The Port of Chester - Guided Walk

Book now and pay your Tour Guide, Marie Layng, on the day. Be guided through the sites of the Roman and Medieval harbours, then the Old Port Area and lastly the Canal Basin. Discover why the Romans came to Chester, the importance of the port in the Middle Ages, the reason Charles I was desperate to defend it during the Civil War and, finally, the struggle to compete with the rise of Liverpool. This fascinating story of the Port of Chester and its role in the 2000-year history of the city will take 90-minutes, or a little longer, to unravel. Meet your guide at the entrance to 1539 Restaurant, Nuns Road, Chester to purchase tickets; £8 adult, £7 concession and £20 family. The walk is mostly on level ground, much on paved streets, but includes some steps. With two working days’ notice to the Chester Heritage Festival office, the route can be modified.

Takes place 25th June at 14:30.
