“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”

What the Dickens! It's a trail around Victorian Chester – or it's not all Black & White (although a lot of it is) Chester's famous black and white buildings attract visitors from across the world. But take a closer look. What at first appears to be a medieval or Tudor building may well be Victorian... Chester's half-timbered revival began in the 1850s and carried on through into the early 20th century. There are of course superb examples of genuine 16th and 17th century town houses on the city's main streets (notably Watergate Street and Lower Bridge Street), but much of Chester's present-day appearance owes itself to Victorian enthusiasm for the picturesque. This trail will help guide you through this fascinating and perhaps often overlooked chapter in the city's rich histor
