Chester Cathedral

things to do in north wales

Founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092, Chester cathedral was built in the Romanesque or Norman style, parts of which can still be seen today.   The church was subsequently rebuilt from around 1250 onward in the Gothic style, a process which took about 275 years an resulted in the incredible structure seen today.  With the most complete set of monastic buildings in the country, a Georgian square and series of streets, the remains of Roman barracks on the Dean’s field and the largest open green spaces within the walls, visitors can experience everything the cathedral has to offer.
