly very slow due to people with limited mobility.

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
