Travel Tips from people who've been to Chester
Chester is a small city but it's full of character and history.  Saint John the Baptist Church dates back to the Middle Ages, but the original foundation dates to Britain's Roman occupation.  Across from the church is a Roman Coliseum that was recently dug up.  There's always a flurry of activity happening here.  The Roman Walls encompass the city and it gives one a glimpse of what life was like in Roman occupied Britain at the time.  The Eastgate Clock found in the city centre of Chester is one of the most photographed sites next to Big Ben.  The shopping centers are also structured based on the original design of Chester's medieval streets.  Essentially, the modern shops are situated on areas that have not changed since the early Middle Ages.

A small city on the northern most border of Wales and England which was once associated to the Edmund the Black Prince. The Romans built a fort here as the name Chester means castle in Anglo. Some of the city walls still stand but there is little remaining. The cathedral and cloister are extremely impressive. The cloister was very dark and enclosed and cannot have been much fun for the monks living there. The city center is full of the Tudor style buildings.

Based on an ancient Roman City. Parking in town is super expensive, so take the park and ride into the city. Main street shopping is great with lots of Edwardian buildings. Make sure you visit the (free) Chester museum, was nearly empty when we went and was a great refuge from the cruddy weather!
