Pocket Guide: Chester Eastgate Clock Hotels

Cheshire is replete with great attractions, from castles and abbeys to theme parks and racecourses. The Romans were the first to come here and leave their mark in a positive fashion, building monuments, walls and roads as they went and establishing what would later become great cities. Chester is a case in point, with its beautiful walls and extensive Roman remains such as the amphitheatre. Book in to a Cheshire hotel or guesthouse close by and you can enjoy the city's many attractions, including the famous Eastgate Clock, the second most photographed clock in the United Kingdom after London's Elizabeth Tower (incorrectly referred to as 'Big Ben'!).

Cheshire Hotels for Chester's Eastgate Clock

The Eastgate forms part of Chester's ring of ancient stone walls, which are one of the city's main attractions. Although the gate which visitors see today is Georgian the original one was built on this spot by the Romans. The clock was added later to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. It's one of the city's major landmarks and in its final form was unveiled in 1899, when the queen turned 80. Like many famous landmarks such as the Shard in London and the Angel of the North, it was at first controversial, with many people considering it garish because of its elaborate ironwork frame and bright red and gold finish. It certainly continues to clash with its surroundings - one of the charges against it - but is now considered to do so in an interesting and creative way - how times, and tastes, change!

The Eastgate Clock from Cheshire Hotels

The Eastgate Clock is a useful landmark as well as an important and iconic one in Chester. It has clock faces on all four sides, and appropriately given its location uses Roman numerals. The clock is illuminated at night and is invaluable for orienting yourself in the dark streets. Once you have the clock in your sights you know precisely where you are. It had to be manually wound once every week until 1992, when an electric mechanism was installed. Don't miss this delightful and beautiful Chester landmark when you visit the city from your Cheshire hotel or B&B.
