Special Offers

  • Kids Go Free 
    We all need to do our bit to help the visitor economy recover in 2022, so we have decided for the first time in our 40+ history to have a “kids go free” policy on all our public walking tours. We’re hoping this will help cash-strapped families to be able to participate in more things, without having to pay a premium for, or choose between, activities during their visit. Tickets for all our public walking tours will now be priced at £10 per person with up to two under 16s going free per accompanying adult.

  • New Walls Walk in time for #CheshireDay

    Up for a challenge? Looking to impress on Instagram? The Guild of Chester Tour Guides is launching a brand new guided Walls Walk in time for Cheshire Day (30th March). Chester boasts the most complete circuit of city walls in the country, a popular promenade today with views on both sides across the many delights this charming historic city enjoys. We can now offer visitors and locals alike the opportunity to complete the full 2-mile circuit of the city Walls on a guided walking tour, and there’s even a well-earned “I Walked the Walls” certificate to collect at the end. And there’s more! Kids go free with an accompanying adult and will be given a mini “treasure hunt” to complete along the way. 

    Chester’s guided Walls Walk takes place every Saturday afternoon at 2.30pm, starting at the Town Hall Visitor Information Centre on Northgate Street. Allow approximately two hours for the full circuit. Tickets are available on the day direct from the Guide: £10 per person; up to two under 16s free with accompanying adult
