Originally settled by the Romans as Fortress Deva, Chester is situated in the North West of England just a few miles from the North Wales border. 

The surviving grid pattern of the Roman streets are so compact that you can get around all of the city's landmarks on foot, while the most complete circuit of Roman, Saxon and medieval walls in Europe still encircles the old city.

Some 2000 years old, Chester offers a mixture of attractions, from the vibrant shops of the     13th century Rows, half timbered gallery shops on two levels, to the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain.
