Liverpool - Chester City Tour

Enjoy a visit to the historical city of Chester on this half-day tour. In the comfort of your luxury motorcoach depart from Liverpool for the drive to Chester, en-route your guide will point out and provide commentary about the sights you will see along the way.

Explore the exciting history of Chester with a walk around this Cathedral City led by your qualified guide. Find out about the fascinating history of one of the best preserved complete walled cities in the British Isles. Explore the unique half-timbered galleried streets and enjoy the splendour of the black and white buildings. This is the city where the 20th Roman Legion built Fortress Deva and the largest stone amphitheatre in England.

Next visit one of the most popular places in Chester. The Cathedral attracts over one million visitors each year and visitors are encouraged to share in the rich beauty of this, the most complete medieval monastic complex still standing in the UK.

A place of worship for over 1000 years, parts of the Norman church begun in 1092 can still be seen in the present building, which reflects all the Gothic architectural styles. Discover the finest Quire stalls in Britain, with intricately carved 'misericords'; the famous Cobweb Picture; and a facsimile of Handel's Messiah first rehearsed here. Beautiful monastic cloisters and garden.

Following your visit of the cathedral, enjoy some free time to explore the city at your leisure. Perhaps browse the shops for some interesting souvenirs of your visit or learn more of the history of the city at one of the museums before re-boarding your motorcoach for the return journey to Liverpool.
