History & Heritage
Chester AmphitheatreAround 2,000 years old, it is the largest stone-built arena of its kind in Britain.  Once a place of gladiatorial combat which saw 20th legion practicing for battle, it is currently undergoing archaeological excavations, the finds from which are available to view in a new exhibition at the Chester Visitors Centre.  


Chester CathedralOriginally built as an abbey for Benedictine monks, it has been the Cathedral of the Diocese of Chester since 1541 and is often thought of as a haven of calm within the hustle and bustle of the city.  From Norman arches to gothic columns, its fascinating architecture charms thousands of visitors each year. 
Eastgate Clock
Sample ImageErected in 1897, the historic clock is Chester’s most famous landmark and believed to be the most photographed clock in the world after Big Ben.  
The imposing structure sits proudly atop what was once the East Gate, one of four Roman gateways into the city.  

Chester RacesChester RacesStanding on the site of a large Roman harbor, this is the 65 acre home of Chester Races.  The first race took place in 1539 making it Britain’s oldest course, it now hosts fourteen race meetings from May through to the end of September and is unique in the fact that the horses run the mile long course anticlockwise.

The Rows
Chester RowsChester’s Medieval Rows are both unique and world-famous.  It is thought that they were originally Roman Barrack blocks with traders’ stalls in front of them and living quarters above, the two-tier, black and white timber framed shopping galleries are now home to a mix of high street favorites and independent gems. 


Chester WallsMade of earth and timber, the first walls were built by the Romans in 70AD.  With the sandstone version and fort constructed later, the city boasts the most complete Roman walls in the country.  A little over a two mile circuit, those wishing to enjoy a stroll around the walls will enjoy views of Eastgate clock, the amphitheatre, the towers and Chester racecourse.
