Chester Cathedral, Chester: 37 reviews and 70 photos
The Cathedral was originally an abbey called St. Werburghs which was built in 1092. St Werburgh was a princess, when she died she was buried in Staffordshire but because of fighting with Danes her remains were brought to the cathedral, she became a nun and an abbess. She is associated with miracles of healing.
This church was started in 1250 and apparently took over 250 years to actually complete, although much restoration has been done over the years.
The church apparenrly receive no money from the Church of England and therefore now charge an entrance fee. Before this was introduced it was a case of a donation but it seems enough donations were not given.
Opening times are:
Monday - Saturday 9am - 5pm
Sunday 1am - 5pm
Adults £4, Senior Citizens £3
Children 5 - 16 years £1.50
Also apparently there is no charge if you are attending a church service.
