Chester’s walled city is under an hour’s drive from Yew Tree Farm.
The ancient city is a truly breathtaking experience. Each chapter of Chester’s history is etched into the very fabric of the city. Wherever you go you are walking where Roman Legionaires marched to war, Viking raiders wreaked havoc and Norman invaders conquered Anglo Saxons.
Chester has the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse and the largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain, plus a 1000 year old Cathedral with Europe’s finest example of medieval carvings – and of course the one and only 700 year old Rows galleries to scratch that shopping itch..
Walk around the walls, take a boat trip on the river, plan a visit when the races are on and the excitement really begins.
