.
  • Chester is a walled city in Cheshire, England, on the River Dee, close to the border with Wales.
  • Chester has a fantastic reputation for being a welcoming, vibrant, and diverse location, which is why more than ten million tourists visit every year. Chester is perfectly located in the North West of England, bordered by North Wales, which is home to some of the most breath-taking natural scenery in the UK.
  • Major cities such as Liverpool and Manchester can be reached in less than an hour, with London just two-hours away by train.
  • The town’s location was chosen by the Romans as headquarters of Legion XX. Known as Deva, or Castra Devana, it was an important Roman town but was deserted by the early 5th century. There are a number of Roman remains, including the foundations of the north and east walls.
