Walls of Chester Reviews
We took a Monday morning stroll around the full length of the wall. Loved the experience, especially as we had no idea it ran alongside the race course. Fabulous, don’t miss it. more »
Overall, a great walk, well signposted and with information available. Some sections seem to have been demoted to pavements! However, a 'must' for all visitors. more »
Fantastic walk. Full of history. No good for prams, wheelchairs because you are walking the original wall. Beautiful views, you can exit the wall at various places for shops toilet etc.
A lovely little walk around the city walls in Chester. Think they're about 2.5 miles in total and take in tons and tons of history. You can see the racecourse that used to be a bustling port, the Shropshire Grand Union Canal, River Dee, the Cathedral, the Castle and lots of other Roman bits.
