Travelling around Chester
Founded as a Roman Fortress in the first century AD, the historic town of Chester is situated in the northwest of England, just a stone’s throw from the Welsh border. With Roman walls and rows of black-and-white timbered buildings, Chester offers an intoxicating mix of old and new.
Walk in the footsteps of Roman Legionnaires and marauding Vikings as you drink in the sights and the sounds of this ancient city, with its soaring cathedral, beautiful stately mansions and turreted medieval castle. With contemporary delights, such as the world-renowned Chester Zoo, this really is a must-see destination.
Chester has excellent road and rail links, and Arriva bus services provide routes in and out of the town centre. Visit nearby towns, such as Wrexham and Crewe, or hop on a bus and head out along the North Wales coast.
