What you should see and do during a visit to Chester, England

I was recently given the challenge by Superbreak of exploring a city in 48 hours, and I had no hesitation in choosing the historic city of Chester. We live 25 minutes away from this beautiful city, but there is so much that Chester has to offer that we have never experienced. Chester is a city full of variety, from ancient walls to modern and vibrant restaurants. So what did we get up to during our 48 hours.

Wonderful historical city with tudor style buildings!  Step back in time in the city of Chester, England, built on the old Roman walls over 2,000 years old.   When I was there over twenty years ago they would close the main gate of the city each night at curfew.  Just a three hour train ride away from London.  Definitely worth a stop for a day or two!

Ah Chester, the city I've loved since I was a little girl. So much so I still live 9 miles out and went to University there. --- Alley in Chester City Centre, Cheshire
