5. Chester Cathedral
Parts of Chester Cathedral are almost 1,000 years old, making it one of the most excellent examples of medieval architecture in the country. Tower tours are available, making this a great place to look into the city’s past while glancing at its present. Chester has an unusual cathedral, built as a monastery and rebuilt late.
The story is exciting and interior accessible and welcoming. A lovely cafe too and an excellent shop/loo facilities. A very active cathedral with always something interesting to see and the fabulous red sandstone building. A refectory is the right place for lunch and reasonably priced, which the church also supports.
