“One of a series of friendly trails written and illustrated during lockdown by the team here at the Visitor Information Centre to give you a warm welcome to our much-loved City of Chester”

Chester's history often is not neat and tidy. You are in a city where Roman, Medieval, Tudor, Stuart, Georgian & Victorian influences jostle for position along streets nearly 2000 years old - sometimes these influences happily rub shoulders in the same building. This short guide really mixes it up, but we hope that at the end of your walk you will have a little more of an understanding of how the largest fortress in Roman Britain became the city we know and love, spending several hundred years as one of the most important ports on the west coast along the way.

Your walk starts at the Visitor Information Centre (VIC), located in the Town Hall (more of which later, when we finish our tour). The walk is a little over 2.5 miles (4km) long.
