We will start a 2 hour walk starting on the castle walls and end at beautiful Cathedral part of which was an abbey in the 1200's. We will investigate some of the excavated Roman ruins, and I will tell you about some of the marvellous pieces of history surrounding this lovely town. At the end of the walk we will have some refreshment in the shopping area where I know you will want to browse and enjoy the Rows and shopping arcade.

A Recent Review of this tour

Pauline arranged for a tour team. We traveled around Liverpool, taking in the sights and then into Chester where we walked the ancient streets, sampling food, shopping, marveling at its history and ending up in a tour of a glorious church. Pauline was a font of information. We lunched in a wonderful tavern outside Chester on our way to the Royal Liverpool Golf Course where we enjoyed its history. We traveled the countryside with Pauline's continuous dialog. A truly unforgettable day. An A+ rating!
