Chester City Tour
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: lpl-001
Join us for a truly memorable visit to one of the most well-preserved and complete ancient walled cities in the British Isles.
Depart for the drive from Liverpool to Chester. En route, your guide will point out and describe the sights you will see along the way. Upon arrival in Chester, you'll begin your guided walking tour around this unique walled city. Learn about its fascinating history while exploring the unique half-timbered, gallery-filled streets and black and white buildings. This is the city where the 20th Roman Legion built Fortress Deva, and the largest stone amphitheater in England.
Next, you'll journey for an outside visit to the Cathedral, one of the most popular and beautiful places in Chester. The Cathedral attracts over one million visitors each year, and is the most complete medieval monastic complex still standing in the UK. A place of worship
for more than 1000 years, parts of the Norman Church dating back to 1092 can still be seen in the present building, which reflects Gothic architectural styles. Some free time will be made to explore the Chester at your leisure. Browse the shops for interesting souvenirs of your visit, or visit a museum to learn more about the history of the city before re-boarding your coach for the return drive to Liverpool.
