The Chester Millennium Festival Trail - Chester Self Guided Walk

Chester City Wall Walk, Chester, Cheshire

"The walls of this town
Are full of renown,
And strangers delight to walk round 'em,
But as for the dwellers,
Both buyers and sellers,
For me, you may hang 'em or drown 'em"

Jonathan Swift

Chester's City Walls form virtually a complete 2 mile (3 km) circuit around Chester city centre. They provide an enjoyable route to see many of the city's key heritage sites.

As you explore the Walls watch out for the metal panels that tell stories about different parts of the route and help identify where you are. These panels have been designed to fit with the walls status as a scheduled ancient monument. They are intended to be sympathetic to the fabric and appearance of the Wall. Also, they are there to be touched. Visitors (especially youngsters) are encouraged to bring paper and crayons to take rubbings of their raised text and illustrations.

The city has been defended with walls since the foundation of the Roman Deva Victrix fort on the site in AD 79. The current walls are mainly medieval and Victorian, although the earliest surviving sections date back to at least AD 120, and the most recent section was constructed as recently as 1966. The walls are a Grade I listed building, and are the most complete city walls in Great Britain.
