Chester Cathedral is many things to many people: a vibrant community of worship, an ancient abbey, an archaeological treasure, a cultural hub, a centre of musical excellence and a unique blend of medieval and modern history.

Chester Cathedral is a stunning facility with a rich history dating back to 1093. The building is free to visit though donations are appreciated. We loved our visit and returned the next evening for a touching Evensong performance.
Don't miss it!
Been to Chester lots of times but this is my first time inside the cathedral. It’s free to enter, you are asked for a donation but there’s no pressure if you can’t afford it. The building is very impressive and you can buy a booklet...More
This is a beautiful cathedral. It costs a lot of money to keep it so. I cannot understand the revues which accuse staff of imposing a “guilt tax”. We have been staying in Chester for a week, have visited the cathedral three times and have...More

I certainly did use my camera. Especially on the Lego project. They are aiming to build a model of the whole of the cathedral in Lego. Pay a £1 and you can add a brick - or more if you're flush! It's really coming on and is brilliant. The walls are covered in bible stories all in mosaics. I've now had some great photos but don't know how to add them to the review I've already done!
