The Eastgate Clock is perhaps the most famous view in Chester. Julie has sketched and painted it numerous times from the street and from up on the walls.
The walls are the oldest, longest and most complete Roman walls in Britain, parts of which are almost 2000 years old.
We are the only city in Britain that retains the full circuit of its ancient walls. Walking the walls gives wonderful views of the city, Chester cathedral, the River Dee, the racecourse and castle. The Walls are about two miles long and were first built by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago before being extended in the 10th century. During the 12th century, the Normans rebuilt and extended the Walls so for the first time since the Romans, they made a complete circuit around Chester. As city centre residents we use them daily for picturesque walks around our inspiring city.
