The city of Chester
Chester's unique walled city centre is packed with history ranging from ancient Roman ruins and a 900 year old Cathedral, to 13th Century half timbered shops. In the mainly pedestrianised city centre stylish designer stores rub shoulders with familiar high street names and quirky gift shops.
