Chester Tour Company

History Hunter

Explore great treasures from Chester’s 2000 years of heritage including the unique, world-famous Rows two-tier under cover shopping galleries and the most complete City Walls in the country.

Here groups can also discover Britain’s largest Roman Amphitheatre and oldest racecourse plus a stunning 1000-year-old Cathedral built on the site of a Roman temple.

It’s also got one of the most photographed clocks in the world towering above the Eastgate – the original entrance to the Roman Fortress of Deva.

Groups can follow in the footsteps of Roman Legionaries, Viking Raiders, Anglo-Saxon warriors, Norman invaders, and English Civil War soldiers as we walk through the exciting eras from the past that have shaped the destiny of Britain.

This cast list of history also includes Welsh tribes from across the border who attacked the Roman Fortress of Deva and sea-faring adventurers who sailed from the largest port in Northwest England during the Middle Ages.

The tour can also be delivered aboard a coach tour around the city.
