Chester Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryChester was the important Roman city of Deva, set on the River Dee and almost on the Anglo-Welsh border. So once the Romans withdrew, the locals could continue with the centuries’ long border-town battles of Welsh vs English. It is now one of the best preserved medieval cities in the UK, with almost complete city walls while Victorian additions and restorations are unusually in keeping – notably Jacobean-style timbered public buildings and hostelries. Chester was also important to 19th century rail and canal transport development - a canal stretch beneath the city walls is still much used today. There are many Roman remains and the well-preserved castle is another popular visitor sight.
