Free entry, beautiful architecture. Had a lovely cup of tea and a natter to the church volunteers, who give you an insight of who made what in the church.
Well worth a visit. Free to enter and full of fascinating quirks, such as the 'new' East wall, which cut off the original walls, now explorable ruins outside.
A great way to spend half an hour if you're in the city.......free to enter, this church is very interesting, especially the outside ruins. The is plenty of information that explains the history of it, and lovely little cafe selling cheap food and coffee/tea etc. Well worth visiting.
As we've been a family of LEGO builders, my son (age 15) and I visited the temporary LEGO exhibition 'Bricks in Motion‘ in the Cathedral, and we really enjoyed it. The entry fees for the exhibition are reasonable (adults £3.00, U16s £2.50), and there's no apparent time limit on how long you can stay in the enclosed exhibition area. Most... 更多
pen freely most days till at least 4pm. This was the original catherdral church. Lots of interesting history explained within, and no obligation to donate, although running costs must be enormous. Second hand books on sale and a nice cuppa available. Great place to pop in and unwind, even maybe have a quick pray?
If you're in the Groves/Amphitheatre area of Chester, take half an hour out and visit St John's. Better still, if there's a volunteer guide on duty, take up the offer of a 'whistle stop' guided tour.

This church was once Chester's cathedral, and is now partly ruined. So there's plenty of history to take in (the organ was used at a coronation!), and a useful little guide you can read that points out key things of interest. Look out for the medieval coffin high in the ruins! Additionally, the church is working quite hard to look... 更多
Having descended from the city walls to look at the Roman Garden and the amphitheatre we decided to take a stroll around and in this church too as it was so close and free. The attendant was helpful and informative and the stained glass was beautiful. Partially in ruins the church has an interesting history.
Dating back to 689, Chester's 1st ever Cathedral from 1075 to 1102, used as a Parliamentarian gun emplacement in 1645, this church is free to visit and it is right by the park and "Lost Coliseum". Well worth a visit.
