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!

My teenage children and I walked the route around the city walls. Quite informative with information boards along the way. Weather was not brilliant it would be nicer on a sunny day! Only about two miles, does not take too long.

We walked the city walls throughout the day and came down steps to see different area's, the shops, cathedral, amphitheatre, roman gardens and the river. You could do it all at once but there is a lot to see and did get busy on certain parts due to it being half term. Currently, there are sections under repair and I... More

Traveling along the wall allows you to see the extent of this great City with out the bustling crowds and traffic. You can also exit it at several places for a break, drink, meal and then continue.

We have just walked the walls. It is a good but easy walk with plenty of information signs. The views are very good and there is plenty to see as you walk along. Well worth a stroll round on a dry day.

You either love or hate Chester. We love it. The history behind the walls is truly amazing. Start you stay with this 3km circular walk fairly flat with something to catch your eye at every step. Keep your kids interested by getting them to check your progress by finding the brass distance markers.

Spent a couple of hours walking the perimeter of the walls on a Saturday afternoon. Plenty to see whilst you walk around this historic city, lots of places for pit stops if you want something to eat or drink along the way. A well worth it activity for lovers of fresh air, splendid vistas and history.
