Walked the walls of Chester today..very interesting with a few liquid refreshments stops on the way around. Walking the walls in one visit gave a different aspect to the city and there is lots of historical information boards in prominent places of interest.

Walk the wall! A must during your visit I Chester. About 2.5 miles total. A lot of history to take in along the way. Great sightseeing and the perfect way to get a feel for the city. Plan to hop on and off with a lot of dining and beverages along the way.

I visited recently with my husband and two teenage girls. The walls are a free attraction and takes an hour or so to do a circuit at a strolling pace. We thought it was a great way to see the city and gave us a different perspective on it too! There are a few cafes on or near the walls... More

We decided to have a walk all the way round the walls. The guy at our guest house said it was roughly about two miles. I think it took us about 40 to 45 minutes to walk round in total. It is even in most places but you have to go up steps to get onto it. Some areas are... More

A must to walk around the wall and take photos please read the safety notice and enjoy. Look out for the Snowdonia mountain range in the distance.

We parked on the council car park by the castle and the university riverside campus. Great place to start the walk. Whatever you do, do not palk on... More

We walked the historic walls of Chester on s beautiful sunny day. So interesting and you take in so much of this gorgeous city including the race track and the cathedral. Only disappointment was that parts of the wall are being repaired just now but better that to preserve them than lose them! There are points along the wall with... More

Had a couple of hours before an appointment & decided to walk the city walls. Found the whole experience to be well worth it, only wished I could have spent more time at locations en route. If you're ever in Chester, make the city walls somewhere in your "to do" list!
