Visited Chester for Christmas shopping on a coach trip. Did nt have much time for shopping so decided to use the couple of hours we had for sight seeing. The cathedral was decorated for Christmas, the rows of trees decorated looked impressive. The garden in the centre was lovely. The choir was practicing which was nice. Well worth a look.
We stopped off at this magnificent cathedral just before leaving Chester. It is a lovely serene place to sit and contemplate life. Also a wondful place to have a cup of coffee with friends and partake of a scone they were lovely and fresh we would recommend the cherry ones.
A modest cathedral but welcoming and with some charm. I liked the garden in the cloister and the mosaics in the nave are unusual. The stained glass, with the odd exception, is gruesome. The least impressive the English cathedrals but still worth a visit.
This was a welcoming cathedral where we were able to sit quietly, pray, light a candle and have a lovely cup of tea afterwards. The shop is lovely too, especially at this time of year with the Christmas items.
Chester cathedral may not be the biggest but it is an oasis of calm in a busy city. Packed with history, the cloister garth at the centre is so peaceful and you can imagine the Benedictine monks walking the cloisters. A must see when visiting Chester. The refectory also provides good refreshment and the gift shop is well stocked too.
