Town

Details

The walled city of Chester lies on the River Dee just east of the border with Wales; it has a population of around 80,000. Founded as a Roman fort in AD 79 it was one of the three main army camps in the Roman province of Britannia and later became a major civilian settlement. Apart from a 110 yard section, the listed Grade I walls are almost complete. It has a number of medieval buildings although some of the black-and-white buildings within the city centre are Victorian restorations.

Chester serves as a gateway to north Wales via the A55 Expressway and all trains for the North Wales Coast line run from the city.
