One of the things as a tourist in the UK is that it easy to become a bit tired of looking at churches and cathedrals. We walked past this one on our way to visit something else, but a spur of the moment decision to go in was well worth it. We had a free guided tour (donation at the... 更多
Visited this interesting church and learned that this was the original Chester cathedral. There were a few localised displays there to peruse and a church leaflet guide to purchase. There was also a second hand bookshop and cakes vendor there
This is one of the nicest churches I've been in. I can remember visiting with my sister as a teenager and being equally impressed. It's in a quiet, peaceful place, and the high light to me was the faded painting on a pillar which was probably painted by someone who had been to the " holy land" possibly during the... 更多
We went here at xmas5 and they had an exhibition of variously decorated Xmas trees which were great. Some even decorated with beer cans. Free to get in and they only like a donation. Lovely.

While walking to the Amphitheatre you will probably pass the ruins of the original and much larger Catherdral. Today it is a roofless site of the Norman Choir and Medieval Chapels. It has a long and facinating history. The first Church started in 689. The Anglo-Saxon King Etheired of Mercia had a dream about seeing a hind on this site.... 更多
We were delighted to find this church very near to the Roman Amphitheatre. We were greeted at the door by Geraint who took us on an incredibly well-informed and light-hearted tour of the interior. This church was Chester's first cathedral and contains artefacts from Saxon times, the crusades and Restoration, to name a few. We also met the Rector (I... 更多
