It looks rather plain from the outside, inside you'll suddenly find a spectacular Romanesque and Early English church. In the Civil War the collapsed NW tower was used as a platform for cannon to attack Chester. There's a striking painting on one of the columns.

Well worth a visit, Henry V111 did his best to destroy this fine building but what is left is worth seeing. Lovely lady who served us a coffee was full of knowledge of the building and history
This church is lovely with some secrets from the Viking times. The Viking tour was interesting and took us along to some parts of Chester. There was a lot of information but we enjoyed it. I personal love the ruins outside the church. Weirdly enough there is a cafe inside the church. It's for free to go inside the church.

A beautiful church with a fascinating history, we weren't sure what to expect here but it is a beautiful building with a long and interesting history, well worth a visit - tea and coffee was available too! Situated right next to the Roman amphitheatre.
