    Chester City Walls

    Walls. The Berlin Wall. The Great Wall of China. Walls sausages. They're all great in their own right, but no other wall can compare to the walls of Chester, as Chester has the most complete city wall in Great Britain. In fact at around two miles in length, there is only a short break outside County Hall, by the River Dee. And that's to say nothing of the wall's almost 2,000-year history. If you like walls, Chester's the place to be.

    Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

    The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct carries the Llangollen Canal as it passes over the wide River Dee Valley between Llangollen and Wrexham in North-East Wales. The aqueduct runs from Trevor, landing at Fontcysyllte on the Southern end. If you happen to be in North-East Wales then it's definitely worth walking over, or under!

    Chester Christmas Village

    From November 11, 2010 to January 3, 2011, Chester's Castle Square was transformed (for the first time) into a Victorian-style winter wonderland. Complete with a Christmas market, Santa's grotto, ice rink, mulled wine (or cider), and (to top it all off) a big wheel offering stunning views all around. The event is set to return, at the very least, for the next two years.
