Liverpool, United Kingdom
Duration 4 hrs
Explore nearby Chester, marveling at its excavated Roman ruins and medieval city center before enjoying free time.
Enjoy a leisurely drive inland to Chester, a delightful city with archaeological treasures dating to its Roman occupation. Chester thrived as a major port until the River Dee silted up in the 17th century and Liverpool captured much of its trade, but the landmarks still stand as a testament to Chester’s grand past.
Follow your guide on a walking tour of its most historical areas, during which you will enjoy an up-close view of Chester’s red-sandstone defensive walls. Dating to 100 AD, they remain the most complete Roman and medieval wall system in the United Kingdom. The architectural treasures that the walls enclose are just as impressive.
Your guided walk takes you past the Norman cathedral (you may choose to go inside at the end of the guided walk if there are no services taking place). Throughout your visit you will constantly encounter living history, from the Roman cobblestones under your feet, to the myriad of genuine old black-and-white Tudor timber buildings on either side of you.
Later, during approximately one hour of free time, you might wish to further explore the city, and of course, there are also plenty of interesting shops to browse or places to pick up a bite to eat.
