Useful information


The city walls are extremely well preserved and are a good way of appreciating Chester. North Gate commands Northgate Street, one of the main thoroughfares of the inner city, which is lined with medieval façades. By following the eastern section of the wall you come to King Charles' Tower, from where the cathedral can be glimpsed through the trees. Newgate offers panoramic views over the little Roman garden and Grosvenor Park; on Bridgegate you can see the finest half-timbered house in Chester (1664).
