Named the second best place to live in the UK, Chester offers a number of unique walks. Follow in the footsteps of the Roman soldiers, the medieval archers, and the elegant Georgian promenades and enjoy a walk around the Chester city walls or take a stroll on the Roodee.
On the two-mile circular stroll, see the Water Tower that is no longer next to the water, the remains of the Roman amphitheatre, the tower where Charles I stood to watch the Battle of Rowton Moor, the famous, much-photographed clock on the Eastgate. You can even try your luck on the wishing steps.
The Grade I listed walls are the best preserved in Britain and offer the perfect footpath around our beautiful city. The walk follows the paved path on top of the walls, there are no gates but several steps and will take around an hour to complete.
Start your walk at the Watergate bridge at the bottom of Watergate Street.
Don’t forget, we offer free parking at The White Horse, ideal if you are planning your Chester tour.
