The historic city of Chester still has many remnants of its past and taking a tour is the best way to see all the hidden gems. Known as ‘the walled city’ Chester has been encapsulated by 3km of walls since Roman times, although the current ones today have been rebuilt over the years. Highlights include the tower where King Charles watched a civil battle from and the wishing steps, built in 1785, which are said to make your wildest dreams come true if you run up and down them holding your breathe!
In the evening, enjoy a pint in the city’s oldest pub, The Boot Inn, which dates back to 1643 or see if you can see a ghost in the haunted Ye Olde King’s Head. For some entertainment, Alexander’s Jazz Theatre will keep your toes tapping with rock, blues and jazz artists performing live.
