Chester has a host of great treasures spanning
2000 years of history. The City Walls, are the most complete in Britain. Although the present walls are mainly
from the Middle Ages, they have links to the planning of the city that date back to AD 79 and offer a fascinating 3 kilometre
circular walk around Chester.
The main shopping area lies within the City walls and extends from the Eastgate Clock - the most photographed time-piece
in the world after Big Ben.
You can see the unique world-famous 'Rows' two-tier
galleries, first floor shops, forming a continuous upper gallery along the main streets with superb shops of international renown and the Roman Amphitheatre - the largest arena ever
uncovered in Britain.
The Town Crier in full regalia, makes regular
announcements in summer.
