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.

Paid entrance fee to wander around and see the birds in cages or tethered up but the open air display was amazing. Falcons swooping around your heads! Very informative young people - well worth a visit!
We participated in the Cathedral at Height tour with a great guide, Matt. The history was amazing, the information about the bells was interesting and the views from the roof were great. You don't need to purchase the tour to take a look around the...More

Unlike many of our other ancient cathedrals, Chester Cathedral is less "showy". You might almost say it's "plain" by comparison.

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!
