There’s no better introduction to a city than hopping on a City Sightseeing Bus Tour! This bus tour allows you to hop on and off, at various stops around the city, so you gain as much as possible, from this inspiring location, during your stay.
Chester was founded as a “castrum” or Roman fort in the year 79 AD by the Roman Legio II Adiutrix during the reign of the Emperor Vespasian. Chester's four main roads, Eastgate, Northgate, Watergate and Bridge, follow routes laid out at this time – almost 2,000 years ago. No city in Britain is richer in terms of archaeological and architectural treasures than Chester with its Walled City on the River Dee. This tour will introduce you to the City Walls, the Cathedral, Roman Amphitheatre and how Chester has survived and prospered through the ebb and flow of history, as you are transported around the city.
Discover the site of the ancient Amphitheatre, where the partially-excavated ruins of the largest stone-built Roman military remain. To feed your appetite for history further, visit the award winning Dewa Roman Experience where you can enjoy wandering through Roman Streets, explore archaeological remains and handle ancient relics in a hands-on studio or hop off at the Grosvenor Street Museum. However, it’s not all about the history as Chester boasts a fantastic selection of places to shop! Visit Frodsham Street where shopaholics will find both the Mall and Grosvenor Shopping centres - The Forum Shopping Centre and Markets are also well worth exploring.
In the evening you may want to unwind in Chester’s chic and trendy bars, drinking award winning cocktails and Champagnes! Perhaps you might want to dine on delicious a la carte meals or discover the city’s real ale pubs and cosy bistros. This is just a snap-shot of amazing things to see and do in this stunning city!
Don’t miss all the exciting things this city has to offer, with this amazing hop-on-hop-off bus tour!
