The cathedral is one of Chester's most impressive attractions. The misericords in the choir stalls are particularly fine and depict everyday medieval scenes that managed to survive the Dissolution and English Civil War. The high and beautifully preserved city walls are something you shouldn't miss. Originally constructed by the Romans, they were improved over the centuries and the best stretch is between Eastgate and the cathedral. One of the city's other famous monuments is the Eastgate Clock, built in 1897 and good for photo opportunities.
