Historic Chester - a very "English" City throughout the ages

Chester has 2,000 years of history. It was a Roman military fortress and an important port when Liverpool was only a village. It supported the King in the Civil War in the 17th century and was attacked by Cromwell's followers. It has the country's oldest race course and one of the most photographed clocks in England. The old walled city is breathtaking and makes history come alive.
