Pocket Guide: Chester Chester City Walls Hotels

Cheshire is a delightfully 'English' county, in the sense that its pastureland, cattle, pretty villages and historic towns and cities are what most people think of when traditional rural England is mentioned. There are many historic monuments here, including castles, cathedrals and abbeys, not to mention later stately homes and country parks of the gentry. Unlike most English cities, however, Chester's city walls are almost completely intact and are a popular tourist attraction in their own right. Walk the Chester City Walls from your Cheshire hotel base for a truly interesting take on this historic city.

Cheshire Hotels for the Chester City Walls

The walls originally went up in 70AD, long before the Normans got to these shores, and over the centuries they were greatly altered and improved. During the English Civil War of the 17th century they were tested to exhaustion when Cromwell's troops broke through next to Newgate following a heavy hammering by artillery. King Charles apparently watched his army's defeat from Phoenix Tower. There's a lot to stir the imagination during a walking tour of the walls, and although these ones date from the 18th century many of the original stretches of wall can still be seen, and they have always followed the same course since Roman times. Enjoy a day out with terrific views of the city from your local Cheshire hotel or B&B.

A Walk Along Chester City Walls from Your Cheshire Hotel

Chester city walls stretch around the city for two miles and visitors can walk their entire length. There are various access points so you don't have to look for a beginning and keep on going; you can hop on and off just as you please. The steps next to the famous Eastgate Clock are the most popular point from which set out on a walking tour, and in fine weather this makes a perfect introduction to the city.

Chester is one of the few English cities, like York, to have retained most of their circuit walls. When you're based at a Cheshire hotel either in the city or close by they make an excellent destination for a day out.
