Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral was founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092, and has a rich and varied history. The original church was built in the Romanesque or Norman style, parts of which can still be seen today. This church was subsequently rebuilt from around 1250 onward in the Gothic style, a process which took about 275 years and resulted in the incredible structure seen today. With the most complete set of monastic buildings in the country, a Georgian square and series of streets, the remains of Roman barracks on the Dean’s field and the largest open green spaces within the walls, visitors can experience everything the cathedral has to offer. Enjoy a guided tour of this majestic building. There will be chance to buy coffee in the cafe before your tour.

Lunch in the Refectory cafe

Enjoy a soup and sandwich lunch, followed by tea and coffee in the 13th century monk’s dining hall.

Explore the town with your guide

Take in the Medieval Rows, the Roman walls and the spectacular Eastgate Clock.

River cruise

This tranquil half-hour cruise along the River Dee departs from The Groves. From there, you will go upstream, under the suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl’s Eye, then you’ll follow the long sweep of the Meadows to the city limits before returning to The Groves. The river tour of Chester offers a different view of the city and takes in some beautiful riverside properties.
Look out for the local wildlife too, including swans, cormorants and kingfishers.
