"The walls" City Walls Tip by sabsi
City Walls, Chester: 23 reviews and 61 photos
The Romans started building a stone wall around Chester between 90 and 120 AD. To defend the city from the Vikings the Saxons later placed the walls to where they are now.
In the Civil way they were heavily destroyed by cannon fire and after they were repaired in the 18th century they were turned into the 2 mile promenade they are now.
The walk along the walls makes you see almost the whole city. The views aren't as beautiful as in Britain's other walled city - York - though.
Address: All around the city centre
