For those wanting to experience a slice of local history during their trip, Chester Cathedral will make an ideal first stop. This building dates back to the 11th century, with much of the Romanesque architecture surviving to the present day. You can see everything from the Roman barracks to the Tower as you explore the entire 900 year old building, while children will love the birds of prey and aerial displays on offer in the Falconry and Nature Gardens. To truly learn about the history of the Cathedral, you can take a guided tour with one of the resident experts to delve deep into Chester's past. The Tower Tour is a particularly recommended, allowing you to look out across the city, as well as over Cheshire's neighbouring five counties and even as far as Wales.
