  • The Chester Cathedral was our first stop in Chester. It was open to the public and we didn't have to pay an entrance fee, but we still made a donation. With buildings like this, I like to try and get to the highest point (usually a bell tower) and get nice views, but I'm pretty sure you can only access the tower via the tours and there were no tours the day we were in town. Darn! The inside rooms and the grounds were very nice.

  • Recently visited to see an exhibition of sculpture housed within the Cathedral and its gardens. It was well worth the visit however the cathedral is worth visiting on its own accord with much to interest from the architecture and splendid sculptural and artistic features. There are exquisite mosaic reredos and tiled floors.

  • A beautiful cathedral. Full of the Holy Spirit. So many of these large ancient buildings need a colossal amount of money just to keep going. The staff in the entrance were quick to point out that they were asking for donations, not an entrance few. It was lovely to see Chester cathedral housing an art exhibition, "the Ark".

  • Great visit. Recommend the bell tower trip. Matt was an amusing and informative guide and views from the top amazing!

  • A beautiful cathedral. Lovely building. The lego model of the cathedral is very impressive. Well worth a visit and admission is free!
