History Of Chester

Its origins can be traced to the Roman period when it was known as Deva Victrix, a bustling fortress and trading hub. The legacy of this era can still be witnessed in the remarkably preserved Roman walls that encircle the city, providing a unique glimpse into the past. Chester flourished as a mediaeval trading town, with its strategic location on the River Dee enabling it to become a key centre for commerce. The city's iconic Rows, mediaeval two-level galleries of shops, bear testament to this prosperous era and offer a distinctive architectural charm that continues to captivate visitors.


During the English Civil War, Chester played a significant role as a Royalist stronghold. The scars of this turbulent period can be seen in the impressive Chester Castle, a formidable fortress that was used by the parliamentarians during the civil war. It was originally constructed around 1070, and remodelled 1785-1822. Today, the castle stands as a reminder of Chester's resilience and its strategic importance throughout history. Chester's historical tapestry also weaves in the Victorian era, with the construction of notable landmarks such as the Eastgate Clock, a stunning timepiece that has become an iconic symbol of the city. The magnificent Chester Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, stands as a testament to the city's spiritual and cultural heritage.
