  • A great walk around the walls in the morning when it wasn’t too warm or busy. Really interesting signs to read, great to drop on and off the walls to different sites. Great way to get a feel for historic Chester.We wanted to have a stroll on the walls during our visit to Chester but we simply couldn't get enough of them.
  • I bet the man who built these is dead now. Actually I bet there was more than one, perhaps several hundred, but they're probably all dead anyway, it's a nice neat job though. Those Romans were busy little chaps weren't they? Anyway it's a pleasant stroll along the top of this wall and there are many wonderful licensed premises to visit as you do so. It's a very agreeable way of passing a sunny afternoon.
