Chester Cathedral

Saint Werburgh Street, CHESTER, CH1 2HU

With 1000 years of history, a visit to Chester Cathedral opens a window onto a rich and varied story of monks, kings and craftsmen. The Cathedral is an extraordinary mixture of old and new, with something for everyone to enjoy. From Norman arches to gothic columns, spectacular 14th-century woodcarvings to afternoon teas in the Refectory Café. There is so much here to discover from modern works of art to the tranquil Cloister Garden, a haven of peace and calm on a busy day. The cathedral hosts a wide range of special events and concerts throughout the year.
