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
century Rows, half timbered gallery shops on two levels, to the largest
Amphitheatre in Britain.
