One of the best ways to see Chester and Cheshire is often on foot. Whether you want to explore the city of Chester and its colourful history, or hike along a trail through the Cheshire countryside, there are options aplenty for the walking enthusiast.
Out in the countryside, you can join the Trans Pennine Trail that links the North and Irish Seas together and passes through several towns, villages and cities. You can head to Congleton and Walk the Dane Valley or even take in a quiet part of the coastline of the Dee Estuary on the Wildflowers Walk.
Walls of Chester
Roman legionaries, Anglo-Saxon warriors, Norman knights, medieval bowmen, Civil War cavaliers and Georgian dandies have all walked these Walls. Nearly 2,000 years of Chester’s history lies waiting to be discovered beneath your feet.
Along the way you’ll discover Chester’s most interesting and historic places, and enjoy great views of the city, its surroundings, the River Dee and the Clwydian Hills beyond.
